Day Trip to San Francisco!

Now that the kids are on spring break, or will be soon, its time to travel and see the sights!  If you are taking a staycation, like my family is, a few day trips will allow you to travel while you still get to sleep in your own beds.  San Francisco, Berkeley, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, Big Basin, ... we are so fortunate to live so close to so many wonderful locales!  Here is a day trip of fun places to visit in San Francisco with your family.  

Angel Island State Park  Ride a ferry there, take a hike and picnic
Balclutha  See a British ship that was launched in 1886 
Bike at Golden Gate Park on a Sunday   The Park closes the main entrance to cars at JFK Drive 
Bi Rite Creamery  I've been told its THE place to get ice cream in the city! 
Cable Cars  What trip to SF would be complete without a ride on a cable car? 
California Academy of Sciences  In Golden Gate Park
Coit Tower   Enjoy the view and the murals in this 210 foot tall building
Dim Sum on Clement Street  Try Good Luck or Wing Lee Bakery for good Chinese dim sum!
