The Aquarium of the Bay is a popular option for those visiting San Francisco with kids. The aquarium is in the heart of Pier 39 and is easy to access from anywhere in the city. Your family will learn more about the plants and animals living in the San Francisco Bay. Other fun things to do at the aquarium include the hands-on lab and the 3-D movie theater.

Muir Woods is a breathtaking adventure. Coastal Redwood trees will surround your family and provide the perfect backdrop photos. There are more populated areas where you will find educational information about the trees or you can head off the beaten path for a longer hike in the woods.

The Children’s Creativity Museum is a hands-on adventure for kids of all ages. The Animation Studio allows kids 5 years and older to design their own clay characters and bring them to life on screen. Kids 3-6 will enjoy the Imagination Lab where they can imagine, create and share ideas with each other. The musically inclined children 3+ will also enjoy the Music Studio where they can mix the magic of music and dance together. It’s fun for everyone!

4. Chinatown

Experience the bright colors and fascinating facades of the largest Chinatown outside of Asia.
