Museum of The San Ramon, Danville
The Museum of the San Ramon Valley is dedicated to preserving and celebrating our rich history and heritage. The collections and exhibits reflect our human experiences, institutions, and cultures that were shaped by the valley’s landscape, environment, and early settlers.
The Valley’s past is featured in a permanent exhibit that includes artifacts, a historical narrative frieze, and pictures of historic buildings. The Museum collects, stores, and protects artifacts from the San Ramon Valley. The Museum sponsors revolving exhibits and several guided tours including the Alamo Cemetery and Old Town Danville. The store offers unique gifts, books, and toys for visitors. Make sure to check out their upcoming Exhibits!

Boomers! Livermore 
Boomers is great anytime – rainy day or not. If the weather’s pleasant your kid can play mini-golf, Bumper Boats, or go go-karting, and if it’s raining they can stay indoors in the arcade area. Boomers seem to have a good number of video games in the arcade area – enough to turn a sulky child happy within minutes. They also have a laser tag area, which the kids seem to enjoy. Load up your game card with points, because you’ll need them! Their food’s pretty decent too.

Rockin’ Jump, Dublin
This is an evergreen one for kids. It’s all indoors, it’s a short drive away, and kids can jump around, ride the ziplines, play dodgeball and other sports, and generally have the time of their lives. Trampolines are always liked by kids. Throw in foam blocks, a climbing wall, and sports, and they’ll be busy for hours. Rockin’ Jump has a Groupon page where they post deals now and then – in fact, they had one up a few weeks ago. Look out for more deals from them!

My Gym, San Ramon
If your kid’s rather too young for the rest, you can try out My Gym. They’re open to super young kids – 8 and under. Got a two-year-old? Bring ‘em in! They have gym classes (with adult supervision, of course), programs, camps, parties, and community events. You can go to their website to see what time your kid can go to the gym, based on their age. Their camps are also super fun, with games, gymnastics, art, and music. It’s a wonderful environment for kids to be in.

Golden Skate, San Ramon
They’re open to people of all ages – kids under 10, above 10, and adults. They provide lessons in roller skating, and if your kid already knows how to, he/she can have fun zooming around on skates. It’s not safe to skate on the road (although god knows kids will try), but a rink is both safe and challenging – which is an ideal mix. You and your partner can hang out and learn to skate too! Bear in mind their schedule, however – Golden Skate is usually closed on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays. ***The owner has announced they will be closing its doors, so get your skating on ASAP!

Danville Bowl
Been feeling a bit down lately? Take your kid out bowling and you’ll feel better in no time! Danville Bowl has 24 Championship lanes, with projector screens, leagues, and much more. Bumpers are available for younger kids who are still learning how to play. They also have a billiards table, HD TVs, and some great grub! Play a few games and roam around the place before getting some food. It’s the perfect place for a rainy day outing with kids in tow. They also have $1 Tacos on Tuesdays!

Victory Point Cafe, Berkeley
Take the kids over and play unlimited board games, Discord, and more! Parents can chill and drink a beer, while the kids play! For more information, click here!
