Summer is undeniably a special time of year—and living at The Flats and Flats West in sun-soaked Sunnyvale puts you in the center of all the action. It’s time to start planning your perfect summer day!
Vibrant Downtown Sunnyvale
Sunnyvale is all about outdoor living—and what better way to explore your neighborhood than by walking or biking. Skipped breakfast? Need coffee? Want to pick up some snacks for the day’s adventures? Then stop by Whole Foods or head over to Historic Murphy Avenue for specialty coffees and tea, freshly-made baked goods, or a full breakfast to fuel you for the day. As you sip, savor, and walk, check out some of the 150+ public art pieces throughout the city. You can download a walking tour map and then pick a few that pique your curiosity. Or visit the shops or galleries you’ve been dying to check out. Go ahead—you’ve got time. It’s your summer play day.
Hiking and Biking
Parks and green areas are abundant in Sunnyvale so you and your four-legged fur baby will always have a place to walk or hike. Surround yourself in natural settings at the immensely popular trails of Baylands Park—preserved wetlands, picnic areas, and over 70 acres of parkland for outdoor recreation and fun. Or if a glass of wine and snacks after an invigorating hike is your version of summer fun, then take a short trip over to Cupertino and check out the Zinfandel Trail. At the end of your run, hike, or leisurely nature walk, you’ll arrive at the Picchetti Winery and tasting room.
The Beach Is Calling
If your perfect summer day includes playing in the waves and sinking your toes into the sand, then you’ll love Half Moon Bay (about 33 miles from Sunnyvale). A stunning four-mile stretch of beach which includes Surfers Beach, Roosevelt Beach, Venice Beach, and more. Bring a book and flip flops and you’ll feel right at home. From Sunnyvale, you’ll have your pick of California’s most beautiful and relaxing beaches—just don’t forget to reapply the sunscreen!
End the Day Right
At the end of your day’s adventures, head back to Downtown Sunnyvale and Murphy Avenue. Meet up with friends at your favorite restaurant or pub—food and drinks taste better sitting outside on a summer night under twinkle lights. Listen to live music, test your skills at mini golf, dance till you drop at Pure Nightclub, or catch a movie at AMC Theater. And when you’re ready to head home after a long day, your luxury apartment at The Flats and Flats West is just steps away.
