WANDERLUST WITH KIDS ---> San Francisco. PART 1~

W≜NDER LUST~ San Francisco


Welcome to San Francisco... a city that stole my heart within minutes of my arrival.  It is lively, it is beautiful, it is everything wonderful for a family vacation.  My mom recently moved to California and as much as I miss having her nearby, I couldn't be happier to have another reason to visit Cali over and over again. ;)  I have always been a California girl at heart.  When I was 17 I was accepted to Humboldt State University's music program and though I ended up having a wonderful college experience at the University of Tennessee, I never fully let go of my California dreams.  I've made many trips to the west coast over the years... living in Yosemite National Park for a summer, staying in surf hostels (and sometimes my car) in Huntington Beach, driving cross country from Knoxville to Fresno, hanging out on the Hollywood strip with my hubby, and most recently to visit my mom at her new home on the Pacific coast.  I think I was always destined to be a California girl and hopefully in a few years, our family will be able to realize that dream and relocate to the west coast as well.  I have always wanted to raise my kids in California, but for now we will just have to be satisfied with traveling there... a lot. =-)

SO what to do in San Fran with the family???  Here are my FAVORITE SPOTS ...
