The next big tourist destination!

The next big tourist destination is….

The envelope, please ….

On previous threads, we’ve told people not to use Stockton as a base for tourism to visit San Francisco, Monterey.or Yosemite. But what’s to keep them from deciding they want to spend an actual vacation in Stockton?

I'd much rather have people come to Lodi and use it as a base for tourism. Better wine!

I lived in Sacramento for 9 years. I know what Stockton is like in the summer. Breezes? Sure, but still hot. A realtor who didn't know I'd lived in Sacramento told me it doesn't get hot there due to the delta breezes. It does. Stockton worth a brief visit? Sure. Still a lot more to do in Sacramento. There are some charming small, historic towns in the Sacramento River Delta (e.g., Locke).

Lodi? As the CCNY song goes, "Oh, Lord, stuck in Lodi again" (I do realize there are several towns named Lodi).

Are you two making fun of Stockton

TSS Et tu Brute ?

Shiloh you are a great ambassador for the lovely town of Lodi. It has some great wineries that are off the beaten track.

It's that super-group formed when Crosby Stills Nash and Young merged with Credence Clearwater Revival....

Actually for Chinese immigrants, Stockton is the not so famous "third city" of California gold rush days. SF being first city, Sacto second city. So it has a long history for Chinese immigrants and is a busy port city.
