Anything to do in the vicinity of Galt?

Hello,

I was randomly booked to a hotel in Galt on Priceline when I was targeting the areas around Sutter Creek. As it is, I had booked us for two nights in Lodi and I now have two additional in Galt subsequent to my Priceline venture. Does anyone have any suggestions for things to do around Galt, but outside of Lodi for a couple of days?

Thoughts appreciated!

Galt isn't particularly close to Sutter Creek - about a 45 minute drive or so.

If the weather cooperates you could go to Cosumnes River Preserve (http://www.cosumnes.org/)

Locke is interesting. It doesn't take a long time to see it but it shows an interesting aspect of California's history.

Thanks for the suggestion on Locke. Good thinking.

I actually had some misfortune on Priceline's "Name your own bid" section that landed me in Galt. Sutter Creek was the true target and on a re-bid to try to get a hotel in Sutter Creek I threw in Galt as I had seen no reference of accepted bids there-only Sutter Creek. So much for that.

Be that as it may, I am trying to see what else I can find inbetween Sutter Creek and Galt areas. I will be in Lodi proper for two nights after Galt, so I am trying to save wineries in that area for my time in Lodi.

Any intel on nice food, historic sites, scenic places, out of the way wineries is appreciated.

One of our days from Galt will be spent in the Plymouth area's wine trails. I am kind of looking for ideas on how to spend the off day.

Thanks again!

If you're interested in history, you could drive up to Sacramento and visit the railroad museum http://www.csrmf.org/

It's not just about trains but about the history of the railroad in California e..g Gold Rush, Chinese laborers. I'm not particularly into trains but still really enjoyed the museum.

Hi,

I am already aware Galt was a bad draw. Once you use the Priceline Name Your Own Bid feature, you are locked into whatever location you, "win". Sooo, I have to evening in Galt and excurse during the days. I was in Volcano last year for dinner at hotel. Cute town. The drive back was treachorous through the woods full of glowing deer eyes.

Thanks everyone for the ideas.

For dinner you might try Elk Grove

Boulevard Bistro is a nice place

tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g32349-d61…

We've stopped there sometimes en route from our home (near San Jose) to Folsom.

In terms of mileage from Galt, its 14 miles away

Sometimes fog - but no deer (freeway).

Something is in the back of my mind that Galt has a huge flea market?

Also, you might get some ideas here... http://www.galthistory.org/
