Hi...I'm taking my family to California in March and was wondering if anyone could suggest the best places to visit in San Francisco. I'm unfamiliar with the city, so any suggetions would be appreciated. I'd like a good mix of culture, recreation, history, and fun for the kids who are 6 and 10 years old. I'm not sure where to book a hotel either. I have no idea which parts of the city I should avoid.
We'll be driving our way north from Los Angeles, so any advice on where to stop on the coast along the way would be greatly appreciated.
