Bay Area Fun: Three Popular Attractions

San Francisco might be the most well known visitor goal in this piece of the state, however would you say you were mindful that there are many energizing things for children to do in the Bay Area? Fun times are to be had at these three attractions. You’ll certainly need to take your children here when the end of the week moves by.

Oakland Zoo

The Oakland Zoo is regularly dominated by the San Francisco Zoo however this is unquestionably not a fascination you should miss, particularly if your little ones love creatures. The zoo takes after a huge stop more than whatever else; the shows are intended to take after the creatures’ common environments, which means they’re not kept in a correctional facility or enclosures. Rather, they wander aimlessly on the grounds, giving children an awesome perspective of the zoo’s critters and how they live. It will take a few hours just to see everything, so ensure you carry a stroller with you; if not, the zoo gives stroller rentals. Neighboring the zoo is a kids’ stop with rides outlined only for kids – little autos and fire trucks that go all around for babies, a vivid merry go round, turning mugs, a kiddie exciting ride, and planes that children can climb and around pushing a lever. The best ride, in any case, is the Outback Express Adventure Train that takes you around the zoo and its Australian show, where you can see emus and wallaroos wandering about uninhibitedly.

The Oakland Zoo is open every day from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Fairyland

Near the shore of Lake Merrit is the ten-acre Fairyland, a theme park where fairy tales and dreams come true. Since the 1950s, Fairyland has been a charming destination for children and their families. Their whimsical storybook theme will capture any child’s imagination, and their wide assortment of gentle rides, exciting puppet shows, and friendly animals will keep your little ones entertained all day long. Older children may be a bit too jaded for the park’s attractions and too big to join the rides, but if you have toddlers and young children, Fairyland is a great place to take them too.

Fairyland is open from 10 am to 5 pm every day. Park admission is only $8 per person, regardless of age (except for infants under the age 1, who can enter for free).

Adventure Playground

There’s a very good reason why the National Geographic included the Berkeley Marina’s Adventure Playground in its top ten lists of playgrounds. This unique outdoor facility is designed to stimulate the imagination of children age 7 and older with their child-designed forts and building activities. The concept of Adventure Playground came after World War II, when a playground designer noticed that children had the most fun when they built their own playgrounds using post-war rubble. At Adventure Playground, kids learn to work together as they build their own fort, ride through the air on a zipline, or enjoy the structures that other children built before them. It’s an amazing place for children to express their creativity and their destructive side, for they can take down any existing structures too!

Adventure Playground is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 am to 5 pm.
