Tide Pool Adventures with Kids

This is our weekly guest-blog post from the moms behind Red Tricycle, a site that focuses on the "lighter side" of parenting. Every week, they'll be bringing us their picks of stuff to do around the Bay Area with kids.

Calling all explorers! Ready for a fab outdoor adventure and a glimpse of an environment totally foreign to us landlubbers? Grab those microscopes, drag up all knowledge of the underwater world and head for the sandy stretches to where an amazing array of sea creatures have made their homes among the rocky edges of the ocean. From large seals to itty-bitty crabs and fish, there is a fabulous collection of animals on display during low-tide hours along the Pacific Coastline. Lucky for parents and kids, tide pools are nearby and in abundance in the San Francisco/Bay Area.
