With so many unknowns surrounding COVID-19 and its effects on summer camps around the area, we have compiled this list of places still offering camp!
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!
We know how hard it is to search for places around the area where the little ones eat for free!
Summer is here and the weather is warm! Time to grab the life jackets and head out to a nearby lake for fun in the sun!
Spring break is here! Kids are delighted that they don’t have to go to school, and not even the thought of mountains of homework will put a damper on their mood. It’s Spring and the outdoors are glorious, so take some time off from your busy schedule and go have fun with your kids! Here are some of the best places around Danville for spring break fun.
It’s been a rainy time in Danville, and kids are starting to get bored. If you’re struggling to keep your tots entertained, here are some places around Danville that you can take your kids to on a rainy day.
