    • great and interesting place to look around

      this is a great place to visit and hike. you can hike to the beach and have some relaxing time. Do not park inside. it will cost you. just park outside and walk about 0.2miles.

    • A slice of California history

      You can see it all in an hour or two. Well worth the stop. Imagine a few hundred folks living in the area running a trading post in the early 1800's.
