I love this book! I brought my 1 1/2 year old and 4 year old with me on this trip and used this book exclusively. It was very informative. We had a lot of fun! The only thing I would warn you about this book is the recommended places to eat...don't go to them.
With the use of this guide, we were able to find the inside scoop on all the favorite family attractions, ranging from Fisherman's Wharf, to the Exploratorium, and even the cable cars. The author obviously had children of her own and knew all the hot spots for families. The planning guides, colored maps, and reviews on hotels and restaurants made our first trip memorable!
