June is a special time when Gay Pride Month, Father’s Day, Juneteenth, street festivals and country fairs fill the outdoor events calendar. We’ve done the deep research for you on the best things to do in the East Bay including museums, cultural events, food tours, athletic events, hikes and more. Speaking of food, we also have an extensive list of our best restaurants in the North Bay, and if you’re planning a weekend, the best places to stay.
The East Bay is sunny and warm this month, with average temperatures from high 60s to high 70s.
