Reading reviews here about the original Nut Tree, it seems most reviewers miss the Nut Tree's uniqueness of being a locally owned, one-of-a-kind, non-corporate owned business. Having never visited the original Nut Tree, I do not have the nostalgic clouding that some reviewers have for this place. Today this place looks like the antithesis of the original Nut Tree, it...

I only go shopping there. The trees are nice but you have to know where the stores are because you can't see their signs from a distance because of all the trees. If I didn't have a GPS I'd have missed a lot of good stores located there.

I remember the Nut Tree in the 80s as a kid--The Pumpkin Patch and the train rides. I miss the ol' days! The scarecrow contests and hay fever! Don't get me wrong, new Nut Tree is a great shopping area with lots to do; eat, shop and sleep. It's worth the visit!

This review actually covers several visits to the Nut Tree Plaza complex. In the plaza, and across the street are a variety of excellent restaurants. These are not the high end type of restaurant, but rather, great restaurants for travelers and families. Panera's is one of our favorites for coffee, and Panera's and Boudin's San Francisco (across the street) are... More

At the nut tree there are picnic benches with shade, a carousel, a train, and many other play equipment for kids. Tickets for the rides are $2/ticket (they offer a discount on Thursdays for military members) which is pretty good. The train goes about every 15 minutes and it goes twice around the track. The carousel ride lasts for roughly... More

I used to go to the original Nut Tree from childhood in the 1960's to when they closed it in the 1990's. My grandfather knew Bunny (and Helen) Power and the Nut Tree was always very special to us. I was heartbroken (as was my son, who also visited during his childhood) when they closed it. We took a vacation... More

Took the grandbabies here and they gobbled it up.... the merry-go-round was comfortable and priced right..adults with children ride free. Had ice cream later about 50 steps from the train ticket shed.
