The Central Valley is both California’s breadbasket and a jumping-off point for excursions to wine country, Gold Country, the Bay Area and Lake Tahoe.

Thanks to our friends at dog-friendly Visit Vacaville for supporting the Central Valley Region pages on DogTrekker.com.
The Central Valley comprises parts of 11 counties and stretches from Kern County in the south to Vacaville and Yolo County just west of Sacramento, plus Glenn and Yuba Counties further north.

The San Joaquin-Sacramento River Delta is a boater’s paradise that in places feels like anther world. But you don’t need a boat to explore this rich agricultural region marked with old-time lift bridges, small towns and miles of levees that in the id-1800s transformed a once trackless wetland into 55 agricultural islands that still produce food for Northern California (pears and wine grapes are the main crops). Numerous winery tasting rooms have cropped up over the past decade on both sides of the river, all of them dog-friendly. more »

This unpretentious “Rustic Wine Country” is one of California’s best-kept secrets and holds many surprises, including regional parks, a half-dozen dog-friendly tasting rooms and lots of farm-stands selling fresh regional produce. more »
