Cable Car Museum


Check out the Cable Car Museum next time you are in San Francisco. This is just one of some wonderful historical attractions. This one is free and you can learn about the history of the cable cars.
These huge engines and winding wheels pull the cables for the cars.


Other devices used throughout the history of these cable cars, historical old cable cars, and photos from the Earthquake and Fire of 1906 are displayed as well. Ring an actual cable car bell...




Underneath the street the grip and die plays an important part in how cable cars work.

Summer Trip Ideas


Want to stay in the United States for vacation this summer? Want some activity on your trip? Check out these ideas...

Yosemite National Park is one of the must see parks as far as I'm concerned. Explore one of the unique parts...Mariposa Grove or the Giant Sequoias; Glacier Point for the best views; Yosemite Falls, the highest falls in North America; and Half Dome.


Key West, Florida, with its clear waters is a diving paradise for shipwrecks. If diving isn't quite your thing, snorkeling and parasailing might fit the bill.

Death Valley, CA, with its combination of sand dunes, canyons, and high peaks offers plenty of land to hike and explore. Check our Telescope Peak or Desolation Canyon.


Lake Tahoe in the summer offers more hiking, boating, and stunning views. Whatever you do and where ever you go...have fun.
