Kids

San Francisco is known for many famous landmarks, like Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf and Alcatraz Island, all great opportunities to teach children about the beauty and history of the city. But what many don’t realize is the city is also full of kid-friendly attractions designed specifically with your little ones in mind.

 

If you are planning a family trip to the city, be sure to include some of these family favorites in your itinerary to ensure your little ones have the time of their lives.

 

Exploratorium

There is good reason Exploratorium was named one of the best spots for kids in the United States in 2014. With 600 exhibits specifically designed to be played with, touched and interacted with, Exploratorium teaches kids of all ages about subjects like genetics, foods and cooking, optical illusions and sound.

 

The Walt Disney Family Museum

Located in the Presidio, this fascinating museum offers an exploratory look at the life and works of one of the world’s most celebrated creators of all time. The museum showcases memorabilia and cherished family photos celebrating the life and times of a man who brought joy to generations of children. A miniature replica of Disneyland, activities for children, special film screenings and an on-site café serving Disney-themed treats make this the perfect place to spend a day together as a family.

 

Ride the Cable Cars

San Francisco’s cable cars are an institution. Not only are they one of the iconic symbols of the city, but they are also one of the most fun ways for kids to experience the city. Whether you hop on and off or take the ride across town all the way to Fisherman’s Wharf, riding cable cars is fun and creates great photo opportunities.

 

Parks and Playgrounds

San Francisco may be a metropolitan city, but it is full of parks, playgrounds and open spaces for kids to get some fresh air and play time. From the Presidio Tunnel Tops with great views of the Golden Gate Bridge to the Seward Street Slides, where kids can hop on a piece of cardboard and slide down concrete slides designed by a 14-year-old, the parks of San Francisco are as unique and entertaining as the city itself.
