This summer, San Francisco offers a variety of fun things to do with kids, all free.
Listen to world music, watch circus, theater and dance performances, walk across the Golden Gate Bridge, explore two museums about ships and the Gold Rush, at SFMOMA see “The Chronicles of San Francisco” mural (look for the unicorn), take an easy hike around Lands End.
Collioure’s yearly Anchovy Festival is delightful! We watched a colorful Catalan boat parade around the harbor, looked at pictures of Collioure painted by children, ate fresh-grilled anchovies, and bought anchovy-themed souvenirs.
Fifty years ago, on July 20, 1969, the United States landed a spacecraft on the moon. This summer, visit museums to see rockets, lunar capsules, modules and rovers, and read books about space exploration and incredible adventure of going to the moon.
