There’s A Magical Streetcar Ride In San Francisco That Most People Don’t Know About

You won’t find a better or cooler way to get around San Francisco than this traditional ride in the heart of the city. Head on over to the Embarcadero and hop on the F line streetcar. Now, you may be wondering what the difference is between a streetcar and a cable car. If it runs on steel rails with a trolley pole connected to an overhead wire above, it’s a streetcar or trolley. If it runs on steel rails with an open slot between them, and no overhead wires, it’s a cable car.

That said, we think the F Line streetcar offers the most magical ride in the city as it offers spectacular views of the bay, Coit tower, Fisherman’s Wharf, and more. Visit The San Francisco F Line Streetcar site for more information.
