Kid-Friendly San Francisco: Golden Gate Park


Golden Gate Park's Children's Playground

Before our recent trip up to San Francisco, I asked our Bay Area friend Lisa to come up with a few kid-friendly suggestions. She went beyond the call, giving us a great list of things to do. Some of them we were familiar with, but others were new to us:

:: Crissy Field

:: Palace of Fine Arts and Exploratorium

:: Chestnut Street playground/Moscone Recreation Center

:: Golden Gate (GG) Children’s Playground and Carousel

:: Yerba Buena Gardens Playground and Carousel

:: San Francisco Zoo

:: Pier 39. Sea lions and Aquarium of the Bay.

:: Cable Cars

If you want to venture just over the GG Bridge to Sausalito (5-10 minutes from Crissy Field):

:: The Bay Area Discovery Museum, Sausalito

:: If you do go over to the Bay Area Discovery Museum, you may also want to hop back in your car and then walk along the waterfront in “downtown” Sausalito, about 5-10 minutes away.

:: Another idea is to take a car ride through the pretty Marin Headlands and/or over to see Rodeo Beach

On the way to San Francisco from LA (or on the return), you may also want to check out:

:: Gilroy Gardens, in Gilroy

:: Lemos Farm, in Half Moon Bay
