I love sending my husband and children to IFly. The instructors are amazing teaching you how to maximize the jump experience. The price is inexpensive when you purchase your jump pass through Costco. The facility also has a monthly jump pass you can purchase along with personal instruction. I am getting this for my husband to use before work.

For anyone who lives in the East Bay the Redwood Regional Park provides an amazing escape to nature. Beautiful redwoods, views, variety of vegetation and lots of opportunities for a picnic. Be mindful of racing bikes on some of the trails that allow bikes, it can be a bit much on the weekends!

Anthony Chabot Regional Park

Reviewed By Susan P - Alameda, California

I've lived in the EB since 1990, and love to camp. Why haven't I stayed here before? Who knows, but I'm so glad a friend set up a weekend away for some friends here. This is a top notch campground, well run, mellow, with great facilities and nice hiking trails right out your door. One blessing is that they do a great job of keeping poison oak out of the campground area - for those of us severely allergic, this means we can relax a bit. Staff is great, bathrooms clean, free hot showers, campsites nice and spread out (compared to many NorCal campgrounds).

Be aware that it is an urban camping experience. You will hear planes taking off, and BART trains, and other urban noises. But up high in the eucalyptus grove, early in the morning, you'll also hear owls and coyotes. Enjoy.

Good spot for Picnicking and fishing. Mild to warm weather, but you can find something agreeable. Most families love it because it is near one or two bait shops and lots of fast foods and grocery stores. Horses are also nearby.

Reviewed By Dragonfly972 - Castro Valley, California

This is a Castro Valley icon... Been here for-e-ver... What I like is how friendly the staff is, and the fact that the place is pretty well kept (considering it's actual age). They have some arcade games inside, but the two 18 hole courses are the fun draw for the family. They have family packages that can save you a couple bucks, as well as a discount in the evenings. Good fun...

Westover Vineyards

Reviewed By Kristin089 - Brewster, Massachusetts

This off-the-beaten path winery is worth a trip for the scenery of back-road California. They make about any kind of port you can imagine and seem to enjoy encouraging visitors to enjoy the "fruits of their labors". Leave with great souvenirs-- not that expensive, easy to tuck into suitcases, and great gift options.

My family and I walked through Ghirardelli Square and went into check out the chocolates. As we entered, we were each given a piece of chocolate to sample. Lots of variety and different boxes of chocolates to purchase.
