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.

Coyote Hills Regional Park

Reviewed By Pixseal - Newark, California

There are a dozen miles of trails - from paved level paths to steep dirt trails. All of the paved paths are suitable for road cycling; many of the dirt paths are available for mountain biking. The bird life here is amazing - salt water birds, freshwater foul and tree dwellers. And a lot of seasonal foul.

AMC NewPark 12

Reviewed By mariard - San Leandro, CA

This is supposed to be the newest and greatest theatre in the area BUT.....many movies will sell out or only have separate seats available before the showing. Also beware that their IMAX with reserved seating is not luxury loungers even though it is priced as it is. They are cushioned chairs and that is about it. They do have luxury loungers in some of their theatres at this location so just pay careful attention when purchasing your tickets. Have been not impressed more than impressed with this theatre! Very expensive. It does have a bar with alcohol and their snack bar is self serve, which is kind of weird and always messy.

Central Park

Reviewed By Bill M - Livermore, California

Central Park (Lake Elizabeth) is a huge recreational park easily accessible with multiple parking areas. Our primary visits are for softball with multiple lighted fields and most of the time a snack bar but there are large areas for a dog park, small rental boats, picnic tables, basketball, tennis, playgrounds and simply walking the trails. For all events the primary thing to watch for is what the geese leave on the ground for you. Even if you are not visiting for an organized event it is a great place for a family outing or simply a walk to get away from the stress of the day.

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.

Union Landing Shopping Center

Reviewed By jpanda168 - SF Bay Area

An outdoor shopping mall that may or may not fulfill every shopping need. No big major department stores or high end designer stores.

After catching a movie there, you have a wide selection for places to eat, from fast food to sit-down restaurants.

The way that the mall is laid out, a few buildings in one section, would give the first time visitor the impression that you would need to exit from one section, drive along Dyer, and then enter another section. Instead, you could traverse through the parking lot of one section to enter the parking lot of the other.

Because it's off of the highway 880 exit for Whipple Road, traffic to get into and leave from Union Landing can be busy, depending on the day and time of the week. From personal experience, it is busier during commute and lunch time.

We returned to see a movie (Joy) on Christmas holiday week-end. Parking as mentioned was difficult to find. We purchased our tickets on line which as good as the ticket office was busy.

We enjoyed seeing our movie. Lots of people were there The staff was still smiling which is a good thing as it was such a busy holiday week-end.

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.
