It's the time of the year when everything restarts! We are not in the Holiday Season anymore. School is open, Work is on, new goals, updated calendars and all the other extra-curricular activities have resumed too.

However, the days are still short. It gets dark at 5pm and all the motivation to be out and about dwindles after sunset. That leaves us with bored little kids, with tons of un-spent energy stuck inside the house. The task to entertain the littles is no easy feat. So in the winter months we front load our days and try to tire out the kids during the day. We still get jumpy kids in the evening but they do calm down relatively easily.

Following is the list of our favorite Winter Activities in Bay Area.



Best time for Hikes

All the rains that we get in the winters make for a lush green landscape at all the hiking places. There are wildflowers everywhere. The streams are flowing again. And the cool weather means it's so much easier to climb up the hike. Bay Area offers a wide variety of hikes from easy to hard, from toddler friendly to advanced hiker. You can find a hike that works for everyone in the family. What a fun way to spend some time in nature.
