Visiting San Francisco with kids is even better than visiting alone. This cosmopolitan city, set within a seven-mile wide peninsula in northern California, has mild weather, a waterfront setting and heaps of cultural activities, making it ideal for family vacations.

San Francisco has so many things to do that you could easily spend several days or even a week exploring the city and surroundings with your family. Travel is easy, and there are abundant attractions which will interest young and old alike. Your best bet for a family vacation in San Francisco, however, is to stick to the city's western side for at least a day or two.

By the way, note that San Francisco is abbreviated to San Fran, never "Frisco" -- it's a dead giveaway that you're a tourist!
