Looking for the best things to do in San Francisco and the Bay Area this Thanksgiving weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your list for this long weekend!

It's Thanksgiving week! Whether you are hosting, traveling, bringing your favorite sides, or going out to eat, it's a wonderful weekend to spend time with family and friends. I personally am so thankful to live in the Bay Area, which is packed with all these diverse and plentiful things to do with kids. There are Thanksgiving-themed events like the amazing Helicopter Turkey Toss and Turkey Trots in Marin and San Jose, and holiday fare like Union Square Holiday Ice Skating and a Winter Wonderland in Santa Cruz. So keep kids busy, make some memories, and most of all, enjoy some family time together. 

For more holiday inspiration and family fun, check out our Thanksgiving Activities Guide for Families for Thanksgiving crafts, movies (who knew?), and even Thanksgiving jokes. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Mommy Poppins!
