Clarksburg is a lovely small town in Yolo County on the west side of the Sacramento River. It is easy to reach from Sacramento via the Freeport Bridge. It is an up and coming wine producing region and working hard to be a destination for wine-tasting at the Old Sugar Mill.
As I drove around I found myself smiling at the town clock, the community library, and the Eagle Scout park. Pleasantville comes to mind, only smaller.
Clarksburg is a 30 minute drive from East Sacramento and an easy reach from Davis via West Sacramento. You can also reach it by boat, parking at the Clarksburg Marina.
The only place to eat in town is Husick’s Country Store (see review). It is a great place to eat before wine tasting or to buy a picnic lunch.
