I have traveled to San Francisco twice before and both times I didn’t get to ride the cable car. Don’t know how that happened because it was certainly on my list of things to do, maybe I forgot? Well, third time is the charm, today we rode the cable car!
We weren’t the only people eager to ride the cable car and the line at Powel Station was super long. But they don’t completely fill the car at the first stop, so we simply walked two blocks to the second stop, where there was no line. We hopped on almost immediately, and left behind the patient tourists who were probably going to be there for at least another hour.
The trip up to Fisherman’s Wharf is very nice with lots of interesting things to see and beautiful sights to see. Sometimes the street is so steep it's a little scary and the ride's a little expensive, but it's all well worth a go. I’m happy I finally did it!
