Summer is almost coming to an end.
Plan a staycation in Walnut Creek
There is no rushing to the airport to catch that flight on time, no jet-lag to fight, and less time for planning. Instead, plan your staycation in Walnut Creek for more quality time (and less time traveling)!
A staycation can be as simple as a long weekend, or even longer if you choose. The best part is that you can discover all the local treasures you never knew existed or had time to enjoy.
Here are just a few ideas to get you started on your way to a perfect staycation in Walnut Creek.
Book a day at Changes Award Winning Day Spa

Stay at the Walnut Creek Marriott
Close proximity to downtown makes Walnut Creek Marriott a perfect hotel to stay in as you explore what Walnut Creek has to offer. With its modern design, comfy rooms, spectacular view of Mt. Diablo, and pool access, choose to stay here for just a night or the duration of your staycation.
See a show at the Lesher
Plan to visit Lesher Center for Arts, where live comedy, theater, musicals, and dance rule the day. Choose one of the many shows and get ready for an unforgettable experience.
Visit Calicraft Brewing Co.
Partake in craft beer, fruit cider, and spritz along with delicious food, maybe even some live music at Calicraft Brewing Co. Close proximity to downtown Walnut Creek make it a perfect afternoon venture to enjoy.
Enjoy lunch or dinner at one of the many restaurants in the Walnut Creek area. Enjoy something different at LITA, where you will find Latin flavors with a Caribbean twist. Beer battered wild rock cod balls, tacos, empanadas, coconut-braised pork belly in a blue corn tortilla, or fried plantain with jerk aioli and coconut are just a few of the delicious choices on the extensive menu.
Take a Hike
Spend some time outdoors and enjoy nature at one of the many parks and trails around Walnut Creek. Discover the beautiful gardens at Heather Farm Park, retrace part of the route used by mule trains to carry redwood, or the many trails to hike to Shell Ridge.
Staycations do not have to be boring and mundane, nor do they mean staying home and doing nothing. Between a spa visit to pamper yourself, an afternoon at the local brewery, or dinner at one of the many restaurants, Walnut Creek offers a lot for the best possible staycation.
