The travel fun is about to end for a while as I'm entering trimester three. San Francisco is one of the last two trips on the horizon.

We hit the jackpot with weather--high 70's and sunny. That meant lots of outdoor exploration. These are my can't miss picks (sorry nothing indoors this time around!):

  • Cable Car Rides: $11 for an all day pass ($5 for a ride). Try to leave the stroller at the hotel as there is no space on board.
  • We love the new Koret Children's Quarter in the Golden Gate Park. Newly opened in summer 2007, the playground is packed with clean sand and lots of things to climb. We were there for two hours and never got bored. Toilets are nearby (and reasonably clean), but the carousel is only open on Fri., Sat., and Sun. after Labor Day--plan accordingly.
  • Lunch at the Ferry Building. Take the Cable Car Down California to the Ferry Building. Indoors there's a ton of spots for lunch--from Thai to Italian to Sushi. We picked up lunch at the Slanted Door's takeout (the outdoor) and made a picnic on a bench over looking the Bay Bridge. Don't miss the spring rolls!
