Mission Dolores | kids travel, kids activities
Mission Dolores
Dolores at 16th Street,
San Francisco,
"Good for older kids"
A good place to go if your kid is studying California history. It might seem an odd place to go, but the Mission Dolores was a huge part of the expansion of California. There is also a cemetery where you can do rubbings of gravestones. A very interesting place for history buffs.

"Fun for all ages"
This is a fun place to go for a respite. There is a lot to do. There is a movie theater, game room, and lots of restaurants. In the lobby, there are interactive games the kids can play for free. Plus, there is a little park and fountain outdoors. Sometimes, there are even special exhibits. They have a website which is good to check out current goings on. The movie theater is very nice and kid friendly - exits are monitored by employees. The food choices for the movie theater are also very good. Check it out!

San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf Hostel  | kids travel, kids activities
San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf Hostel
Fort Mason, Building 240 ,
San Francisco, California
I have never stayed here. However, I have spoken with people who have - and they had kids. They found the place to be very well run. The area is beautiful. You will have an unobstructed view. A friend of mine lived here when it was army housing - the view is just magnificent. The place is now run by the park service and they take it very seriously. There is lots to do near-by and transportation is very convenient. At least check it out as an option.

"Not the nicest neighborhood"
We stayed here over Christmas 2007, in a pool view room. The rooms are like small apartments - very spacious. Everything is run down, but efficient. The pool is beautiful - they had it all lit up for the holidays. Second floor rooms have nice balconies. There is a free breakfast which is very good - includes toast, bagles, and make your own waffles. It was hearty and really a nice touch. The staff here is very nice, too. Parking is very secure. I would stay here again - although I wish it was updated and in a little bit safer neighborhood.

EPCOT - Disney
Epcot Center Drive,
Lake Buena Vista,
Florida 32830
"Good food, good fun"
Epcot offers something for everyone. It has two sides - a science-based side and a world geography based side. The world geography is made up of many different pavilions - for sponsoring countries around the globe. Each country represented has contributed to their pavilion and many of the workers are from the host country. You can travel from Norway to Mexico! There are also many great restaurants in the World Showcase.
The science section has some fun rides. Don't miss Spaceship Earth, Innoventions, Test Track, and Universe of Energy (among others!).
Your kids will learn a lot and have fun! But, be prepared to walk. Epcot is massive. Plan on at least two days there. Bring or rent the stroller!
