Park $, then my Senior clipper card makes it easy to Ferry Building, then the street car works for me. From Benicia it is 7 Miles and no bridge versus bart. I like it, coming back the line wraps around the ferry Building,

Marshall's Farm

Reviewed By Lois R - Napa, California

This is a honey farm that also grows some u-pick vegetables. There's a dome where school kids come and learn about honeybees. There's a little outdoor spot where you can sample about 20 different wild honeys from wildflower fields and mountains around the bay area. If you are brave, you can go in the honey room where they can pour you a jar of honey in your favorite flavor. There are always a few bees flying around in the honey room, although in the half-dozen times I've been there the bees have never landed on anyone. You can also stay outside the honey room and ask the staff to bring your jar of honey out to you.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

America's only combination theme park, oceanarium and wildlife park features zany "Zonga," a twisted mega-coaster with four full-circle, tilt-loop inversions.

Reviewed By Blong83 - Cottage Grove, Oregon

This place costs almost as much as a worthwhile theme park without the benefit of the atmosphere. It was my daughter's first theme park and one of the attendants was very good to her but not much else was positive. She had an accident and we were not close to a bathroom and it was very difficult to get a few paper towels when an iced drink was spilled in her stroller. It felt like all but a couple of the rides we could go on together were broken (you can only do the spinning boat ride so many times) and not much shade. By the end I was willing to pay any price to sit in air conditioning and eat but the indoor dining was hotter than outside. Ended up paying $53 for two old burgers, soggy fries, six onion rings, and weak drinks. Bought our tickets online and still spent $140 at the park for a mostly frustrating day. Next time I'll save my money for Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm.

Empress Theatre

Reviewed By Rita B - Vallejo, California, United States

Venues that played at the Empress in the last year included acrobats, independent films, singers, tribute bands, etc. There is plenty of parking and the venue is handicap accessible. The theater has about 100 seats on the main floor and possibly 200 seats in the balcony. The first 8-10 rows in the balcony have good leg room; the remainder of the balcony seats are fine if you have short legs. All seats have good visibility. It is a historic building but it has air conditioning.

I was stationed at the Naval Training Center at Mare Island 1969-1970. The shipyard was considered off limits to us at that time so I was intrigued to learn that there was a museum. If you are into naval history this is a must stop. I expected a small place with a bunch of pictures hanging on the wall and a volunteer asking for money. There are pictures on the walls and the volunteer will not turn down a donation but there is much much more to this museum. There are several maps and models showing the evolution of the shipyard. On one of the models, I was able to find the guardhouse where I stood mid watch on cold winter nights. We spent an hour wandering around looking at all kinds of interesting artifacts. I was a cruiser sailor so submarines were unknown territory to me. The docent took me to the plaque of the second ship to be named USS Chicago. It was constructed at the shipyard in the 1930s and sunk in WWII. (I served on the fourth USS Chicago.) The periscope is fascinating even though I am a bit too tall to really enjoy it. I am a sucker for a gift shop. I purchase a Mare Island plaque to add to my Navy collection and ordered two USS Guitaro plaques (before and after she sank in the shipyard) and a plaque of the USS Long Beach. All in all a very enjoyable visit. If you are a navy buff be prepared to spend at least an hour in this museum.

The McCune Collections has been added to Vallejo Friday Night Art Walk (second Friday of the month) and appears to be the starting point from the western side of Vallejo. The artists set up in the foyer of the collection. Thus far there has been Ben Brookshire's recycled book art in April and Jean Cherie's sculptures in May and her life journey in June with others added every month. While the art is exhibited, the collection of books is also open for exploration. I was able to see a collection of over 100 pop-up books that were just recently added. A lot of work goes into making spectacular pop-up books. The nights I have been there the parking was easy, the admittance free, and refreshments were served. Thus far it has never been crowded so I had time to look around. After that I walked down Georgia Street to look at the other art displays. A handy map of the art walk can be found at http://www.vallejoartwalk.com/vallejoartwalk/map.html . It appears that over 35 businesses are involved in this art walk.

Napa Smith Brewery

Nice tasting room with plenty of room. The tasting was fun. All the wood in the bar& tables was recycled from Mare Island! Beautiful! They had a band Saturday afternoon we visited. BBQ truck outside, but they should consider having food.
