Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. 

This is not your usual theme park and I'll tell you why...

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is Northern California's only combined marine life, wildlife and wild rides theme park...

1.  Clean with lots of shade and places to sit down (my priority, but maybe not yours)
Lots of available large, clean restrooms.

2.  Outrageous rollercoaster...

3 Zero Cafe

The 3 Zero Cafe is hidden in plain sight at the Half Moon Bay Airport right off of Highway 1 just a mile or so north of Pillar Point RV Park.

What started out as a single cherry stand by the junction of highways 156 and 152 is now a major complex of food, fruit and fun!  Our family has loved stopping by Casa de Fruta on our way to Fresno (college student)  and any time we had to hop on Highway 5.

In this show we'll make this tasty dish and I'll share a tip or two on some "o.....
