Hello Trekking with Twins readers! Sorry that we’ve been absent from our various online homes for some time, but gut renovating a house and welcoming a new baby tend to fill up your days (and nights). One of our goals for 2017 is to breathe some life back into Trekking with Twins and keep sharing […]
We love San Francisco. Kat and I have visited on our own and now twice with the kids. There are no shortage of activities but here’s our favorite fun things to do in San Francisco with kids.
We found the East Bay to be a great base for exploring the rest of the Bay Area, but we also really enjoyed spending time in East Bay itself. We enjoyed some really fun activities for the whole family. Here’s our list of fun things to do with kids in East Bay.
While Magnolia Plantation & Gardens was overall a more kid-friendly plantation experience (mainly due to the petting zoo), Boone Hall Plantation and Farms should not be overlooked. In particular, the u-pick produce at Boone Farms is definitely worth a stop if the season is right.
We honestly didn’t see a lot of Charleston’s Waterfront Park, but the bit we did see was so much fun that it made our list of favorite spots in Charleston. The fountain at the end of Concord Street is one of the best splash fountains we’ve been to anywhere.
Some days you’re just looking for something easy and fun. Brittlebank Park fit the bill for us – it was across the street from the hotel (easy) and had a big playground as well as fishing pier (fun).
The four of us were in downtown Charleston one afternoon and noticed the abundance of horse carriage tours toting loads of tourists here and there. Of course, being tourists ourselves we decided to dive in and see what the fuss was about. Turns out, we loved it!
Coming from the Boston area, we have a pretty decent aquarium right in our backyard (the New England Aquarium) so any new aquariums have a high bar set for them. The South Carolina Aquarium did not disappoint us and we enjoyed a fun morning exploring its exhibits.
Magnolia Plantation & Gardens is a former rice plantation on the Ashley River just a few minutes drive from downtown Charleston. The main draw at Magnolia are acres of gardens of all kinds, one rolling into the next in an informal style. We are big fans of botanical garden type attractions at most places we visit, so this was right up our alley.
Based on some highlights from our time in The Holy City we’ve put together this list of things to do with kids in Charleston.
