Make your #StayHome days EPIC in Stockton, California

Adapting to a stay-at-home schedule can be tough, but it doesn't need to be boring. We've curated a full-day itinerary to give your waking hours some structure--with a fun Stockton twist.

7:00 AM

Set an alarm (hear us out) and wake up to start your day with some deep breathing and necessary stretching. All those hours sitting in your makeshift home office, lazing about on the couch, or playing with the kids, will require some flexibility and focus. Shine Studios Stockton has a number of online yoga classes to choose from.

Check out our virtual events calendar for more fitness options.

After a that great yoga session, we suggest another great morning ritual: COFFEE. Call in an order for pick-up or delivery from any of the three Empresso Coffeehouse locations on our Dine Stockton page. A steaming cup of coffee, as well as delicious breakfast sandwiches, will keep your day rolling along nicely.

Check out for additional breakfast options.

9:00 AM

Working from home? Using Zoom for your daily/weekly meetings? Show your Stockton Pride by downloading these Stockton, California backgrounds and putting them on your zoom account. They are sure to get some attention, and cause a little jealousy.

Check out the directions on how to add these backgrounds to your zoom account.

10:30 AM

Whether you've been typing away at the keyboard for a few hours, teaching unruly kids, or plowed through your favorite show online, it's an ideal time to take a few minutes away from technology. Stand up, move around, stretch it out. Better yet, open up your door, take a few steps outside and snap a photo of something from nature. A bug, leaf, or flower will do the trick. Take a moment to appreciate the small things and then take that smile into the rest of your day.

12:00 PM

It's lunch time! Many of our local Stockton restaurants have altered their menus and hours to better serve their customers during these uncertain times. Many are offering take-out, curbside pickup, delivery options, and new outdoor dining, just for you. Spice up your lunch by grabbing a meal from The Downtowner, picking up a hot dog over at Dad's Hot Dogs, or scooping up a gyro plate from Go Falafel Greek Food.

on our Dine Stockton page!

After lunch, you may need some fresh beats and melodies to help break you from that food coma and keep you motivated. Log on to your favorite music streaming app, like Spotify, and enjoy the sounds of local artists like Darien Fields, Dirty Pillows, Pine + Palm, and Brandon James.

Maybe you--or those young ones running around your home--could use some attention-focused activities during an afternoon break. Creativity, color, and concentration can do wonders for the mind, and the soul.

5:00 PM

Work is done and it is time to enjoy some fresh air. Take a stroll through your neighborhood and enjoy the color beginning to bloom. Take long strides, deep breaths, and relax your shoulders from your ears. Snap a few photos, post them to social media with #visitstockton and enjoy the sights and sounds around you.

Be sure to practice physical distancing on your walks to keep yourself, and your neighbors safe - 6ft or more.

6:00 PM

It's time for the last meal of the day. Chow down on some sushi from Misaki Sushi & Bar, enjoy south-of-the-border cuisine at Octavio's, or devour some Italian delights at Dante's Pizza & Cafe.
