    VisitedLittle farm was great for my almost 3 year old! We brought lettuce chopped into small pieces so she could feed the animals slowly (rather than toss all the lettuce at once and be sad). Remember, lettuce and celery only to feed the cows, pigs, chickens, geese, goats, and sheep! And entry is free!

    VisitedOutdoor seating means kid can be loud and we can fit the stroller. It also means great views of the bay. Plus: beer.
