National park tips: This New Mexico monument has the best guest register in the West


Tourists queue up in long lines to ride San Francisco's famous cable cars without realizing they can jump aboard another fun form of transportation: a historic trolley. The city's streetcars, nicknamed museums-in-motion, are vintage trolleys imported from around the world. Along with the cable cars, they form a steel triangle of tourist-friendly rails that deliver riders to Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, Chinatown, Coit Tower and other famous locales. Fare: $2 adults, 75 cents for youth and seniors. Info:
