San Francisco, CA
So Much to Do in SoMa
No visit to San Francisco would be complete without a cable car ride, a tour of Fisherman's Wharf, and a cruise down the world's crookedest street. But for kids, these attractions aren't nearly as cool as the high-tech hijinks going on in a funky industrial zone south of Market Street. (OK, maybe surfing Lombard Street is still cool).
"SoMa" (south of Market), as the natives call it, has become synonymous with cutting-edge fun and learning in this city by the bay. Maybe the scenery isn't as pretty as Nob Hill. But deep in the heart of San Francisco's dot-com district, you can make videos, crush monsters in a digital funhouse, and more important, play on computers that won't crash and burn like the ones at home.
