SFMOMA and Yerba Buena Gardens With Kids
This is a GREAT place to hang out in San Francisco! Yerba Buena is filled with places for kids to run around and the SFMOMA is my favorite art museum maybe ever. It just underwent a huge renovation. The art is arranged beautifully and the building is so pretty! Teenagers love this place because it's Insta-heaven. Hours: Fri-Tues 10-5, closed Wed. Cost: $25/adult, $19/10-24, under 18 free. They have select free days for anyone who brings kids, check their website for more info.
Across the street from SFMOMA there’s a great open area for the kids to burn off some steam. The Children’s Creativity Museum has a HUGE park that’s free and very clean. It’s kind of hidden behind the Moscone Center, but follow signs for The Children’s Creativity Museum and you’ll find it.
If you have an artist in the family, it might be worth it to go in the art-based Children’s Creativity Museum. Ages 2-12. Cost: $12.95/person, under 2 free. Hours: Wed-Sun 10-4, admission includes in and out privileges.
The Metreon is a good place to see an overpriced movie. We saw San Andreas there. Would not recommend. I didn’t sleep for a week due to nightmares about earthquakes!
While you’re in the area, make a detour to SF City Hall. This is a magnificent building that's free to poke your head inside. Then go Google SF City Hall weddings and do some drooling.
My favorite restaurant in the area is called The Grove (690 Mission St), but I also love me some Lemonade (781 Mission St).
