4 Fall Family Staycation Destinations in the Bay Area
Winter and the holiday season will be here before you know it, so maybe now's the time to think about getting away with the kiddos for a fun fall staycation. Fall also offers some of the best weather in Northern California, especially on the coast, so take advantage of it while you can.
Here are four of our favorite family-friendly hotels and resorts here in the San Francisco Bay Area that offer a great combination of fun and luxury. Some of them, like the Claremont in Berkeley, offer on-site childcare so mom and dad can actually get in a little relaxation while the kids play.
The East Bay's iconic Claremont Hotel offers amazing views, history, an relaxing spa, and a full array of fun activities for the family. It's close but seems a world away.
Historic Cavallo Point Lodge right here in Sausalito is the perfect place for a family weekend away, and you don't even have to cross a bridge! It's right next door to the family favorite Bay Area Discovery Museum, too.
While it may look like it's just up near Santa Rosa, being at Safari West feels like visiting an entirely different continent—Africa! Go glamping in one of their luxury tent cabins and then take a tour of this nature preserve to see giraffes, rhinos, zebras, and more.
San Francisco's spectacular Palace Hotel is a historic landmark in the heart of the city. It has plenty of family activities and is close to attractions like the Children's Creativity Museum, Union Square, SFMOMA, and the cable cars, making it perfect for a city "staycation".
