Spring break ushers in the summer for the Bay Area. Instead of the party spots, families can enjoy mini spring break vacations at places in and around San Francisco. Everything seems to come to life at this time of year, so we have selected a “Life” themed assortment of family-friendly day trips with something for everyone. Spending time outdoors with hands-on activities is sure to be fun for all.
About an hour north of San Francisco, just off Route 1, Tomales Bay State Park has a range of activities for kids and adults as well. Hearts Desire Beach is one of three visitor destinations in Tomales Bay and is famous for it’s low-wake, kid-friendly waters teeming with tidal biology. The park includes nature trails, kayaking, and a variety of outdoor activities.
In downtown San Francisco, the newly updated Randall Museum is open for business. Geared more towards the younger set, Randall is nestled inside a 16-acre park and features a range of exhibits, including:
· Live Animal Exhibit
· Geology and Seismic Activity
As you travel to these locations, look for other exciting places along the way, such as California’s Great America theme park, or the beautiful California State Parks scattered around the region. The important thing is to get out of the house and experience some of what the area has to offer.
