There are 10 restaurants/cafes within walking distance. Eproson park has a skate park, bocce ball courts, playground, baseball park & movies/music on summer weekends. Also within walking distance: public golf, tennis, pool, shopping, trails & regular street fairs.
Short drives to Black Oak Casino, Cover's Apple Ranch (restaurant, train ride, farm walk), downtown Jamestown & Sonora (popular gold rush towns with antiques, restaurants, museums, fairs, etc), Railtown 1897, Pinecrest Lake, Dodge Ridge Ski Area, Columbia State Park (the best-preserved gold rush town in America!), Natural Bridges, Moaning Caverns & Zip Lines, Ironstone Vineyards, Murphys (gold rush/wine town), Calaveras Big Trees State Park, local fishing, boating, hiking & mountain biking.
Longer drives (1.5 hours to 2.5 hours): Yosemite (114 km), Bodie State Park, Mono Lake, Bear Valley Ski Resort, Sonora Pass & Pacific Coast Trail, Lake Topaz, Groveland, & many other Motherlode/Gold Rush towns & museums. My family's personal favorite is to drive over Sonora Pass (Highway 108) to 395. Visit Bridgeport, Bodie, and Mono Lake, then drive through Yosemite (Highway 120) back to 108 for a full circle. Some of the most beautiful scenery in the world! I've linked a photo album below.
