Sometimes we like to play tourist even in our own city, there’s always something new and interesting to discover. One of the best ways I like to get Henry excited about walking around the city is to play a game of i spy with small details and interesting things for kids to find as you travel from point A to point B.
For this i spy game we took the streetcar on the Embarcadero from Fisherman’s Wharf to the Ferry Building with a little print out in hand of all the interesting things to discover along the way. We teamed up with Blue Diamond Almonds so of course we had some almond snacks to keep us fueled on our city adventure.

We picked a busy Friday afternoon on the Embarcadero, everyone was packed into those streetcars like sardines! So we decided to walk one way and then took the street car on the way back where we could find any i spy items we might have missed.
There were a few items we had to wait until the ferry building to see like a ferry, someone playing a musical instrument, yellow umbrellas, the number 9 on a building (we actually walked by a bunch of 9s which I tried to point out but Henry was distracted by too much other stuff going on).
We ended in the ferry building where we picked up some fresh bread for dinner and fruit. Then we jumped on the streetcar back, it wasn’t too crowded going the other way luckily. A nice Friday afternoon outing!
PS I did a Sites and Bites of the Ferry Building a few months ago if you’d like to see some must-try favorites
