Are you planning a trip to San Francisco with the family? Of course you know it’s a great city with a lot going on, but finding those activities that perfectly suit every member of your family can be tough, especially if you have kids of different ages. What the tiny ones enjoy, the older ones don’t want to do. Then there are those activities that are interesting for the adults but the younger ones just aren’t old enough to make the most of it. But don’t worry, San Francisco has so much offer, with just a little research you can find plenty of great family-friendly activities that you will all love, so start your planning with our suggestions for some brilliant days out San Francisco style!
Visit the Bay Area Discovery Museum
This museum is aimed at children, but adults will also find plenty to entertain them. The focus of the museum is on hands-on exhibits, it’s the perfect way to learn and discover. The museum is across the Golden Gate Bridge, so you’ll have the thrill of crossing the bridge too! On your visit, take time to hang out at Lookout Cove, this is a huge outdoor area of the museum, packed with wonders to explore such as caves, tide pools and shipwrecks!
Take a segway tour
The absolutely most fun way to get around and explore the city is on a segway. Segways are surprisingly easy to get to grips with, and you’ll be given full instructions before you set off on your tour. With a segway, you gain access to areas where bus tours cannot go. You can stop and admire the views and take some photos, then you can glide off to your next destination! Why walk when you can segway?
Burn off energy at House of Air
If the weather takes a turn for the worse, but the kids are feeling active, a trip to House of Air will certainly leave them tired by the end of the day. House of Air is a massive trampoline park, built inside an old airplane hanger.
See the view from Coit Tower
This 210 foot tall tower offers amazing 360 degree views of the city that will take your breath away. Luckily there’s no need to climb the stairs, the lift will take you right up to the top, when you step out, prepare to be amazed by those views.
Ride the Cable Cars
Holidays are all about making memories, and so a trip on the cable cars is just one of those things you have to do! It’s something fun the whole family can do, and you can learn more about how they work with a visit to the Cable Car Museum on Nob Hill. The museum is free entry so that should help keep the holiday spending down!
Fun for everyone at the Julius Kahn Playground
This playground offers the best of both worlds. The surroundings are lovely and there’s some beautiful views of Mount Tamalpais and the Golden Gate Bridge, so you can relax and take in the views while the kids explore the climbing frames and interactive wet sand play sculptures.
