Hidden Gems of Northern California

by Guest Author 2 December 2016 07:43

Want something fun to do that is more unique to the area? Well there are tons of things to do in Northern California, so much so that we do not have the time to list them all. However, here are five fun places that you should try and see whether it is on the way to another destination or you plan on hanging out in the area.

Mystery Spot - Santa Cruz

You may recognize the name of this place from past articles and media features, but none of these videos and pictures will compare to the experience. This is a fun place to go and see how some things just don’t make sense sometimes. You will get to see and experience how gravity works a little differently here. It’s exciting, odd, puzzling, and so much fun.

Whether you believe this is a trick or not, you will enjoy coming up with and testing your theories.

Winchester Mystery House - San Jose

In the early 1880s, Sarah Winchester was told by her psychic to move west and get a house. Then, never stop updating and constructing it. The psychic told her as soon as the construct stops she would no longer be safe from the spirits. To appease the spirits and keep herself safe, she bought a house and began around the clock construction.

How could she afford this? Well, between the money she received from her husband’s death and her mother-in-law’s death, she was making about $1,000 a day (Yes, they are those Winchesters).

This resulted into a house that is so confusing and has so many hidden rooms that people can’t even map it out. Come check it out yourself.

Mission Santa Clara de Asís - Santa Clara

This mission was founded in 1777 and was a part of Santa Clara University for a while. It’s free to the public, just need to check in with the college to get a parking pass. You will get to see inside the mission, as well as some amazing statues and the gardens around them.

Inside the chapel are beautiful murals and crosses with such detail that you need to see it in person in order to understand how truly magnificent they are.

Marshall Gold Discovery - Coloma

As you may have learned in a history class, there was a gold rush in California. In 1848, gold was discovered in the American River and people flooded in. Today there is a museum dedicated to this era. The Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park has a museum, tours, and more.

Please keep in mind the weather when planning your trip. If it is spring or summer you will want to wear stuff for warm weather and in the fall and winter you will want to wear layers.

Klamath Redwoods National Park

The most northern part of California is where Klamath Redwoods National park is home to the largest tribe, the Yurok. There are also lots of Redwood trees and salmon to view. If you know nothing about the area, you just need to go to the Yurok County Visitor Center & Amphitheater. The people there would love to teach you about the traditions and culture of the tribe there and the area in general.

Whether you are planning a long trip or just for the day, is the perfect place to go to learn about where to eat, stay, and so much more. Let us help you today!
