Woodland Things to Do

  • Heidrick Ag History Center and Museum

    Hidden down a small street in an industrial center the Heidrick Ag History Center and Museum is easy to miss. As a matter of fact I drove by it the first time never even noticing it was there.The museum features a wide display of equipment used for farming the fields in the Central Valley of California. The place itself is a big industrial...

    Sitting right smack in a residential area on 52 Jefferson Street you wonder where you are. It is this a crazy tourist attraction? Gas station? No its Reiff's Front Lawn Gas Station. His site is adorned with antique gas pumps to appear as an old filling station. However on a closer look you will also note that there appears to be an automobile and...

  • A Surprise in Woodland

    Tazzina Bistro is located in an old building on Main Street in Woodland. Inside the restaurant are shiny maple floors and tables that make you feel welcome.I dined by myself for lunch on my second trip to Woodland. I had the smoked turkey club sandwich. It was served with bell peppers, pickles, pesto, smoked bacon and lettuce on focaccia. It tasted...

  • Baby Back Ribs at Ludy's!

    Located at 667 Main Street, Ludy's first appears to be just your normal small downtown restaurant. However the inside and patio is nearly 5,000 square feet and can accommodate a school of folks. I would recommend the Baby Back Ribs at Ludy's. They are so tender and you can order either a half slab (six ribs) or full slab (12 ribs). The platters...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    So what if you decide that Woodland just might be a little more interesting than Sacramento when you arrive at the Sacramento International Airport. Well out front of the main terminals you will see a sign posted for the bus. Every hour at 3/4 past a bus leaves the airport for Woodland and Davis (a similar bus also goes into Sacramento). The bus is operated by the Yolo County Transit System. The fare for the 17 mile ride into downtown Woodland is just $ 1.50 with senior fares 95 cents. A taxi ride into Woodland would run you about $ 45.

    This independent bookstore is located in one of Woodland's old brick rice mills. The store is very large and has a nice selection of books and gift items. They have added a small cafe with assorted coffee drinks, pastries, and sweets. Note: The Next Chapter will be moving soon to the old Cranston Building on Main Street, Woodland.

    What to pay: The going rate.

Woodland Favorites

  • by Keeper_John Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: take the walking tour of historic and architecturally intersting homes. Several years ago, one of these jewels was awarded first- place in the nation for the quality of its restoration by the Trust for Historic Places. A picture booklet for use in touring Woodland is available at City Hall. Woodland is an enjoyable place with a friendly small town atmosphere.

    Fondest memory: I live here, so there are so many fond memories that I could write a tome.
