San Francisco is the little big city by the bay, rich with history.

Many of the hotels listed above are well suited for families (although certain areas like the Tenderloin and Union Square are noisy), and offer amenities such as complimentary cribs, stowaway beds, and babysitting services. One standout is Omni San Francisco, where kids receive a backpack filled with games and goodies, including milk and cookies delivered to their room on the first evening.
I loved it and would love to go back there one day to explore the area further!
I spent 4 days in SF and visited Pier 39, Alcatraz, The Golden Gate Bridge, Lands End Trail, Bake Beach and I would even recommend going to The Cliffhouse restaurant next to Lands End Trail as it has amazing views our to shore, delicious food and great staff
I had an amazing time here! So much culture so close together! If you are planning a trip and need places to go, check out Chinatown, Japan town, pier 39, and little Italy! Best pizza place in the city is Tonys pizza in little Italy. Huge net York style for not a bad price. Also if you want a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge, go to Baker Beach for so great photos but be wary that this is a nude beach so if being children be prepared. The east side is walkable though it’s extremely hilly, make sure you are ready to do some hiking when you come.
San Fran is great! I’d recommend a cycle over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito! Union Square is great for shopping. You have to ride a tram from here to Fisherman’s Wharf!
