The California Delta is a fabulous network of rivers, tributaries
and channels that creates over 1000 miles of navigable waterways.
The three major rivers feeding the Delta are the San Joaquin, Sacramento
Interesting Sights and Side
The infinite variety of the area must be experienced to be appreciated,
from tree-lined banks festooned with wild berry vines, to sandy
beaches, to isolated jungle-like isles. There are draw-bridges that
open to allow boats - even boathouses - to pass through, and you
can share the waters with ocean-going vessels, sailboats, a paddle
boat or two, and an old Chinese junk. The historic towns of Walnut
Grove and Locke are waiting to be explored. Locke was built and
inhabited by the Chinese immigrants who built the levees that protect
the Delta farmlands. Numerous waterfront resorts and restaurants
are scattered along the banks.
Sacramento's Old Towne and Stockton's Waterfront are two nearby
attractions for visitors to the Delta. Old Towne is made up of several
blocks of shops and restaurants that have been authentically renovated
to create a turn-of-the-century environment. Although somewhat similar,
the theme of The Waterfront is nautical rather than old western,
and the ambiance of its many small shop and restaurants pleasingly
reflects this nautical theme.
