For the outdoorsy family parks are everywhere including Golden Gate Park and the Japanese Tea Gardens. Love tea? Sit the family down at Vital Leaf where tea tastings are free and happen daily. While you're in Chinatown (the largest one outside of Asia) head over to the Asian Art Museum where some of the works of art on display pre-date written history! Love coffee?
