DEPARTURE: We will depart at 11:30am – we will head West on Crow Canyon Rd, toward Castro Valley. After a short drive, we will turn right onto E Castro Valley Blvd. Once on E Castro Valley Blvd, you go past Redwood Rd, then turn right into the shopping center right after Walgreens (you’ll pass Safeway’s first then look for Walgreens). Parking will be tight, find the first spot you can, we will NOT be able to all park together.
LUNCH: Don Jose Mexican Restaurant at 3430 Village Dr., Castro Valley, CA 94546 and break for lunch. BRING CASH just in case they require only 1 check for the entire group. Don Jose's Restaurants | Castro Valley, CA 94546
DRIVE: After lunch, we will exit the East side of the restaurant’s parking lot, turning left onto Redwood Rd. If we get separated, shortly up Redwood Rd there is street side area where we can get in line. This is a twisty road with frequent bicyclist and occasional areas of congested street side parking. We will eventually dead-end into Skyline Blvd and turn right. We will keep right on Skyline Blvd at the Joaquin Miller split. After leaving the restaurant, it takes about an hour to get to our final destination of Chabot Space and Science Center. We can use the Cul-de-sac area for a quick photo-op, then park in the nearby garage or other parking areas along the drive.
Although this is a short drive, I highly recommend doing the tour of the Chabot Space and Science Center. Take in a planetarium show, tour the telescopes and hopefully get a chance to view through one of the telescopes. There is much to see and do here, so take your time and enjoy.
Tickets are $18.00 general admission & $15.00 for those over 65 years of age.
