This popular par-72 course was designed in 1966.

Reviewed By WhirledTravelor - SFO

Course is a bit out of the way but I enjoy the mostly flat course after multiple hilly courses in Brentwood area. BIGC has been around a long time and sometimes shows it's age. Decent bar/food service area and normal prices for the area.
Plus: Flat wide open course-good staff-good breakfast buffet on weekends.
Neg: Out of the way-older-not much of a challenge-cows and trailer parks take away from a well groomed course.

Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve

Reviewed By Snakewrangler - Brentwood, California

One of the visitors centers was closed for construction, the other one was cute but super small. The walk to the cemetery was long. Off to the mine for the tour. Little table for the kids to do some activity books to become Jr rangers. The mine tour was under construction (would have been nice to know in advance) so we geared up with hard hats and flashlights to walk about 50 yards in to cave, then turn around and head back out....a little disappointing.

Hannah Nicole Vineyards

Reviewed By jillyco - easy bay, ca

We love Hannah Nicole...the wine is really good (our faves are Sauv Blanc and Zinfandel) and the ambiance is relaxing but with a really classy feel. The inside rooms are open and quiet and the grounds are beautiful with plenty of chairs and views of the surrounding area and vineyard. We are wine club members (and have been for a few years), so we enjoy going to the member events that they hold throughout the year.

Contra Loma Regional Park

Reviewed By epbkm - Antioch, California

We love this park!! It is a great place to escape the suburban sprawl, and breathe in the outdoors. Lot of hikes, both easy (around the lake) to more challenging (up in the back hills). The lake has a large sand entry pool attached, which is great for the kiddos. What is nice is you can bring a picnic lunch with you.

It does cost to park inside the park, but if you want to just go for a walk/hike, you can park outside of the park for free (James Donlon by the baseball diamonds, or just outside the entrance - but make sure you leave nothing in your vehicle...it is known for break ends). The hiking is dog friendly...please keep them on a leash...but beware of rattlesnakes when the weather turns warm!! Yes, I have seen them...ugh...but fortunately they don't want anything to do with you either.

Lone Tree Golf Course

This walkable 6,481-yard, par 72 golf course is located along the rolling hills of Antioch, featuring plenty of trees and scenic vistas.

Reviewed By jnlsanford - Antioch, California

Antioch's little secret is the amazing golf course and restaurant. This is an old municipal golf course that has been remodeled and upgraded. The course is fun and a good workout. The restaurant and banquet center are exceptional. If your just going for lunch after a round of golf, or planning a big dinner, this is the place. The food is outstanding and the service superb. A fully stocked bar is available.

my oldest daughter wanted to have a spa day for her 43rd birthday, and since my husband and I are moving to the vineyard trilogy in the near future , I decided it was the perfect opportunity to checkout the facility, twist my arm!
The place is beautiful, front desk was friendly, efficient, we were showed the changing room, provided with robe, sandals, the showers have shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, the place is clean, while waiting for our attendant we were offered champagne, mimosas, assorted drinks, nice touch, we sipped our drink in a beautifully decorated room, fireplace, there was a hot tub outside with long chair.
I had the signature massage, the treatment room was spacious, clean, tastefully decorated, Lori was fabulous, the mix of hot rock and massage was perfect, she asked me a few times how the pressure was, quite attentive, I love that the table was warm and wide enough that your arms did not fall of.
After, we were again, offered drinks of choice and a nice little plate of fruits.
My daughters had different facials and both loved their treatment too.
Overall a fabulous experience , we cannot wait to go back

My husband and I attended a performance by a wonderful singer. Luckily it was in the afternoon as the neighborhood is not the best in the evening. Ricks on Second does open for night performances. There is adequate parking behind Ricks if you can walk the distance. . We love attending live music.

They have several pools ranging from toddler to almost olympic size swimming pool . Water is heated so it is warm . It has several slides . Nothing spectacular with the slides but the good thing is , they have so many lifeguards on duty manning the pools . Entrance is cheap too.

Dow Wetlands Wildlife Habitat Preserve

Reviewed By Seward_Bryant - Antioch, California

This is a 470 acre wildlife preserve along a scenic stretch of land on the San Joaquin River. With easy walking trails , beaver ponds, tidal wetlands and marsh areas.This is a great place to walk without to much effort. After you get to the ponds you will find benches and viewing decks for watching the wildlife. View birds, beavers, otters, turtles & more.
There are a few picnic benches. I suggest you take plenty of water a hat, sunblock and a lunch to eat at one of the picnic tables.
You can enter at the small gravel parking lot on 10 st or park at the Marina on L St and walk in
