Dublin (formerly, Amador and Dougherty's Station) is a suburban city of the East (San Francisco) Bay and Tri-Valley regions of Alameda County, California, United States. Located along the north side of Interstate 580 at the intersection with Interstate 680, roughly 35 miles (56 km) east of downtown San Francisco, 23 miles (37 km) east of downtown Oakland, and 31 miles (50 km) north of downtown San Jose, it was referred to as "Dublin" in reference to the city of Dublin in Ireland because of the large number of Irish who lived there. The post office formally adopted the name in the 1890s.

This former railroad track is now a "people-friendly" 23-mile long trail for bikers, hikers, in-line skaters, and horseback riders.
I take my dog jogging every morning on the iron horse trail. It is a paved path that stretches approximately 25+ miles, away from the roads and commercial buildings. It's awesome for cycling, jogging or walking your dog (not too many squirrels).

Since opening in August 1988, the Blackhawk Museum has displayed classic automobiles and myriad exhibitions exemplifying art, technology and history. Local students, residents and international visitors enjoy educational presentations, cultural programs and volunteer opportunities. Since the beginning it has been home to the Automotive Gallery with over 55 vintage, classic, rare and sports automobiles on display. These automobiles are regarded as works of art and range from the dawn of the motoring age through the 1960's. In 2015, a new exhibition, The Spirit of the Old West opened, telling the story of the western frontier from the perspective of both the Native Americans and the settlers before, during and after the expansion west. The exhibition features authentic artifacts from the period, a large diorama depicting key historic moments, scenes of wildlife from the frontier and other elements that bring the past to life.
This happened to be the last item on our list of places to visit while staying at Danville, CA. The western display was awesome. And the antique display look terrific, but we didn't have enough time. It will be near the top of our list on our next visit to the area.

Stone Ridge is one of the better malls in the San Francisco Bay area. Its size is convenient, and parking is usually easy. I recommend parking outside of Sears. There is no food court.

I enjoy coming here because I am a Regal Club Member even though I drive from Fremont. Love those rewards. Parking is always a pain because of the mall and numerous restaurants, but it is a one stop shop for date night.

This theater is the perfect size - big enough to offer several current movie choices but without the long lines and crowded concession stands. Parking too is convenient in a lot right outside the front door. Neighborhood theaters are not as common as they used to be and I hope this one will be there a long time.

This off-the-beaten path winery is worth a trip for the scenery of back-road California. They make about any kind of port you can imagine and seem to enjoy encouraging visitors to enjoy the "fruits of their labors". Leave with great souvenirs-- not that expensive, easy to tuck into suitcases, and great gift options.

I love taking the kids to Earl Anthony's. They have plenty of lanes, always offer the bumpers and the roller (thing that makes it easier for smaller children to roll the ball down the lane). The food choices are pretty standard, but it is nice that you don't have to stand by the counter to wait for your nachos to be ready - they announce it over the loud speaker.
Small arcade for the non-bowlers in your group as well.

Forest Hills Farms is a historic farm that we enjoyed visiting.
In 1997, Ruth Quayle Boone bequeathed the 16 acre Boone Family Farm known as Forest Home Farms to the City of San Ramon. Since then it is a fun place to visit.
We enjoyed seeing the two historic homes (Boone House, David Glass House), exploring the barns (seeing old trucks, farm equipment), seeing animals such as sheep, chicken, cats, horses, and so forth.
There is picnic tables here for individual or group picnics. It would be a good place to have a birthday party.
There are pretty garden areas.
There are also special events throughout the year. We were lucky as we were able to watch them practice getting ready for the upcoming working dogs program. We watched the dogs corral the sheep; it was quite interesting to watch.
Admission is free. There is also a regular event called Fun on the Farms, which is held every Saturday of each month.
