Independence Day is nearly here, and the Danville area has a number of exciting events you can go to – whether it’s for live music, yummy food, a fun parade, or to watch the fireworks at night
From Mount Diablo to Sycamore Valley Park and more, there’s always things to do with your family here in Danville. It also helps that we’re pretty much central to everywhere else!
We know how challenging it can be with the little ones at home during the summer so we created a list of fun activities to keep them busy and out-of-your hair!
Danville, CA is a wonderful little town with just about everything in it. If your kid’s birthday is drawing close and you need party ideas, for example, here are some fantastic ones:
‘Tis The Season! Grab some hot cocoa and load the kids in the car to go see the Holiday Lights!
2021 can’t come to an end soon enough and with everything going on these days, it’s good to keep your mind off of it and enjoy the Holidays!
It’s that time of year! The leaves will start changing with the season. Even though the weather doesn’t feel like Fall, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy all of the Activities and Fun! Check out our list of Fall Fun and Pumpkin Patches!
