    Pier 39

    The sea lions are a smelly sight, but it's such a rare sight to see wildlife in the city. Your kids will love it too.

    AT&T Park

    206 reviews

    I love this stadium! Gorgeous views of the bay, wonderful food and fans! The hand tossed caramel popcorn on the club level is to die for! Go giants! p.s. Club level is the way to go! The view was great, there were shorter concession lines and fancier food options! My only complaint (minor) with the seats would be the lack ...

    San Francisco Zoo

    78 reviews

    When my daughter was young we went here at least once a week. The playground is one of the best in the city. The zoo is above average. The carousel and train are fun for kids. In recent years several upgrades have made it even better (Giraffe house). It is a very pretty zoo, nicely laid out and good for ...

    California Science Center

    52 reviews

    This is a great place to take the kids. They have a blast you actually learn a little something too. There are lots of hands on exhibits. There is also a couple of fast food restaurants if you get hungry because you can spend all day there easily.

    Dolores Park

    140 reviews

    One of the coolest places to hang in SF on a sunny day. Great views from the top of the hill. Good place to picnic or throw the frisbee. Also got a great playground for the kids. If you are lucky enough to show up when some sort of celebration/demonstration is going on here (as happens a lot) you are ...

    Knott's Berry Farm

    66 reviews

    A great theme park for teenagers and adults. There are a few large roller coasters and good old theme park shopping. They are known for their jams and the delicious funnel cakes. Also a great place to visit during the holidays, especially for "Knotts Scary Farm" during the Halloween season.

    The Getty Center

    Great views over Los Angeles and the pacific ocean. Amazing architecture, great exhibits, and wonderful gardens. Check out their concerts. And another nice thing: you only pay for parking, the rest is free.

    There are many beaches on the San Diego coast and La Jolla Shores is one of them that you probably shouldn't miss. It's a beautiful beach -but very crowded during the summer!

    I really like Northstar as a ski resort. It is perfect for the family, as the large bowl of long runs, most suited for the beginner and intermediate skier, is designed to bring every one back down toward the lodges or village, with all the amenities you need to take a break, lunch, or call it a day. I have ...

    Natural Bridges State Beach

    55 reviews

    Natural bridges, sand, waves, tide pools and butterflies... so much to enjoy. Park on Deleware Avenue and walk in to avoid paying for parking... unless you can afford parking in which case please pay as our park system needs the money.

    Coit Tower

    121 reviews

    For some reason I had never bothered to come up to Coit tower until recently, and it totally blew my socks off. The tower itself is not much to see - but it offers some of the best views of San Francisco. You get 360 degree panoramic views of the city - on a clear day you can see the ...

    Musée Mécanique

    44 reviews

    From hand-cranked wooden games dating back to the 1890s to the video arcade version of Star Wars from the 1980s, the Musee Mecanique in busy Fisherman's Wharf is a child's dream, no matter his or her age. In a warehouse along the waterfront, the 100+ video and carnival games date back a century and are not only fascinating to play ...
