Since 1873, cable cars have run up and down the hilly city, though after the 1950s, these cars have been kept in operation more out of historic nostalgia. Seventeen miles of track remain and have been deemed a historical landmark.

Interesting experience to say you rode the car, better to buy a pass for a days travel rather than one trip, they don't take cards, so cash only. Again overcrowded, we could see most thing because we stood up, but if you sat down, you...More
So once you get past the ridiculously confusing map which sites where to pick up trams and where they run too (please learn from the London Underground as to how it is done clearly) you get to ride on a iconic tram.

Don’t be put off by the queues at either end of the lines as they move pretty quick.

Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
