5 Kid-Friendly California Vacations

San Francisco

Here's the Deal

Funky, freewheeling San Francisco is perfect for new parents. Picture yourself pushing baby on a leisurely stroll, enjoying the shopping, food, parks, architecture, and people-watching.

What's for Kids

Our favorite spot for preschoolers is the Exploratorium, filled with interactive fun. Don't miss the sea lions sunning themselves at Pier 39 or the California Street cable car, the most gentle for kids.

A Place to Stay

Hotel Del Sol is as vibrant as the city itself. Kids get a beach ball and sunglasses to use at the pool; you can borrow teddy bears; and every summer Friday there's a BBQ.

For More Info

For the hotel call 877-433-5765 or visit thehoteldelsol.com For the city of San Francisco, call 888-782-9673 or visit sfvisitor.org.
