    Golden Gate Bridge

    843 reviews

    Just seeing this bridge sets a tone for all the beautifully crafted bridges over the World. It is a beautiful costly bridge to cost every day but I love it. I like to use it as a wallpaper from time to time but I wish one day I would take a nice picture of it when it isn't foggy in ...

    San Diego Zoo

    474 reviews

    Go. You will not be disappointed. And yes, the ticket price is high, but 100% worth it. If you plan to go for more than one day (with the size of this Zoo, you may wish to!), consider supporting the San Diego Zoo by becoming a Member of the Zoological Society of San Diego. Good cause + unlimited entry for ...

    This is a MUST bring your kids place! Let your kids learn about the sea creatures and let them see how they are and what they are. I thank my parents for bringing me here when I was a kid.

    Old Town

    257 reviews

    I thought Old Town was going to be the oldest part of town but it turns out it's kind of a historically preserved, tourist attraction. The entire thing is set up like the old wild west/traditional Mexico feeling. While your there you have to stop for some of the Mexican food and I recommend grabbing a margarita while your at ...

    Lombard Street

    208 reviews

    If you are in San Francisco you need to drive down Lombard Street. It's pretty cool and is a big hit with kids. I've always been too chicken to drive down it myself so I'm always in the passenger seat squealing the whole way down. There's always lots of traffic on the street so you won't be going fast, so ...

    This is a great destination all year round. Enjoy ice skating in the winter when the square is decorated for the holidays. During the summer, this is a great place to catch some rays.

    Want to go swim or tan at the beach? Go to Hermosa or Manhattan. Looking for photo opportunities at the beach? Go to Venice. Came here for the rides? Go to Six Flags. We strolled through here on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon to find the pier mostly deserted and the mini amusement park in need of a face-lift. It is ...

    Disney's California Adventure

    160 reviews

    Who knew California Adventure had a winery? It may be a boutique vineyard, but the grapes get plenty of sun year-round, so Moscatos and Rieslings are all the rage here. Kind of a cool place for the adults to unwind. You know, after tapping into their kid side with Mickey Mouse.

    La Jolla Cove

    148 reviews

    I've never considered how unique and spectacular it is to have such a gathering of seals accessible for all to see! This cove is nestled between gorgeous cliffs which have tide pools, loud crashing waves, and blue water as far as the eye can see. I especially love sitting on the cliffs mid to late afternoons and enjoying the calmness ...
