Surf City Classic Woodies & California Rodeo Salinas

I want to remind everyone of two unusual local events coming up this summer (2012) which are fun and easy to drive to in Northern California. These events involve vintage cars and horses.  Everyone seems to enjoy these special community event experiences. 

Woodies on the Wharf – This Weekend in Santa Cruz

Do you remember my trip last year when I went to Woodies on the Wharf in Santa Cruz?  It is this weekend, Saturday only, June 23.   I do recommend this free event – the Woodies are fabulous to see. Please allow time to actually talk with each of the owners of the cars. Their local stories are fun!

If you want to avoid hunting for parking near the wharf, they do have a bike concierge set up for your bicycles or it is easy walking to the wharf.  You may take shuttles from downtown Santa Cruz.

Looking for my other favorite things to do in this immediate area?

Insider information -->The best buy for inexpensive good eats: 

Save one $5 bill from your shopping and buy one of the best hot dogs in town at Paradise Hot Dogs located right at the beginning of the wharf.  It is a fact, hot dogs are always better at the beach. Please say Hi to Vince and Marge for me.


California Rodeo Salinas, July 19 – 22

When Salinas is mentioned, I immediately think about John Steinbeck and books. Well, there is more in Salinas to do. They have the one of the oldest rodeos and horses too. Don’t forget this fun event, California Rodeo, in July.  Be sure to reserve your tickets now. 

I like to spend the whole weekend in this area and see the old town of San Juan Bautista, National Steinbeck Center, agriculture tours, (of course) many excellent wineries in Monterey, and drive over to Monterey Bay for a couple of hours. Did I forget anything?

Will I see you at one of these events?  Hint, look the person wearing pink and yellow sunglasses and tap me on the shoulder.
