Five Free (or almost free) Things to Do and See in San Francisco for Families

Category: San Francisco   Published by

San Francisco is possibly one of the most photographed cities in the country. The beautiful morning fog and rays of sunshine that cascade over the city all year long are certainly photographer-worthy. What’s more, the city is a highly popular tourist hotspot. Families can visit the city without having to worry about breaking the bank and still enjoy some of the ‘city by the bay’s’ main attractions!

  • The Golden Gate Bridge. No, it is not the oldest, longest or even first of its kind when it comes to suspension bridges. And yet the Golden Gate continues to be the most popular suspension bridge on planet earth. It has been photographed thousands of times by professionals and millions of times by tourists. It is a beautiful creation and epitomizes the California theme song, “open up that golden gate.” You can drive over the bridge for free and view the beautiful waters of the harbor. Once you reach the side that overlooks the San Francisco skyline, you can stop at a lookout point and enjoy the view. You’ll also get a great view of Alcatraz Island.
  • Ferry Building Marketplace. Looking for a place to enjoy the local culture but avoid paying too high of prices for the experience? The Ferry Building Marketplace is basically an emporium, or a flea market, full of amazing vending that comes both in the form of souvenirs, food and other goods. It is a wonderful entertainment facility and will provide you with a little farmer’s market aura as well. Take home some California fruit with you! You can also find cheap souvenirs here, as well. Souvenir shops in San Francisco can be guaranteed to be vastly overpriced, so this is a great opportunity.
  • Angel Island State Park. All you will need is a picnic basket and a blanket! This beautiful park is full of lush foliage and wildlife. It is the perfect place to let children run around and play while you relax. After, enjoy a nice picnic lunch under the shade of the trees. You can also camp, hike, or walk the beautiful trails that wind around the park. It sits on an island and is completely free of charge to enjoy, offering fantastic views of both San Francisco and Marin County.
  • Cable Cars. Downtown San Francisco has housed these modes of transportation for many years. They are very famous and have been deemed a historical landmark. The track runs for about seventeen miles. It doesn’t cost very much to board the cable cars and take the ride to the top of the steep hills and back. The whole family will enjoy the ride, and you’ll get a great view of the San Francisco harbor, too.
  • Golden Gate Park. The Golden Gate Park is located just off the cuff of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is best to visit this attraction when the fog has lifted and it’s warmer. It houses museums and picnic grounds.

Historical Tours of Flagler College not to be missed

Category: St. Augustine   Published by

The most pleasant, informative, and convenient way to tour the historic city of St. Augustine is to take a trolley tour with the Old Town Trolley. Not only were we able to get on and off at all the important sites, we were also given informative information about the charming city of St. Augustine during on tour.  One of our favorite stops by far was the magnificent grace we experienced while touring Flagler College.

Flagler College was formerly the hotel Ponce de Leon and is listed as a National Historic Landmark. The former exclusive hotel is an exquisite example of Spanish Renaissance architecture.  The hotel was built by developer Henry M. Flagler in 1887. Surely there is not a liberal  arts college anywhere, that can boast the elegance of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s stained glass windows. What was originally the hotel’s grand Parlor, is now known as the Flagler room, here visitors admire Tiffany Austrian crystal chandeliers, and an impressive onyx Thomas Edison clock.  The grounds of the now four year liberal arts school are meticulously maintained.  I can hardly imagine having a college experience as royal as the students at Flagler College experience.

I highly recommend boarding a trolley and marking the stops that most appeal to you. You may get off and on as often as you like.  Each time you choose to tour a new attraction, you do not have to worry about the inconvenience of parking.  Your only concern, is how much of beautiful historic St. Augustine you would like to pack into your day. Though I strongly advise you, to make  touring Flagler college one of your stops.  You were surely get a great deal of bang for your buck. To tour tickets are  $7 for adults, $5 for St. Augustine residents with a valid ID, and $1 for children under the age of 12. The grandeur of Henry Flagler’s architecture should not be missed as a stop on your trolley tour of St. Augustine.
