There's no better time to learn about Santa's reindeer friends than the holiday season, and no better place to meet them face-to-face than San Francisco Zoo, just 10 miles from King George Hotel. Reindeer Romp is a seasonal special event offered daily, 10am-4pm, bringing SF Zoo reindeer Belle, Holly, Peppermint, and Velvet together to teach kids about where and how they live – and it's free with Zoo admission! So grab a steaming cup of hot cider at Lemur Cafe, and get into the spirit with these amazing creatures before they head back to the North Pole on January 1st.
Another event to definitely catch is San Francisco Zoo Lights, December 22nd-23rd, and 26th-30th, from 4:30-8pm. In addition to thousands of holiday lights, there's seasonal music to sing along to each night at 6pm as well. Admission is $5 for everyone over the age of 3.
