Visiting San Francisco with Kids

Visiting San Francisco with kids or a romantic escape, my hotel & museum picks.

Having lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for almost my entire life, I am often asked about the best things to see and do in “the city.”  My answers to people visiting San Francisco depends on if this is a romantic weekend escape; a girlfriend getaway, a family vacation with kids or perhaps you are interested in where to eat cheap in San Francisco.

San Francisco is not an inexpensive city to live or vacation, yet it is one of my favorite cities. Once you book a flight to San Francisco, you’ll need to find a place to stay. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know that I review luxury hotel and resort properties. In fact, I just wrote an Insider’s Guide to San Francisco for a Canadian travel search engine.  Below are some of the places I recommended:

Best Things to See and Do in San Francisco

There’s more to San Francisco than a boat ride to Alcatraz, eating dungeness crab at Fisherman’s Wharf, throwing tortillas in the air and watching runners in crazy costumes at Bay to Breakers or seeing every color of the rainbow at the Gay Pride Parade – although these are all fun things to do in San Francisco.

Do you have a favorite hotel in San Francisco? What are your favorite things to do with or without children in San Francisco?
