Shopping outlets have recently caught on in a big way. Shopping outlets with their deep discounts are a great option for shopping for back to school, holiday gifts, and for families. Having all the apparel in one place helps you compare prices and products while saving time shopping around in different locales. There are several shopping outlets for some great deals and steals within driving distance from San Ramon.
These huge shopping malls usually have a large food court and other restaurants so that you can dine without leaving the area.
There are two premium outlets a little over an hour’s drive north of San Ramon. A closer option is The Great Mall in Milpitas which is only 37 minutes away from San Ramon. Plan for at least a half day to shop and dine at these outlets.

There are several restaurants to choose from. Dave & Buster’s, Olive Garden Italian Restaurant and Outback Steakhouse are just some of the options available to diners. If you’re not one for marathon shopping, you can catch a movie at Century Theatres 20. Finally, if you are shopping for tickets to concerts, games or shows, you can go to the Ticketmaster outlet to get good deals.
