Looking to see lions, monkeys, and elephants during your visit to the Bay Area? The San Francisco Zoo is the place to go. Its first exhibits opened in the 1930s and included Monkey Island, a sea lion pool, bear grottoes, an elephant house, and an aviary. The zoo has undergone various renovations in the past few years, and is now a world-class facility that spreads over 100 acres and is home to over 900 animals. Since the zoo is located next to the Pacific Ocean, it offers visitors cool breezes and a convenient distraction from spending the day on the beach. The young ones in the group will love the six-acre Children's Zoo, which features a touch-and-feel Nature Trail, a Family Farm, and a Meerkat and Prairie Dog exhibit which allows kids to crawl and burrow through tunnels just like the animals.
