Grand Island Mansion

Reviewed By ruthandvern - Wilton, California

This mansion must have been "The Place" in it's early days. We attended a wedding there several years ago and found it spellbindingly magnificent. The food served was exquisite, the service impeccable. One great "Big Occasion" venue. Down by the riverside in old growth it just sparkled.

Cosumnes River Preserve

River preserve with trails and day hike facilities.

Reviewed By Bob L - Calgary, Canada

We have visited The Consumnes River Preserve several times over the past few years on our trips to San Francisco. We have been there in several seasons, some dry and some wet. Last year we had been there in very dry conditions and there were very few birds to see, which was disappointing. In March of this year there was lots of water and lots of bird life. Some of the trails had been flooded and were impassible. The bird life was wonderful. Some of the species that we saw were: blue winged teals, green winged teals, cinnamon teals, shovelers, greater white fronted geese, white pelicans, Audubon's warblers, scrub jays, red winged blackbirds and perhaps the highlight for us a pair of western bluebirds.

Al the Wop's

More saloon than restaurant, Al's has been attracting custmores to Locke since 1932.

Reviewed By Paul C - Upland, California

Stopped in historic Locke to explore on a quiet Sunday afternoon. After looking in the museums and shops it was time for some refreshment and Al the Wops is THE place in town. I think the only place! This is a very traditional bar with a dining room inside. We passed on the food but sat up at the bar for a cold drink and, in addition to the great and friendly service, were able to browse the history that adorns the walls.
Highly recommended when the heat of the day is too much!

Grand Island Vineyards

Reviewed By ibkphoto - Sacramento, California

This is a new winery/event location on the southern shore of Steamboat Slough. Hospitality was above and beyond excellent, wine is good and inexpensive. Definitely worth a day trip from the SF via Hwy. 160 or locals who enjoy wine tasting on the Delta.

Locke Boarding House Museum

Reviewed By sccfsac - Sacramento

The museum is actually located in the tiny town of Locke, which does not have its own zip code. Use Walnut Grove 95690 for GPS location. Locke just celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2015. it is the only living rural Chinese town in America. Founded by Chinese immigrants in 1915, it is a wonderfully preserved microcosm of agricultural life in the fertile Sacramento River Delta. You will see panels describing the history of the town, its inhabitants, and the boarding house, Other interesting sites in town include the Chinese School, Gambling Hall, Association Building, Memorial Park, Chinese demo garden and more. Admission is free. Guided tours are available by appointment.

6. Dai Loy Gambling House Museum

13951 Main St, Locke, Walnut Grove, CA 95690-9759 +1 916-776-1661

Once an illegal gambling casino for Chinese immigrants, the museum shows a part of life in the West.

Isenberg Crane Reserve

Reviewed By cvalentino - oakland, CA USA

We traveled from the Bay Area to view the fabulous Sand Hill Cranes for their namesake festival in Lodi last weekend. Our nature bus tour drove us out to Isenberg Crane Reserve. They say the birds prefer fewer vehicles so the bus is less stressful for them. We saw many hundreds of cranes as they dove in at sunset. Their seven foot wingspans are quite impressive. Their distinctive songs are refreshing to hear. This is a wonderful reserve and well worth the drive for that special sighting. Or just to see the sunset!
