Places to Go with Small Kids in the San Francisco Bay Area

Updated on December 16, 2013

Fun Places to Take Little Ones

The Bay Area is a great place to live, especially with young kids. This lense describes the places me and my little ones like to go and the things we enjoy doing. Hope you find this useful.

Unless otherwise specifically stated, each one of the recommendations in this lense is based on my personal experience or on the recommendation of a personal friend.

Do you know of a fun place to go that I have missed? Do you and your kids have a favorite activity that others should know about? If so, please contact me!

Featured Activities

Here are a few featured activities of the dozens that are listed on this lens:

  1. Star Wars Exhibit at the Tech Museum - the always awesome Tech Museum in downtown San Jose features a Star Wars exhibit from Oct 19, 2013 to Feb 23, 2014. If your kids love Star Wars as much as mine, check it out. Tickets range from $12 (kids) to $27 ("Jedi Package").
  2. Visit the New Exploratorium - The Exploratorium reopened in April in its new and superb home on Pier 15. This hands-on museum features over 600 science and technology exhibits, many of them brand new. Just as important, the Exploratorium now features a decent (if a little expensive) restaurant. If you can get there using public transportation you'll save a bundle on parking ($5 per hour across the street).
  3. Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Moss Beach - It's summer, what better time to visit this fantastic attraction? This gorgeous beach offers tide pools full of sea urchins, anemones, starfish, crabs and many other creatures. When we visited, there was also a group of seals on the beach. Helpful volunteers show visitors around on weekends. My kids loved the place. Be sure to visit at or close to low tide. As of mid August 2012, there was a colony of Harbor Seals on the beach. This restricts access to part of the beach but is also an interesting viewing opportunity.



This is a list of fun things to do, and places to go that don't typically require buying tickets or paying a large entrance fee.

  1. Watch a Movie at the Drive-In - Did you know that there were still drive-in movie theaters in California? I sure didn't until a friend told me about it recently. We haven't been yet, but we're going to take the entire family there pretty soon. The cost also seems very affordable. One of my personal favorite things to do when I was a kid. What an adventure!
  2. Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Moss Beach - This gorgeous beach offers tide pools full of sea urchins, anemones, starfish, crabs and many other creatures. When we visited, there was also a group of seals on the beach. Helpful volunteers show visitors around on weekends. My kids loved the place. Be sure to visit at or close to low tide.
  3. Flying a kite in Shoreline Park - there's a special kite flying area and on windy afternoons, when the weather is nice there are dozens of kites in the air. For you East Bay folks, the Berkeley Marina is also a great place to do some kite flying.
  4. A day at the beach in Half Moon Bay - a few weeks ago on a sunny winter day, we spent half a day at the beach in Half Moon Bay. It's amazing how much fun kids can have playing in the sand and chasing seagulls.
  5. An afternoon at Chuck E. Cheese - yeah, I know, it's cheesy, but my three year old loves it, it costs almost nothing and getting a prize at the end really makes it easy to go home when you're done. Before you go, get Chucky E. Cheese coupons and save a few more bucks.
  6. A visit to the library - going to the library with the little ones to hear some new stories is fun. Explaining that shouting in the library is a no-no is harder...
  7. Riding the train - my four year old loves the train and riding it, even for a couple of stops is a treat. Especially if he gets to ride in the top floor. We typically take Caltrain, but BART works just as well.
  8. Visiting the sea lions at Pier 39 - kids love them, just make sure it's the right time of the year. While you are there, Pier 39 also has a great old fashioned carousel, and some free shows for kids. It's way touristy though.
  9. A Stop at the Local Fire Station - every kid on the planet gets excited at the sight of a fire truck. Most fire stations have times when they are open to the public and many will let you visit even when there is no special event if you ask nicely.
  10. Ride a Cable-Car in San-Francisco - it's the most touristy thing to do in the city, but kids love it, especially if you get them a good spot to sit.
  11. Hidden Villa in Los Altos - all it take is a $5 parking permit and you can spend the day doing fun, non-strenuous hikes under shady trees, visit some farm animals and play around a really nice vegetable garden. Nice way to spend the afternoon.
  12. Explore Tide Pools at Bean Hollow State Beach - This one is a real gem, where your little ones can hunt for starfish, see hermit crabs and watch seals playing in the surf. Admission is free, and the beach is about 15 minutes south of Half Moon Bay. Make sure to visit when the tide is on its way out.
  13. Go Berry Picking - Located in mid peninsula, Webb Ranch let's you pick your own berries a few times a year. Obviously, this activity is seasonal, so check the website!
  14. The Jungle in San Jose - imagine a huge indoor play structure where your kids can run around and burn off energy, while you can sit and chat with your friends, now add an arcade, and that's what the Jungle offers. Similar to Chuck-E-Cheese with a few differences: unlike Chuck-E-Cheese, where admission is free, admission to The Jungle can cost up to $9 per child (depending on child age and day of the week), however, we found The Jungle to be cleaner, much better maintained, and much less crowded. If you want to pick one, I would go with The Jungle.
  15. Free Planetarium Shows at the College of San Mateo - on the second Friday of every month, you can catch a free planetarium show at the college of San Mateo. There are two shows each one seating 95 viewers and tickets are given on a first come, first served basis. Did I mention, "Free"? I've seen this show and it's a good one.
  16. Fort Point by the Golden Gate Bridge - located right underneath the Golden Gate, and allowing free entrance, Fort Point is an interesting place for the young ones to visit. Mine loved seeing the old cannons, visit the soldiers' barracks and climbing the roof to watch the ships go by and stand right under the Golden Gate Bridge.

Toys for Cold Winter Weekends

It's summer time... the perfect opportunity to get the little ones into the yard or the park to play. Below are some best selling outdoor Amazon toy ideas:



The zoo is always a fun place to go with little ones, and in the Bay Area we have some excellent zoos and parks.

Educational Fun at Home

Leapfrog has a range of high quality, educational toys for many age groups. Our house is full of them and all are highly recommended.



I love taking my little ones to the Museum. They love it, they learn and it's MUCH better than hanging out in front of the TV...

      For Children's Discovery Museum, below age 2 yrs get free admission :) and you can actually print a free Museum pass with a Discover and Go Library pass. You can also get 25% off General Admission (youth or adult) with AAA membership ;-) Learned it from a site named baykidsplay - www.baykidsplay.com/san-francisco-childrens-creativity-museum2/

      Depending on their ages I would definitely take them to the Academy of Sciences. It is educational but also lots of fun. Not very cheap though! Although if you are planning on seeing a few different tourist attractions I would recommend the CityPass http://usafuncard.com. As a family of four we saved quite a lot of money. the zoo is also a favorite with the kids but then I guess it would be with all kids:)

      Morgan Hill Aquatic center is a great place during the summer. Less than $10 for adults & child admission. It is similar to Raging Water but on a much smaller scale. Food/drinks are reasonably priced. Outside food is not allowed but there are tables outside if you choose to bring your own. Both of my boys love this place(1 & 6 yrs old). Mostly geared towards kids under 12.

      Lovely lens! I've only been to San Francisco once but thought it was an incredible city. Loved the seals on Pier 39 and also the Aquarium (I think that was on Pier 39 too?) I think taking your children on the ferry from San Francisco to Sausalito would also be great fun, you get such fantastic views over the whole bay area.

      I have been to pixieland several times with my 3 yr old. She definitely has tons of fun. The rides range from 1-3 tix. Buying the 30 pack is your best bet if you're with one little one bc parents have to have tickets to ride w the kids. The rides are not as fancy as carnival rides and there are only about 6 all together. It's a pretty small place but little kids will enjoy themselves.

      A place I would recommend for the real little ones is scientopia in napa. Has a room w tiny ball pit and foam toys for 3 and under only. There's also another room with a train track set, costumes, puppet theater and other small attractions. It reminds me of a garage with a bunch of different activities for kids, like something anyone could put together, but it's great for rainy days and the young kids.

      Bookmarked also. would like to also suggest a play place - Superfranks in Pleasanton. $7 per child and a great place to catch up with a fellow parent or get some work done while the kids play. Excellent for play dates on a rainy day. Can get a bit busy in the mornings. They also have a cafe, with somewhat good food. great for the 0-5 age range.

      Lori -

      Thanks for visiting!

      13 mo is pretty young, and I guess most of the places on this lens are meant for slightly older kids. When our kids were that age they really enjoyed going to the zoo. Happy Hollow was another good one. Chuck E. Cheese also has some rides that are meant for that age group - but check your specific location for a list of rides.

    • profile image

      anonymous 7 years ago

      Very helpful, thanks. One comment: I'm looking for places to take my 13 mo old son. Many places are geared towards toddlers (2-4) that might be a touch beyond what my son can handle right now. Which places are good for a very young toddler? He's my first, so I barely know what to look for.Thanks much!

      Hi, thanks for the website, great collection of activities. What brought me here is trying to find a kite show in the Bay Area (found the Berkeley one) to entertain our nieces (age 6 twins) and nephew (age 9).

      A couple of activities that may be interesting:

      #1: the Lawrence Hall of Science planetarium at UC Berkeley has a few shows (http://www.lawrencehallofscience.org/visit/planeta...

      #2: The Valley Life Sciences Building (marked VLSB on the campus maps) of the UC Berkeley campus has a giant size dinosaur skeleton in the middle of the staircase besides other ancient skeletons - pretty cool and the building is accessible till late evening, I believe weekends, too (as it houses a library)

      #3: pottery studios all over the Bay - kids seem to love it! Brushstrokes Studio is in Berkeley - we went there to have a custom-made mug made for our boss who was leaving, and a bunch of kids were having fun there. Another one is Kids 'n' Clay, also in Berkeley, but again, they are probably all over the Bay Area

      http://www.brushstrokestudio.com/visit.htm

      http://www.kidsnclay.com/

      #4: train shows - the 3 kids above go to a train show with the grandparents every year; unfortunately I don't know where or when but again, there are probably a few around the Bay

      I think your site could list more creative places like Habitot Children's Museum in Berkeley, Mocha in Oakland, oh by the way, Tilden also has Little Farm where you can feed the animals. Crosstown Coffeehouse in Alameda has a live kids singalong every Friday. But these are mostly toddler/preschooler activities. Your list is awesome for my older guy! Thanks for compiling this list.

      For Trains there is Roaring Camp up in Felton. They offer trips through the redwoods or down to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, which is also another kid friendly place. Checked out Happy Hollow and they are closed until Fall 2009
