San Francisco Vacation with Kids

What’s better than a San Francisco vacation with kids? Short answer: nothing! This Bay Area city boasts an equal amount of outdoor and indoor activities for a wide range of children’s interests! On a warm and sunny day, stroll along Fishermen’s Wharf for the iconic sights and sounds of San Fran, including a chance to spot its beloved sea lions. Outdoor families will also love a trip to Lands’ End Trail, a series of beginner paths ideal for kid hikes. Or, head to Baker Beach to soak up the summer sun with a stunning backdrop overlooking the emblematic Golden Gate Bridge! Within Golden Gate Bridge Park, also visit Koret Playground to let kids blow off some steam for the day.

If you’re more of a botanical type of person, the Japanese Tea Garden is fantastic for a tranquil experience. Be sure to stay fueled with sweets from the famous Tartine Bakery while you’re at it! Kids with a sweet tooth will love any pastry, cookie, or bread served here. On rainy days, San Francisco also boasts indoor museum activities too, like the Exploratorium. If the sun’s out, though, definitely check out more landmarks in town, like Lombard Street or Ghirardelli Square for chocolate lovers. No matter when you take your San Francisco vacation with kids, the city will welcome you with open arms!
