Adventure Capital Of California

Not many people can say they live in the Adventure Capital of anything. Pretty much any sort of adventure or outdoor activity you can imagine, can be done here, except spelunking. The only thing we're missing are deep caves.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Adventure capital of California, Lots of things to do and places to go, Has something for everyone, Great for water sports and nature lovers
  • Cons:The people are weird, Lots of hooligans and drug users, Not much happends here, A lot of the cool spots are on private property, Low water level most of the year, Museum staff isn't professional, No nightlife, This town needs more culture
  • In a nutshell:Not as boring as people say it is.

    What a neat town. I completely understand the challenges places like these face. I live in one. Yet, you have some wonderful things to see and do. I would venture here most definitely. Excellent page!

      I'll check it out soon. I've been very busy lately and I don't log on to VT that often. Happy holiday season and a good 2015!

      Thanks. Come to Table Mountain in spring, so you can see the waterfalls, as well as the wildflowers.
