Sausalito is a favorite destination for families form around the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond because of the enormous variety of activities geared toward visitors of all ages, and the list of activities for kids in the area is no exception! From educational and museum activities for kids to outdoor activities and scenic hikes along some of the most memorable cliffs and coastline in the world, Sausalito has plenty of activities available for the little ones when you visit.

Sausalito Parks and Recreation Department – The Sausalito Parks and Rec Department has loads of Kids Activities Programming going on throughout the year for those interested in some structured activities for the little ones. Ballet classes, Adventure Club outings, Tot Club, tap dancing lessons, music for small children, and many more activities are available for children all year long!

Bay Area Discovery Museum – The most highly regarded museum of its kind anywhere on Earth, the Bay Area Discovery Museum has consistently ranked among the top children’s museums and brings both children and parents back time and time again. The entertaining and educational exhibits will help your children learn and explore their potential without them realizing it is anything but fun! See the several distinctly different areas and let your child experience one of Sausalito’s most visited attractions.

Sausalito Area Beaches – Known as the seaside and bayside city in the North Bay, Sausalito has access to many of the North Bay Area’s best beaches and swimming spots within mere minutes. Check out our beaches guide for the best and closest spots to take the kids for a picnic by the water, a swim in the afternoon, or to see the majestic Pacific Ocean.

Bay Model – The Bay Model is a one of a kind full scale model of the San Francisco Bay Area with all of the realistic inlets, channels, streams, and water features featured in the actual bay. Bring the kids and let them in on one of the most entertaining educational exhibits they will ever see. Watch every fifteen minutes as the “bay’s” tides go in and out mimicking the real thing! Available as a self-guided tour, a guided tour, and an audio tour for nominal admission fees.

Marine Mammal Center – The Marine Mammal Center is yet another world-renowned attraction located inside the Golden Gate National Recreation area. One of the foremost rescue and rehabilitation facilities for marine mammals such as harbor seals and sea lions in the country, the Marine Mammal Center is the perfect way to teach children about the local native wildlife and let them have a great time learning about these wonderful animals.

Point Bonita Lighthouse – The Point Bonita Lighthouse is a great family outing because of the scenic overlooks and the picturesque lighthouse at the end of the trail. Parents will find the breathtaking views worth the short walk, while the kids will be entertained by the winding path that follows the cliff out to the structure and the bridge across to the lighthouse itself.

Exploratorium in San Francisco – One of the most visited science and technology museums in the country, the Exploratorium brings education and entertainment together for all ages. Parents may go for the kids, but they generally soon find themselves immersed in the exhibits and wondering “how did they do that”? This is one museum experience that will change the way you think about science and about museums.
