It's Summer! And in the glorious East Bay Area that means here comes the triple digit temperatures and heat advisories. The kids are home ALL SUMMER and your wondering what to do besides sit inside all day with the AC on. Problem solved! Here are Indoor options of places to take your kids this summer! We looked for Free and Low-cost ideas that are close to home and here they are:
(Click the name of each business to get directed to their website)
Little Miss Everything 220 Oak Street Brentwood We've got great indoor options for summer this year! We try to make our events both boy and girl friendly and low cost! Join us for Princess Story-time on Thursdays and make sure to keep coming back to check out our events because we are adding new ones each week. We also offer two free events a week during summer: A Free Craft before The Concert in the Park and a Farmer's Market Craft. Come complete the activity, come in and play (and feel free to do a little shopping too!).
Rockin' Jump 5641 Lone Tree Way Brentwood What's Rocking Jump you ask? Oh just A BRAND NEW indoor trampoline park in Brentwood where you can tire out your kids and still stay cool. They celebrated their grand opening May 29th and have special hours like Rockin' Tots and Rockin' Wednesdays.
Brentwood Library 104 Oak Street Brentwood The library is a great free option to get your kids indoors and do something productive (like read!). They have a great kids section and offer story-times on Tuesdays. Read our post Free Kid-Friendly Summer Events in Brentwood for all the details on their story-times.
Harvest Park Bowl 5000 Balfour Road Brentwood If your child is in the local school districts they might have came home with a free bowling game a day (FREE! Take advantage of that!). If you missed out on the free bowling they also offer great deals and have fun events like Rockin' Bowl.
Chuck E Cheese 6061 Lone Tree Way Brentwood Ok. Not going to lie. Not my favorite place in the world but my girls love it and since I am trying to put together an informational, non-bias list I have to include it right? What I do love about Chuck E Cheese is my girls have a great time and it's a guaranteed nap after because they are worn out so definitely should be an option to take your kids when it's hot outside.
Yogurt Pizazz 3860 Balfour Road and Streets of Brentwood If your looking for a semi-healthy frozen yogurt option Yogurt Pizazz is your place! Their Balfour location is nice and roomy and usually has a kids movie playing on the projector too. And I can speak from personal experience because I've known the owners most my life (and I may or may not have worked their part time when pregnant with my first daughter to supplement my Fro Yo craving) their establishment is top notch in cleanliness and freshness!
Bella Sweet Shoppe 3860 Balfour Road Suite A Brentwood If Ice Cream Sandwiches or Candy are more your thing head over to Bella's Sweet Shoppe! The food is delicious and they have a great space for the kids to play. It's a great place to grab candy you can't find anywhere else local.
TL Cakes 647 1st Street Brentwood Now I'm just thinking about sweets. It's not recommended to go to these places all on the same day. ;) But I can't mention dessert options without naming TL Cakes in Downtown Brentwood. Most people know TL Cakes for their amazing Wedding and Birthday cakes but many people don't know they have a place right in the heart of Downtown Brentwood where you can stop in and grab a snack. A perfect option when you're already downtown visiting other businesses (like Little Miss Everything possibly) and want to pop in for a treat.
All Inked Up Books 629 First Street Brentwood A great option to head indoors and look at some books. Unlike the library you can purchase to take home Forever! They have a great children's section and cozy sofas to sit down and look at a good book.
Delta Cinema 641 1st Street Brentwood Besides having great low prices all the time they also are bringing back their Summer Series every Wednesday and Thursday where they show movies and admission is just $1.50!! Annie, The Boxtrolls, and Dolphin Tale 2 are just some of the movies on this years list. Click here for a complete list of movies and the dates they play.
