Town of Locke

Step into living history:  only a mile up the river from Walnut Grove, Locke offers historic interest, quirky shopping and good food and drink.  And yes, there is a Chinese food restaurant.

It is easy to pull off the highway and park in the parking lot by the public bathrooms or along the street.  A few of the buildings are California State Park museums (http://www.locketown.com/Boarding%20House.htm)

I had a relaxing time at the bar in Al the Wop’s where I met Dessa (who hopefully will be my tour guide for Walnut Grove).  I will return and enjoy a meal at Al’s place and post a review.  Meanwhile Al’s enjoys a 94% approval rating on the Urban Spoon.

Al the Wop’s (916) 776-1800; 13936 Main Street, Locke, CA 95690; open 7 days a week

Locke Garden Chinese Restaurant (916) 776-2100; Cantonese style; Tues-Sun 11-9
