California Travel Tips

Take a Walk on the Wild Side this Weekend

Published on: June 12, 2019


In addition to the Father’s Day events such as car shows, dining, beer fests and the like, there are some fun adventures that take you out of your comfort zone and into the wilds or wild side.

Among our favorite western, cowboy and gold rush themed adventures are several weekend festivals such as Yreka’s Gold Rush Days or Middletown Days in Lake County. Always a hoot, be sure to wear your boots and get ready for some old-fashioned fun.

Another kind of wild is when your body feels the chill of the Sacramento River at Redding’s Sundial Splash. We’ve told  many travelers about this amazing city and its $18 million walk bridge which is actually a working sundial as well as an innovative feat of engineering you must see. The splash takes place in boats that pass under the Sundial Bridge.

Fair lovers can get as much excitement as the body and mind will allow at Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton, San Diego County Fair in Del Mar, El Dorado County Fair in Placerville, San Joaquin County Fair in Stockton, San Mateo County Exposition & Fair in San Mateo.

For street-wild head for San Francisco’s North Beach Festival where you never know what you’re going to see, hear or taste. It’s on the locals’ plate for a weekend of “wild and crazy.”

Vallejo’s Pirate Festival offers one of the most raucous, good times you’ll find in the Bay Area and it’s a great adventures for all ages.
