Living in Seoul, Korea can spoil a parent. Not all public areas are stroller friendly, but the city makes up for it with all the “kid cafes” and parks dedicated solely to fun for the 10 and under crowd.
I’ve been searching for fun locations besides the typical tourist traps. I finally have a list long enough to share with you all. My biggest criteria for making the list is that the location must be both adult and child friendly. Enjoy!
South Park burger joint with a laid back vibe. Fun burgers and awesome fries. They serve local brews and have a large “backyard” that kids can play in while you dine. They even have a little trolley.
North Park beer and bistro with an enclosed kid friendly area complete with bean bags and large screen tv. Great place to enjoy amazing food and local craft beers while your kids play. There is a large parking garage right next to it, which makes it convenient as well.
Located just across the Children’s Park in downtown San Diego. Everyone knows how much I love art and creating. This is a great place for kids to get involved in thinking outside the box when creating art. Its a fun place to play for an afternoon in Gaslamp. Lots of local eateries within walking distance.
I’ve posted about the exhibits here before, but it’s worth mentioning again. We’re a family that loves science and really want our kids to appreciate it as well. They have interactive exhibits that rotated throughout the year. It’s a great place to go as a family and then explore the rest of Balboa Park.
An indoor trampoline park that just opened in the Miramar area. The kids and I went to the grand opening and had a blast. It’s definitely geared towards the 6 and up crowd, but there is a large jump area dedicated to little ones. My almost 3 year old and 5 year old wore themselves out!
There is also a rock climbing wall for kids 45lbs and up, a cafe, and lots of seating for parents.
If you know us, you know that hockey is a big part of my husband’s life. He prefers roller and ball hockey over playing on the ice, but we do love this place for their open skate. They take good care of the ice and they have rentals for little ones as well. Perfect place to play when it’s too hot outside.
I sort of wish we had a longer list of family friendly restaurants that we enjoy, but we prefer cooking at home in all honesty. If you have any fun family friendly places to visit in San Diego, I’d love to hear about them!
