Hi, our trip is still a couple of months away but trying to nail down a few little details (most of the time we are just going to wing it). Our youngest child is turning 3 on our last day in San Francisco and we're thinking to celebrate we would like to have a picnic and fly some kites -weather permitting of course. Much simpler than organizing a party like we would be if we were at home. So, for the questions...
1. Where could we pick up some inexpensive kites in the usual touristy areas (we can do that in the days beforehand as we are exploring)?
2. Could you please give some suggestions for a safe & scenic park to do this in?
3. Any ideas on where we could get cupcakes near our hotel? We are staying at Travelodge by the Bay 1450 Lombard St.
Thanks in advance.
