Share this post :

Summer has arrived and your kids are ready for a vacation. San Francisco has many fun experiences for families to enjoy. We’ve got the perfect ride for your family, no matter what size family you have. Let’s get started with the most iconic of all landmarks in California, The Golden Bridge.

The Golden Gate Bridge

The striking orange bridge is a symbol of San Francisco and California. It is also synonymous with the United States. We’ll drive you across the 4,200 foot suspension bridge. The historic bridge was completed in 1937 after four years of construction. The east side offers stunning views of the city and boats in the bay while the west side provides panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. 

California Academy of Sciences

With nearly 40,000 animal residents, explore the one place in the city with an aquarium, planetarium, rainforest and natural history museum all under one roof! Explore hands on exhibits that feature Earth’s brilliant biodiversity. You can even book an overnight stay in the exhibit area with planetarium showings with late night snacks and breakfast the next morning!

Wine & Chocolates at Ghirardelli Square

Ghirardelli Square located in Fisherman’s Wharf offers quite the tasteful experience. This favorite worldwide chocolate brand is one you won’t forget. From decadent dark chocolate to caramel filled centers this chocolate will leave you feeling completely satisfied and full.

After you’ve sampled the finest chocolates, head over to The Cheese School on the opposite side of Ghirardelli Square. Grab a cheese board and a glass of wine and enjoy the beautiful views of the bay.

Walt Disney Family Museum

The Walt Disney Museum is dedicated to the life and creator of some of America’s best theme parks and the world’s most beloved animations. With perseverance and imagination and a few obstacles along the way and the

mouse that started it all, Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney created an empire. The Museum showcases his early cartoon drawings, movies, and models of Disneyland. If your children enjoy being creative and using their imagination, we highly suggest you visit The Children’s Creativity Museum. This hand’s-on environment allows your children to design their own clay motion animations, pretend to be a rockstar in a studio, or invent a new machine.
