San Francisco Itinerary: Elementary School Aged Kids

San Francisco Itinerary: Elementary School Aged Kids

This itinerary will work well for elementary school aged kids (5-11). This age of children is awesome to travel with. They are curious, yet they also need a bit slower pace than adults or teens. Though they claim they are too old for parks, they do need space to run around between sightseeing. A morning activity, afternoon activity and evening activity work well, though feel free to quit early or take a break if everyone is tired. Some days have three activities and some only two. Don’t rush! Take time to hang out in each location.

For other ages, see our itinerary for babies and toddlers (under 5) and teens/adults (12-18). Also make sure to check out our San Francisco With Kids: What to Know Before You Go to see if any activities require advance booking. Our Arrival in San Francisco post will cover information on any metro passes you may need to get.
