Enjoying a grand family vacation in San Francisco

13 Mar

I grew up in the U.S.  I’ve been to California on a number of occasions, as a kid and an adult, but I’ve never been to the famed San Francisco.  Maybe one day….  Since I am clearly not qualified to write about San Francisco, please enjoy this weeks guest post instead:

San Francisco is a fantastic destination to have a family vacation whether you’re travelling with toddlers or teens. There are so many things to do in this wonderful city: you can check out its wonderful tourist attractions, enjoy its culinary delights, and so much more! Simply put, boredom is the least of your concerns if ever your San Francisco trip pushes through because there are so many things to do in this Bay Area City and you’ll definitely be spoilt for choice.

Bear in mind however that there is one place that you shouldn’t miss on your trip. It’s a magical marine conservation centre called the Aquarium the Bay and since Aquarium of the Bay Tickets can be easily purchased online, you shouldn’t miss this world-class attraction during your San Francisco family holiday.

Situated at Pier 39 in San Francisco, you and your kids will definitely will experience a couple of jaw-dropping moments while touring its vicinity.

Aquarium of the Bay is home to close to 20,000 marine animals like the seven-gill sharks, giant pacific octopi, moon jellyfish, and a myriad of other sea creatures, all housed in 300 feet of aquarium tunnels that hold close to 700,000 gallons of sea water. It is open all year long and is flocked countless national and international visitors.


Your Aquarium of the Bay tour will be divided into three sub-tours: Under the Bay, Touch the Bay, and Discover the Bay. Their primary objective is to educate visitors like you about the vibrant sea life and inspire each and everyone to help conserve marine in every little way possible.

If you want a more exciting family vacation, you can partake in the Aquarium of the Bay’s “Feed the Sharks Tour.” By paying a little extra, you can enjoy a 75-minute tour where you’ll have a bucket of seafood that you can use to feed the sharks, sting rays, seals, and other aquatic animals. Take note however that your kids must be aged 8 and above so that they can participate in the said tour.


While there are a so many of other tourist destinations s in San Francisco, the Aquarium by the Bay should be on top of your list. Its facilities and attractions are simply world-class and you and your kids will definitely love your stay in this one of kind marine conservatory.

Need more proof? In its fifteen-year history, the Aquarium of the Bay has been visited by close to seven million guests and it’s about time to include your name on the list.
