48 Hours in Del Loma in August
Some ideas for how to spend a perfect couple of days in Del Loma before summer winds down.
Morning: Sip a Frappe or Blue Bottle coffee on the patio and watch the sun rise. Walk down to the beach and float on inner tubes or a stand up paddleboard; jump off the rocks across the river. Let the kids explore the Park on their bikes and play in the game room or mini golf.
Afternoon: Half-day rafting with Redwoods & Rivers next door. Enjoy wood fired pizza on the patio of the Strawhouse Resort. Take advantage of live music, Bingo, ice cream social, or other activities happening in the Park. Watch the Perseids Meteor Shower from the sports field (July 17 to Aug. 26 with a peak Aug 11 to 13)
Morning: Organize a fun game of soccer, corn hole, or disc golf while the temperature is still cool. Learn about gold panning from our in-residence expert, Dave Walter. Take a walk on the surrounding trails.
Afternoon: Head out to cool off and jump off rocks at one of the excellent beaches/swimming holes nearby. Treat yourself to a soft serve from the store. Play a game of volleyball (pool or regular). Happy hour socializing with Giant Jenga in the beer garden or at the gazebo near the river.
