This travel blog focuses on things to do in BERKELEY and SAN FRANCISCO. It also features more travel destinations throughout Northern California. All are presented in small, easy-to-digest chunks of text along with plenty of photos so you really get the picture. Discover even more weekend adventures at my BERKELEY AND BEYOND website at www.berkeleyandbeyond.com. This blog is a continuation of my out-of-print guidebook--WEEKEND ADVENTURES IN SAN FRANCISCO & NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.
Los Gatos: History Museum at Forbes Mill; things to do
Santa Cruz Mountains
History Museum at Forbes Mill
Note the new name for the one-room History Museum at Forbes Mill, which is tucked away on a dead end beside the Los Gatos Creek Trail. Among the objects on display are an antique shirt press and iron from the long-gone Gem City French Laundry, and currently you can see as well a Beatles display from a local private collection (the Fab Four were presented the key to the town in 1967).
