Summer Sanity Savers: Week 1

Summer Sanity Savers: Week 1

It's that time of year again!

The kids are out of school and no matter how hard you try, they always manage to bring up the "B" word... Does this sound familiar?

"There's nothing to do. Mommy, I'm BORED!"

Well you're in luck! Every week we will be sending out a list of fun activities the whole family that will get you out of the house. Not only will you be getting everyone out an about for the day, but you'll also get to explore some new places.

Here is our first week of Summer Sanity Savers:

 

Redwood Grove Stroller Hike:

Address: 482 University Avenue, Los Altos, CA

This little hike is perfect to get the family out and into nature. Located less than a mile from Shoup Park, Redwood Grove is the perfect place to take young kids. The large boardwalk path makes the trail ideal for those with strollers. 

If you still need a selling point, did we mention that the Adobe Creek runs right through the middle of the preserve? Oh yeah, and there are GIANT redwoods everywhere!

 

Mitchell Park:

Address: 600 E Meadow Dr, Palo Alto, CA

This park has it ALL

Don't believe us? Here's a list of some of the top features:

  • multiple playgrounds
  • water play area
  • sprawling open lawn area
  • barbecue/picnic areas.
  • tennis courts
  • RESTROOMS!!!

This park is 21.4 acres of fun for everyone, so we thought we had to share it with you.

 

Chabot Space & Science Center:

Address: 10000 Skyline Blvd. Oakland, CA 94619

Chabot is perfect for all your little astronauts and stargazers. Things to do include hands-on and kid-friendly exhibits, a beautiful planetarium, and evening telescope viewings from the observatory on Fridays and Saturdays. 

General Admission is $18 for adults and $14 for kids ages 3-12 and includes access to all activities listed above. Be sure to buy tickets in advance!

If you're looking for something a little more adventurous, they also offer an overnight Slumber with the Stars events for kids 4 and up.

 

We hope you get to visit at least one of these amazing locations sometime this Summer! If you'd like earlier access to our weekly lists, be sure to sign up for our newsletter.
