You can get a great combo visit--especially for kids because this location has the Coyote Nature, views of the Bay and a great kids hands-on spot in the Curiosity building. Save the hassle and park the car once. Nice place to walk around too. BONUS:...More

Great nature spot in the San Francisco bay area. Perfect also for plane spotting. The abundant Eucalyptus give the area a great smell and are absolutely gorgeous. Perfect for hiking and biking too.

I was there for a meeting and loved the surroundings and the set up. It was like being near the beach and still like being in the forest. Really enjoyed the peacefulness of the area and would love to return.
