Winters, CA

Whenever we are on a road trip in California, I’m using Yelp to find good places to eat nearby. That’s why we stopped in Winters on our way to Lassen Volcanic National Park this summer.

We came from the South on Winters Road and entered the town over the new Putah Creek bridge. We stopped and took some beautiful pictures of the railroad pedestrian bridge which was built between 1896 and was finished 10 years later.

We left our home early that morning without a real breakfast and were in need of a good,  big brunch. When you are traveling with kids, you need to watch their blood sugar level!? “Putah Creek Café” was highly recommended and definitely worth the stop! All the items “from the griddle” were delicious and the service was very friendly.

Winters belongs to Yolo County and is located along I-505 and along Putah Creek. It’s about 30 miles east of Sacramento and 60 miles northwest of San Francisco. It has about 7,000 residents. The Winters post office was established in 1875, Winters incorporated in 1898 and the name honors Theodore Winters, who provided half of the town’s land. If you’re traveling up north on I-505 you should definitely check it out!

Happy road tripping!
