How to spend a day with your family at Mily on Piedmont


When choosing a neighborhood for you and your family to call home, it’s important to pick a place that checks all the boxes. It should have great restaurants, safe outdoor spaces, and family-friendly attractions to visit for those days where you want to get out and explore. We’ve learned that Oakland, just a 12-minute drive from San Francisco, has all of the above. 

Located between two of the most walkable neighborhoods in the East Bay, Mily on Piedmont is in the perfect spot for when you’re looking to see everything your neighborhood has to offer. So pack up the car, grab your family, and get ready for a day filled with fun in Oakland.

Explore and learn

Whether you enjoy spending time at a museum or you’re looking to admire beautiful animals, there’s something for everyone in Oakland. The Museum of Children’s Arts offers hands-on cultural and art activities for kids of all ages, plus tons of educational exhibits and programs. Another great spot to visit is the Oakland Zoo. Featuring more than 650 native and exotic animals, this zoo has plenty of attractions to see during your visit, like zoo trivia, feeding sessions, and a petting yard. During the month of October, the Oakland Zoo will be hosting a Boo at the Zoo event, a Halloween scavenger hunt where guests can find animals hidden throughout the zoo. 

Spend time outside

Oak Glen Park, just a few minutes away from Mily on Piedmont, is the perfect park to spend an afternoon. Another outdoor space you’ll want to check out is Mosswood Park. This 4-acre public park, right around the corner from Mily on Piedmont has picnic areas, playgrounds, and basketball and tennis courts. Mosswood Park also has a community recreation center for tutoring and after-school activities for kids. 

Grab a bite to eat

While exploring your city can be fun, it can strike up some serious hunger. Head over to ButtercuP Diner. This family-owned restaurant has great food, reasonable prices, and is kid-friendly. Save room for dessert, because you’ll definitely want to stop by Fenton’s Creamery for a tasty treat. Choose from sundaes, milkshakes, or just a scoop of their delicious ice cream. If you’re looking to try something other than vanilla, we recommend trying their Pistachio Raspberry Swirl or Apple Pie ice cream.
