Do you have kids and don't know where to take them? Have you done everything you can possibly do in the Bay Area in terms of activities and playlands?

Well, now for something completely different. If you live in the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Area and need a fun day trip to get away from it all, I have an idea for you.

Consider traveling down to Ostrichland U.S.A. in Solvang, just north of Santa Barbara. After visiting this place, you can relax in Santa Barbara and get a bite to eat or maybe a little hotel room.

Ostrichland U.S.A. is a fun place for the whole family where you can visit with and feed ostriches and emus. Check out their website at

What can you do there? There is animal feeding and guided tours. Find out more at this link. This place sounds fun just for the novelty of it all.

Make sure you plan your trip in advance. Also, be sure to contact Ostrichland before you go to make sure they are open when you want to get there.

And if you decide to visit Santa Barbara too, check out for lots of helpful information to help you plan your day trip or vacation.
