San Francisco

San Francisco is a wonderful adventure, and the city is Travel For Kids’ own "backyard." Just a few of our favorite things to do with kids in San Francisco are take the ferry to Sausalito (best deal for a bay cruise), walk over the Golden Gate Bridge, fly a kite at Crissy Field, step into new worlds at the Exploratorium, visit a rainforest at California Academy of Sciences, see how fortune cookies are made, and sample ice cream all over the city.

Tip: San Francisco is famous for its cable cars, but it also has historic streetcars, the F line. From the city center, pick up the streetcars on Market Street, ride down Market to the Ferry Building, along the Embarcadero to Fisherman's Wharf.
