9. Kidding Around

While San Francisco’s reputation as an adult playground is well deserved, it still holds enormous appeal for small fry. Thanks to a young-at-heart population, The City abounds with places tailor-made for a family vacation, too. Golden Gate Park is an oasis for outdoor enthusiasts and one full day rarely suffices to exhaust all the opportunities the park offers. Its 1,000+ acres encompass meadows, lakes, rose gardens, an arboretum, a children’s playground and the de Young Museum. Nominal admission fees are charged at the Japanese Tea Garden and the carousel.

The San Francisco Zoo is a home to more than 1,000 animals and birds and downtown the rooftop at Moscone Center is endowed with an interactive museum, a carousel, bowling alley and ice skating rink. Located in the Palace of Fine Arts, The Exploratorium – Museum of Science, Art and Human Perception entertains the brain with more than 650 hand-on exhibits. And for a full day of escapism head for Six Flags Discovery Kingdom or Paramount’s Great America.

10. Away … but not Far.

Headquarters of a vast vacation land, San Francisco is within easy driving distance of the high Sierra resorts of Lake Tahoe and Yosemite; the scenic Monterey-Carmel Peninsula; California’s great wine bin in Napa and Sonoma; Marin County and Sausalito, and the spectacular Mendocino Coast. Visit the East Bay where Oakland’s Jack London Square beckons. San Mateo County offers miles of unspoiled coastline and historic sites.
