5 Things to do in San Ramon, CA

Whether you are local to San Ramon or just in town for a visit, there’s much to explore in the city. While we know and love signs, we also love sharing all that our community has to offer. Here are a few of our favorite things to do within San Ramon.

Explore the History

San Ramon is full of history, and luckily, much of it has been preserved to explore and learn about firsthand. You can check out Forest Homes Farms Historic Park, which details the founding of San Ramon in a completely immersive way that is fun for the whole family.

A 16-acre farm with the complete Forest estate and the Glass family Victorian home are both open for exploring Tuesdays through Saturdays, with free family activities on Saturdays from 11am-2pm. We love that the history of the park honors the founding men and women of the city. Bring your family and inspire them to be the trailblazers for the next generation in San Ramon.

The Golden Skate

On just about every list of things to do in San Ramon is a visit to the Golden Skate. With daily open skate times, this roller rink is a throwback to the heyday of roller rinks that kids of all ages can truly enjoy.

The Golden Skate also offers roller skating lessons, a hockey team, and is available for parties and events. Attend one of the daily open skate sessions with your whole family, or attend an adult open skate session for a rolling good time.

De-Stress and Pamper Yourself

Want to cut stress and treat yourself? Healing Hands Spa has a host of services, from a full menu of massages, including reflexology, hot stone massages, and even a full body polish, along with facials,  and new age offerings like reiki treatments, and aura readings and cleansings to take care of you both physically and spiritually.

Looking to pamper yourself in a whole new way? Check out Enlighten Float for an entirely new, tranquil experience, unlike any other. In a small, sensory deprivation tank filled with 1,000 pounds of Epsom salts dissolved in water, your body floats atop the water to alleviate pressure to your joints and your entire body. Essentially, there is no gravity, no touch, no sound, and no sight, allowing you to completely relax during your 60-90 minute session. Those who have tried float sessions rave about the stress relief and physical benefits they receive from the experience. Don’t miss out on this totally new, refreshing experience.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

One of the things that make San Ramon so unique is the gorgeous landscape that just begs to be explored. Not too far from downtown is the Las Trampas Regional Wilderness Park. With over 5,000 acres to traverse, hikers and horseback riders love the trails and the remote feeling just outside downtown.

Bring a picnic and go for a hike, scale the 2,024-foot summit on Rocky Ridge check out the stables and take a horseback riding lesson, or even reserve a campsite to fully immerse yourself in the beauty Las Trampas has to offer. Don’t forget your hiking permit. Tip: Bring lots of water for you, your pets, and your horse— water isn’t always readily available at all locations within the park.

Check Out 18 (or 9) Holes and a Beverage

Can’t decide between a trip to a local brewery or a game of golf? No need to worry. Canyon Lakes Golf Course and Brewery has the best of both worlds available in one stop. With a brand new microbrewery now in full production offering a host of different kinds of brews, even those who don’t enjoy golf will enjoy a stop at Canyon Lakes.

The brewery also offers a full restaurant menu so you won’t go hungry after a long day of golf. Play 18 holes on the beautiful public course, and refresh yourself afterward with an ice cold brew and delicious meal. Canyon Lakes also has seasonal events throughout the year, so be sure to check out the offerings for fall, including their Halloween edition of their monthly Night Golf event.
