    The old downtown has a couple old movie theaters, a Starbucks and numerous other cafes and restaurants, and some local shops. The architecture dates back to the early 20th century in places.

    Rahilly Park is a nice place to bring your children to if you're in Merced. It's fully equipped with slides, swings and picnic tables as well as its own unique set of playground equipment: segments of large irrigation pipes that serve as tunnels for the kids to play in. This park is the cleanest I've found so far, and it offers big old trees that provide welcomed shade in the already hot weather of early March. I just found it, so I haven't had time to explore it thoroughly, but I've been told a stream runs through it, and there is a walking path.

    Built in 1930 and largely unchanged since then, aside from some changes made around 1940 to accommodate a snack counter, the Merced Theatre in downtown Merced is a major local landmark.

    This is a popular place on Main Street in Merced. More popular even than the Starbucks, just a block away. This place serves pizza, sandwiches, soups, salads, and italian food, plus has a great selection of fresh baked Italian style pastries and a full espresso bar. Portions are generous and prices very reasonable. Closes sort of early in afternoon, so be sure to call if arriving for late lunch.

    Favorite Dish: Recently, we stopped and had asparagus cream soup that was very nice. When barista ran out of small latte cups, she served for small price a large latte.
