the SF muni boat tram



As I said in my previous post, we used public transit for all our transportation needs during our recent visit to San Francisco: buses, trams and rail.

But then again, it was San Francisco, so I wasn’t surprised to see some more unusual public transportation options such as this Boat Tram which trundles along Market St. Built for use on the Blackpool sea-front in England, it seems well suited to it’s adopted home. Of course, the “Nowhere in Particular” destination is pure Californian.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    Okay, I just spent several minutes trying to figure out how the tram got into the water before it dawned on me that of course it isn’t that kind of boat…haha. So interesting, I never knew such a thing existed!
