Things to do in San Francisco - Muni Heritage Weekend (Sept. 7 & 8, 2019) #UrbanTrekUSATips

This #UrbanTrekUSATips by Urban Trek USA San Francisco walking & city tours providing the best immersive San Francisco tour experience. Why just simply visit when you can experience it. Get off the tour bus, urban trek with us!

This weekend, September 7 & 8, 2019, is the annual Muni Heritage Weekend from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. This can be fun especially for those who appreciate vintage public transportation. This year will be extra special because the oldest cable car (#19) built in 1883 - that has not been in operation since 1942 - will be running for the first time along the California cable car track since its long hiatus. (Note: To read an article about cable car 19, click here.)

The other neat vintage ones to check out are the open top boat tram from Blackpool (UK), the one from Melbourne (Australia), the Market Street Railway "dinky"streetcar (#578) built in 1896 and Muni's very first streetcar (circa 1912).

Some of the vintage motor coaches will provide free trips around sections of The City from where the San Francisco Railway Museum is located. For more details about this event, click here to the event website.
