    I love to get on the Canal Trail for a nice, easy bike ride. It’s flat and an easy ride. Goes for miles and it is safe with lots of nice people walking and riding their bikes.

    Perfect for kids under seven. Rides are not too scary, they can”drive” cars. Ducks to feed nearby, good train ride for little ones.

    Cocktails! Decent bar food! Movie! Oh my!
    I often wonder if the “reserved seating” would be good for theatres because there are so many less seats. With all of the increased comforts, it seems to be working well.

    This waterpark *might* be a little cheaper than a place like Great Wolf or Kalahari, or other places in the general area, not completely sure, but it's possible, particularly if you buy your tickets online ahead of time and take advantage of a special. But the admission price is just one part of it, they nickel and dime you on other things that I've never been charged extra for at other waterparks. Parking was $25! I don't know how you would avoid that charge but if you can get someone to drop you off and pick you up, by all means do so. What irritated me even more was that it if you wanted to sit in an inner tube in the lazy river or the wave pool, it was $15 for a single tube and $20 for a double (other attractions at the park require you to be in an inner tube so no charge with those) I've been to several other waterparks and never been separately charged to use inner tubes in any part of the park. Then it was $11 to store our valaubles in a relatively small locker; I can't fault them for this though, other parks charge hefty amounts for lockers.

    Two other problems with this park and they both revolve around the bathrooms.

    There is exactly one set of bathrooms for the entire park and they are near the entrance. While not a particularly large park, I find this rather inconvenient when you have to go, and in a waterpark, the way most peopels' kidneys react to being in a lot of warm water, you will have to go more than once. Of course, many people just can't hold it and likely used the wave pool as the other bathroom. I don't even want to think about that.

    Then, the bathrooms are ALSO the changing rooms but there is really nowhere to change except the toilet stalls and it is not at all pleasant. So, I recommend coming in your bathing suit to eliminate the first half of that problem. For the second half of the problem, either wrap a towel around yourself and head straight home, or suffer by changing in a less than clean toilet stall, and really, if you are changing a small child as well as yourself, you will have to wait for one of the larger handicapped stalls. There will be a line. At least the one we were in had hooks. Really Six Flags? Putting in a real changing area couldn't be that expensive. Every other waterpark I've been to has one.

    I don't see myself coming back here, despite enjoying the slides, wave pool and lazy river. Just not worth it.

    Shed's are shed's but they are operated differently with somewhat different lay outs. I believe this was second night maybe after covid of shows here. Attendance was not sold out and maybe that was good for more distancing, in any case i paid the extra for parking, not sure it was needed or not. I had heard parking was bad here with traffic jams i did come in a bit early and they were 30 min or so behind on letting people in through the gates. I had an easy park in and out though i think the 50 dollar version is more worth it than the 100 dollar parking issue, it wasn't explained to me that there was a difference and i could see none. In any case, was able to get back to hotel in Martinez very easily after the show. So check attendance if you can before deciding on the extra parking cost. But, overall very good experience.

    It's a darn shame that Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial is one of the five least-visited units in the entire 419-unit National Park System, officially logging fewer than 700 visitors in 2018. Yes, this historic site is situated on an active military installation with restricted access; yes, you do need to make a reservation and furnish some security info for everyone in your group (names, drivers license numbers); yes, you do need to report to the John Muir National Historic Site in Martinez at the scheduled time to meet your guide and get a briefing; yes, the van shuttle to and from the Port Chicago site is a bit of a bother (15 minutes or so each way); yes, you may have to wait a bit for somebody to come and open the gate; and yes, you may even find your tour cancelled without notice due to base security needs . But, wow, is it ever worth it! Port Chicago is the site of a catastrophic accident that occurred on July 17, 1944 when a fully loaded ammunition ship exploded and killed more than 300 people. The mutiny of African-American sailors that ensued (at Mare Island Naval Shipyard) is one of the more intriguing recially-charged events of World War II here in the mainland U.S. The information and photos the guide provides greatly enhances the worth of the visit. Personally, I found the tour of the adjacent revetment, where munitions were unloaded from railroad cars, the most interesting aspect of our Port Chicago visit.

    Stopped here, like I do most breweries, just to check out their selection. The place is away from downtown, in a sort of industrial park, where they seem to have a nice little operation going. Open, friendly brewpub area, which they said they were expanding due to the demand. I believe it, as I had my a flight of six different beers as they opened and watched as the crowd arrived over the next hour. Great beers but I am partial to the IPAs so that what I followed with. I just wish I lived closer.

    I love places that make you happy that you are there.

    Come here!

    This house is one of the few remaining Victorian ranch homes in Contra Costa County. It's historical connections are substantial; it was built for the daughter of Salvio Pacheco and her husband Don Francisco Galindo.
    This is a single family Victorian home built in 1856. It is not going to have the cachet of Colonial Williamsburg or the Biltmore Estate, but it is interesting and unique because there were so few families in the area in 1856 who could afford to build homes like this. And fewer homes still that have survived.
    The interior has been preserved with original artifacts and similar items from the period. Since the house was occupied by the family until 1999, the period aspects of the house continue to demand restoration and attention.
    The site is generally only open on Sunday afternoons, with docent led tours. During the holiday season, they often add additional hours with holiday decorations.
    This is an attraction for history and Victoriana buffs. Younger children may be bored. With teens, it depends on the young person's interests. There are stairways and different floors, so accessibility is limited.
    It is within walking distance (15 minues) of the Concord BART station, and the 320 bus from Concord BART runs about every 45 minutes on Sundays.
    There is parking in back of the Galindo House and on the street. More parking may be in the works with the development of the Concord Museum and Event Center (CMEC) next door.

    Don't look for it. The theater group has shuttered the doors.

    Trip Advisor requires a minimum of 100 characters, so I'm simply filling space to enable submission of this review!!!

    We had a great time doing the Wizard Escape room. We even broke their record for it. It was fun and challenging, it felt very clean. It was a single room, so best for a group of 4 or so people, could be crowded with more. Everything was very clean and well sanitized. Other escape room times were staggered, so we didn't really encounter other groups. Overall was a great time and will definitely come back and try the other rooms.
