The city of San Francisco lies in the northern region of California and is surrounded by the Pacific ocean and San Francisco Bay. The city is well known for the Golden Gate Bridge, year round smog amongst the buildings and surrounds and vibrant Victorian style housing. Alcatraz Island, a former notorious prison, is also located here and is a highly populated tourist destination. Not only can families enjoy the historic and cultural side of San Francisco, but many other attractions such as Walt Disney Family Museum, the Exploratorium, Pier 39, Children's Creativity Museum, Bay cruises, Chinatown, California Academy of Sciences and the lush Golden Gate Park. Whatever may be on the agenda for the day, the kids are sure to be kept busy and may even learn a thing or two in their travels!
