First Signficant Trip Since Having Children -- Seeking Advice in San Francisco

Jump to last reply

I used to use these boards frequently when my wife and I were traveling as a couple. Since having childre, with the exception of the travel to visit family and the occasional road trip, our wanderlust has been limited.

I am excited as we're finally ready to dive in and ready to start exploring the world again with our children in tow -- two boys (9 years and 7 years old) and a girl (4 years old). I should add they are fairly mature and well behaved kids for their ages (thankfully!).

We will be there arriving on a Tuesday mid morning and leaving first thing the following Tuesday in mid-March to coincide with Spring Break.

As it's been a long time since I've been to SF and never with kids, can you please provide some suggestions and ideas to consider to create an itinerary for that time period? We're the kind that like to take it slow and leisurely and not necessarily try to pack everything in all at once or in a rush just because it's on a travel list -- this is probably a given when traveling with small kids anyway, but just thought that might be helpful for you when you provide feedback.

Any recommendations on a place to stay -- less about the actual hotel -- and more about what area would be helpful as well.

We don't plan to rent a car unless we decide to go to Yosemite. Again nothing is set or planned at this point other than our inbound and outbound air travel.

Thanks in advance to the great community that is Fodors and I'm excited to be back!

P.S. I'm particularly excited about this because my wife nor kids even know I have this planned. It's a long time coming and it's not a good thing when my 9 year old asks me when we can visit some places :-(
