Cable car

"Where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars"

One of our all-time favorite crooners, Tony Bennett, musically recommended San Francisco as the ultimate destination in his soaring song. Although you don't have to lose your heart in the lovely city by the bay, you can lose your way while strolling along fogged-in Union Square after dark. Just kidding.

Golden Gate Park is where summer ends and fall begins in this fabulous city, and if you're in town at the right time of year, you don't want to miss it when its tree leaves turn from green to all shades of gold. If you were a wandering member of the Hippie generation, you may want to go back to the Mecca of that era, Haight-Ashbury, and then enjoy the wonderful cafes on Fisherman's Wharf or bark with the hordes of seal lions that rest below the Pier 39 tourist trap.
