California is known for its great weather, and most people are looking forward to sleeping in and no school. If you are looking to get out of the house, the Bay Area thrives most when the sun is out. We are lucky enough to be on the coast and to have amazing beaches! Get your tan on at Pacifica, Stinson, Santa Cruz, and Bakers Beach. We also have an amazing transportation system and can take Bart into San Francisco or Berkeley.
Right here in Walnut Creek we have numerous activities including multiple community swimming pools, DVC classes for high schoolers and adults, and the drive-in movie theater in Concord, which holds frequent summer specials. Stoneridge and Sunvalley Mall are open every day. If you are looking for a summer job, there are tons of stores in Walnut Creek that offer positions to high schoolers including Nordstrom, Philz, Chipotle, YogurtLand, Safeway, Brandy Melville, Vans, Nothing Bundt Cakes, and many more! On the other side, if you’re looking to get your community service hours in, there are tons of places looking for help, along with ARF, The Trinity Center, Kaiser, the library, Lindsay Wildlife. Tons of other options are easily accessible from the Walnut Creek website!
