A network of serene and lovely waterways connecting quaint little towns and marinas between Sacramento and the Suisun Bay area. We took a sunset drive heading south on 160 and it was one postcard scene after another. I hope to God this paradise isn't ruined by Governor Brown's proposed twin tunnels project.

Check out the Delta Chamber of Commerce's web page and take the Delta loop by car. Many good restaurants in Ryde, Locke, Rio Vista, etc. If you have good boating skills, rent a skiff for the day or houseboat for the weekend, and get out on the water. Alternativley book a trip with one of the local '6-pack' charter fishing... More

Fishing for Striped Bass, Sturgeon, Black Bass, Salmon keep anglers busy all through the year. Boaters can find a wide variety of activities from water skiing to nature watching. Stretching... More

You can get to the Bay Area by driving through part of the Delta. Takes a little longer, but worth it. Stop in Locke, the old Chinese town, and have lunch at Al's Place (aka Al the Wop's). Famous for their steak sandwiches at lunch served with peanut butter and jelly for your bread. Try to put a dollar on... More

Locke, CA is an historic town, built originally around 1915 by Chinese agricultural workers, passing through a phase of gambling and prostitution during Prohibition, and now a nascent art colony and historic site being preserved by a valiant band of local residents. This is authentic history of the American west and deserves to be widely visited.

Formed by the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers the Delta lies between Sacramento, Stockton and the San francisco Bay Area. The land lies mostly below the level of the rivers and sloughs, protected by the vast levee system. It is a boaters paradise - miles and miles of interconnecting waterways. there are also interesting drives - levee roads, old fashioned... More

Just ask the locals where to go when you stop at the fantastic wineries in Clarksburg. Miners Leap / The Old Sugar Mill / Bogle ( all within a couple of miles from... More
