22 Jun Summer fun for the family
If you’re staying local this summer, Downtown San Mateo offers lots of options to keep the entire family happy. The Central Park Music Series runs for nine Thursdays beginning June 22. Pack a picnic or pick up some food to share while you enjoy the music. The Japanese Garden in Central Park is a special place for families. Many locals have fond memories of watching the fish swim beneath the bridge in this peaceful setting.
If your teen is a budding cook or baker, join them for one of the classes offered by Draeger’s Cooking School or Baking Arts. You can stay fit as a family with the martial arts family program at Core Taekwondo. Are your bikes in shape and ready for summer? Tune them up or look for something new at Talbot’s or Cognition Cyclery.
The Shop at Flywheel Press, Scribble Me Happy, and Art Academia all hold summer art camps and creative family programs. And the main branch of the San Mateo Public Library has lots of summer programs for children and teens.
When you’re literally feeling the need to escape, gather the family to try and unravel the clues at Ryptic Room Escape. After all that work, relax at a movie to finish your day. Enjoy the California sunshine and nearby adventures of a staycation in San Mateo!
