San Francisco Attractions
The cable car up the hills is a crucial aspect of San Francisco since 1873. Lines run from Hallidie Plaza off Union Square, and Market Streets to Fisherman’s Wharf. The Powell &Hyde is the steepest, reaching a scary 21 degree grade between Lombard and Chestnut Streets. The Cable Car Museum and Powerhouse shows the huge motors which still power these cables
