3 days in San Francisco, CA – family friendly locations and sights, perfect for young children.
3 days in San Francisco – it’s not nearly enough to even scratch the surface of this town. And while our list was long, and we definitely didn’t scratch everything off of it, we did manage to make our way around the city. Even at our leisurely pace, we managed to see and do quite a bit. Here is how we spent our 3 days in San Francisco.
*walk along the waterfront, discovering new things at each pier.
*visit Ghirardelli Square.
*walk through Fisherman’s Wharf.
*go to Pier 39 and see the sea lions and ride the carousel.
*get your feet wet in the bay.
*take a bus tour through the city, learning about the history of San Francisco, about the architecture, and about the food. (I highly recommend the City Sightseeing buses and doing the hop on – hop off.)
*go to Crissy Field for great views of the Golden Gate Bridge (even when it’s cold and foggy). This is a great spot to run and get your feet in the sand, as well. This was probably the highlight of San Francisco for the kids.
*go to the Ferry Building to pick up lots of fresh and delicious foods.
*drive on the Golden Gate Bridge.
*see the Painted Ladies (whatever happened to predictability? The milkman, the paperboy, the evening tv. #fullhouse)
*take in a baseball game. You can see the Giants and the A’s – we went for the Giants!
There are about a million and a half other things you can do in San Francisco, and while I felt like I needed to see it all while we were there, looking back, I think we did a pretty good job and didn’t kill ourselves trying to get too much in. I think we did pretty good for taking it fairly easy!
Can’t wait for the next time!
