To learn about the role of the rail transit on this city's culture, hop in a San Francisco car rental and head to the Tour the Cable Car Museum. Established in 1974, this institution is a nonprofit organization located in an historic cable car barn. You'll see various components of these machines, including the massive winding wheels that run the cables and enormous engines. You will also find a viewing area in the lower level of the museum, where cable lines run through the building via an underground channel.
Spend an afternoon at Golden Gate Park
What would a trip to Fog City be without a day at one of its most renowned sites, Golden Gate Park, which attracts 13 million visitors annually. Step out of your San Francisco car rental to greet the fresh air and more than 1,000 acres of lush land filled with gardens, groves and lakes. There are also playgrounds for the kids to frolic in, sand dunes to traverse and a multitude of shady spots to relax and watch the people go by or lose yourself in a book. The park is also home to a system of walking trails that let you see the natural features and wildlife of the region. Don't forget to pack a meal for your visit - there are plenty of picnic areas throughout.
