  • There are a few large zoos in Bay area, but this might be a good alternative. It's small (and free!) but it provides a better emotional connection. There are stories behind the animals. Also, it's less crowded and less distraction. Great nature center!
  • Great place to take little ones and the best part is, its free. They have birds, rabbits, coyotes, etc. outside and a play area inside with reptiles on display. Kids can also play outside and hike up the side of the hill. You can also plan birthday parties here.
