To experience California as it was 100 years ago, take an electric train trip through the peaceful, picturesque Montezuma Hills over the original historic main line of the Sacramento Northern Railway.

As a living history museum, the Western Railway Museum gives visitors the opportunity to ride authentic historic streetcars and interurban electric trains from all over California and the western United States.

Dogs welcome in the museum, and on the trains! Please make sure your dog has gone to the bathroom before entering.

Bring a picnic to enjoy on the shady picnic grounds.

Don’t you love it when you stumble across something great that you never knew about before?

There’s also a fenced, off-leash dog park. Another prize find for DogTrekkers is Rockville Hills Regional Park more »

Sometimes the places in our own back yard are the least explored. And for many Northern Californians, Vacaville, a familiar name on Interstate 80, is one of them. Get off the highway, and you’ll find affordable, pet-friendly lodging (seven hotels and two RV parks) and plenty of ways to play. more »
