We live in an area where we have many places to chose from. That is why people come from all over the world to the Bay Area. One of our favorite places to go for the day is the beach at Capitola. The charming town, wonderful restaurants, shops and the view make us feel like we are in 'another world'.

When I run out of piant or houseses to put it on I like to staycation in San Leandro. My second best stacation place is Milpitas. San Leandro was better when Dandy Dog was there but now no more Dandy Dog. I like to go where Dandy Dog was and make pretent it is still there. Then I order and eat a make pretent hot dog. Milpitas is good because it is just good. I like San Leandro and Milpitas. You should too.

USS Hornet Museum, without a doubt. I love history - and the Hornet displays cover World War II, Vietnam, and the Apollo moon landings. For parents who want their kids to learn more about US history than just a few lines from a history book, this is the place to go. Plus, its only a short drive to Alameda, which has lots of great but "undiscovered" restaurants and shops!

Bainter, I believe that was the "Doggie Diner", not Dandy Dog.

Dear Dolores,

After consulting many CDSI associates, we have concluded that Drawbridge California is the best staycation in our bay area. Rich in history and the rich smell of a decaying swamp it prepares our corridor's residents for the eventual arrival home.

Shall we say, "Oh, PUNish me?"
