Travel Magazine Says San Francisco Is One of the Most Kid-Friendly Cities in America

Posted By on Fri, Apr 4, 2014 at 1:46 PM

Well, this is news.

The much dog-friendlier city of San Francisco has been deemed one of the most kid-friendly places to take your children on vacation.

Basically, we adore children as long as they have their own parents and their hometown isn't San Francisco.

FamilyFun magazine announced its travel awards in this month's issue, naming San Francisco as the no. 10 spot for parents traveling with kids. If you don't believe us, here's a screen shot of the actual wording.

FamilyFun surveyed families traveling with kids ages 3 to 12. Over 2,000 respondents in four regions, including the West, Midwest, South, and Northeast, were asked to rate some 400 vacation spots in the six categories. For voting purposes, respondents provided feedback solely on regions in which they live.

Okay, so we don't have the Alamo, Disneyland, or even warm beaches, but apparently, American children are still wowed by our historic trolley cars, cartoon art museum, and Seward Street Slides.

And obviously, a daytrip to Ghirardelli Square has a certain cachet.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
