Roaring Camp is Roaring Fun!
There are so many cool, fun, beautiful attractions in the San Lorenzo Valley that I am not sure where to start. First of all, where is the San Lorenzo Valley? I hear this all the time and frankly I am shocked. But, I am a curious seeker and traveler by nature AND I grew up in San Jose, just over Highway 17.
The San Lorenzo Valley is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Besides the gigantic Redwoods that reside here you also have a few small towns which include Ben Lomond, Felton, Brookdale, and Boulder Creek. One can access them all by Highway 9.
There are so many fun things to do in San Lorenzo Valley. One near and dear to my heart, as well as my two year old daughter is the steam trains at Roaring Camp located in Felton. Not only do they have fun train rides through the redwoods and to the “city” of Santa Cruz (as the locals call it) they also have fun events like concerts, gold panning and face painting for the kids and good BBQ. It’s a great place to have a picnic or just take a train ride with the family. Check out Roaring Camp when you have a chance, it’s worth the drive! by Gina Odom, Realtor
