Merced Attractions: What to do & Places to Visit in Merced
"This is the type of place where you have to slow down to soak it in. If you just drive through without slowing down or stopping, you'll still see a lot of birds, but you won't be getting the full experience.
I made the mistake of going there for the first time in August last year and learned w..."hy I was the only one there! It was very hot and there was not much water nor wildlife left. Just a lot of crayfish by the start of the Bittern Marsh trail.
It was totally different when I went earlier in January. A lot more water and of course, a lot more wildlife. There were plenty of waterfowl and raptors. I was investigating the photography blind, which was pretty much a broken down tent when a woman told me there was an owl in a nearby tree and a couple of coyotes across the road. So bring your binoculars and spotting scopes and take a slow drive...

"This place was so cute! It is kept very clean, has tons of picnic tables, and a petting zoo for the kids. It has all kinds of country and farm decorations and housewares, pictures and signs. We came for the day with my family, on our way to Yosemite and got ice cream, fresh cherries, melon salad, de..."li sandwiches, pistachios and some other yummy treats to take on our way to the Park! I highly recommend that you stop if you are traveling through Merced

"This museum changes it's high lights frequently. Therefore there is something new to see all the time. The docents are residents of the city and have great knowledge about the history. The staff is the best! Go and enjoy a step back into history. "
