Stockton Waterfront

One day we when we were totally at loose ends, we decided to pay Stockton a visit. We’d never been to Stockton, CA; only heard of it. Stockton is the headquarters of San Joaquin County, which is one of the 58 counties of California. This city that is built on the Stockton River, seems to have grown to become what it is today because of the network of waterways around it.  Stockton also proudly wears the badge of the largest inland Seaport on US’s West Coast. As such our main attraction for the day was the Stockton Waterfront.

When we got to Stockton, we drove around its streets for a while and found that it had some really handsome looking buildings. We then headed to Stockton Marina and Joan Darrah Promenade, which is one of the biggest attractions in the city. Any why shouldn’t it be; just look  at these pictures from a stroll at the waterfront:

    Such a pristine and beautiful riverfront. Reminded me of the waterways of Kerala.

      Pristine, it was.
      I'm sure it looks great in the evenings too. I should do an evening walk there.

      How have you been, Nomad?

    This picture just rings one thing in my head that I desperately need a short escape from my life. It looks so charming and tranquil that I could spend days here at a stretch without getting bored.

      The blue skies added so much of beauty to this place. It made the water look all blue too.

      The sky was lovely that day and made this place a prettier picture.
      I don't know if it is one of the best places to live but the waterfront area is a great place for a stroll. 🙂

      I must go look at the port, sometime.

      Thank you for coming by, Alok. 🙂

    You do get around.. (My kind of life! ). Years and years ago our camper van broke down near Stockton and we spent an awful lot of vacation hours there without a car, so it doesn't have great memories for me. We should go back sometime, now that we are old and our vehicle is new … If anything breaks down nowadays it will be us, not our car probably ;)))

    • dNambiar

      haha!

      Oh yeah? I don't know much about what else there is to see around here. I would love to go check them out and I will be doing just that, soon.

      Next time that happens maybe I'll come and hang out with you. 🙂

      This part of the city looked truly beautiful. I see that it has more to show. I hope I'll get to bring more sights to you.

      Thank YOU, USP.
