Fun Places Near Fremont

From wildlife parks to geological formations, historic sites, museums, amusement parks, and mini golf, there is plenty to see and do in and around Fremont. Established in the mid-1840s, the city was home to California’s first movie-making community. An efficient transit system makes it easy to visit places of interest in the San Francisco Bay Area. Here are some fun places near Fremont that are extremely popular with the local people and tourists.


  • Golfland (of course!): Mini golf, putt putt, whatever you call it, the world-class Golfland ranges provide loads of fun for couples on a date, families, and corporate events. An arcade, a water park, and bumper boats offer something for everyone to enjoy. Our locations in Milpitas (in the south) and Castro Valley (to the north) are easily accessible from Fremont.
  • The Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum: This historical gem offers unique insights into Fremont’s history of filmmaking. Antique cameras, original movie posters, and weekly film showings keep the spirit of silent films alive.
  • Stanford University: A short drive away from the museum is one of the world’s leading research and teaching institutions—Stanford University. The founders of Hewlett-Packard and Yahoo, among other global corporations, have passed through its haloed doors. The beautiful campus, cactus garden, Memorial Church, and Hoover Tower are all very impressive.
  • Great Mall: Considered the largest indoor outlet and value shopping destination in Northern California, the Great Mall has more than 200 stores ranging from jewelry to women’s apparel, sporting goods, and more. Located conveniently off the intersection of I-880 and Great Mall Expressway, as well as the intersection of I-680 and Montague Expressway, it serves the neighboring communities of Fremont, Milpitas, San Jose, and Santa Clara.
  • Museum at Coyote Hills: This natural history museum traces the life of the Ohlone Indians, and is a must-see, especially for kids. Alongside interesting presentations of animal and plant species in the park, you will also see informative presentations of Native Indian tools and artifacts housed in the museum.
