San Mateo County Activities: 

  • Young Eagles
    Young Eagles is run by the Experimental Aircraft Association at San Carlos Airport. On the 3rd Saturday of every month they give FREE flights to kids ages 8-17.  Each kid gets a 20 min flight and a quick lesson about the plane's controls, etc from the pilot. 
    To get your free Young Eagles flight, come to the San Carlos Airport Terminal Building (620 Airport Way, San Carlos) adjacent to the airfield, on the third Saturday of the month (weather permitting). You will need to fill out a short form that requires a legal guardian's signature.

  • Discover & GO:  Free Passes to Museums through San Mateo County Library!
    Discover & Go provides access to museum passes, such as the Asian Art Museum, that can be printed online rather than traditional physical passes that must be picked up and returned to the library. As a San Mateo County Library card holder, you have access to numerous museums and cultural institutions throughout the Bay Area. Each Discover & Go pass expires immediately after the reservation date, so no returns required and no possibility for overdue fines! This unique program allows library users to make reservations online by date or by venue and print out a pass. Patrons without Internet access can reserve a pass by telephone or in person and print out a pass at their local library.
