Best Tourist Attraction

Run by a sansei (third-generation) Japanese-American family, this 30-acre farm harvests daily, providing fresh produce for its roadside stand, and offers an hourlong wagon tour, reminding you not only where your food comes from, but also that kids still love to root around in the dirt and pick their own vegetables. The farm hosts strawberry and watermelon farm tours March through August; private barbecue cookouts, in which larger groups can collect and clean produce, then chow on salmon, tri-tip or chicken; a pumpkin patch in October; and a Christmas-tree lot in December. Wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes and clothes you don't mind getting dirty, and as you trek and sweat and reap the earth, keep reminding yourself: no $10 soft drinks, three-hour amusement-park lines or expensive parking.
