We took a day trip to Lemos Farm in Half Moon Bay with our two little girls and they loved it.
Why People Go
If your kid is old enough to like goats, ponies, trains, hay rides or bouncy houses, then you've found your spot! It's a great time for both the parents and the kids. It's definitely worth the trip out there. Our youngest, almost 3 years old, still talks about the ponies daily and we went over 2 weeks ago!
What to know
The drive was just about 45 minutes from Berkeley. We left around 10, parking was easy and it was not too crowded. No need to book in advance, just show up and they sell per ride tickets, unless you happen to get a special deal, like the one Living Social is running. The per ride tickets aren't too steep, but getting a deal is definitely the way to go.
They have a snack bar area that serves food, but we decided to pack our own lunches anyway. They have picnic tables you can use to relax and enjoy your meal.
It's also a super popular spot to have birthday parties. They have certain semi secluded areas with grills and private pony rides and/or jumpy houses for guests to enjoy. I have never been to a birthday party here, but the kids all looked pretty happy!
