TERESA RODRIGUEZ Editor-in-Chief, WhereTraveler® San Francisco #wheretraveler

T

here is no city in the world that embraces diversity in all of its magnificent colors like San Francisco. This month we have so much to celebrate. School is out for the summer and families are flocking to the San Francisco Bay Area to enjoy the plethora of family-focus activities that this city has to offer. In “Bring the Grown-Ups Along,” Laurie Jo Miller Farr shares with us some of the best kid-friendly activities in San Francisco and around the Bay. If you are in town the last week of June, don’t miss the epic Pride parade that celebrates LGBTQ rights in a colorful display of floats and personalities. Take a walk on the wild side with Emma Krasov’s guide to exploring The Castro, the heart of the LGBTQ movement. San Francisco is a city that loves to be photographed, so make sure to tag your photos with #wheretraveler for a chance of having your shot in the next issue of Where Traveler.
