PICNIC & SNACK SUPPLIES FOR YOUR ROAD TRIP

Start your day with a great cup of coffee.

With many restaurants and coffee houses offering drive-thru and curb-side pick up, the first order of the day is caffeine. Get your fix at one of these spots to get your day off on the right foot. They offer breakfast items too to fuel you up for the day.

Your next stop is to get a picnic lunch. Again, many restaurants offer takeout with curbside pick up so think beyond the deli sandwich. Places like Pita Kabab with great mediterranean options or pasta dishes from Bistro di Bufala or Rosa’s Italian Restaurant make great choices. Looking for some local flavor? Naturally Nuts and Pacific Treasures have a great selection of snacks for the trail. Pack it all up in a cooler, with plenty of drinks, and you are on your way.

Pacific Treasures, located on Main Street has lots of food items and other local goodies like Kathy’s Kernals, addictive caramel popcorn in lots of delicious flavors. But be warned! With more than just food items, you may find lots of great gift ideas too. They offer convenient curbside pick-up.

End your day in another park, with a picnic under the shade of a grove of oak trees. Mooney Grove park, the first county park in the state of California, is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy dinner. Lay out a blanket on the grass or use one of the many arbors that dot the park and enjoy a meal. 

The park’s central feature is the lagoon, stocked with fish. Locals will drop their pole in the water, looking to reel in a big one. While at Mooney Grove, also be sure to check out two more unique sites. See if you can find the Log Cabin. Built by the Boy Scouts as their meeting point, the log cabin demonstrates construction methods from long ago. Also on display is the “End of the Trail” statue by James Earle Frasier. This 17 foot tall bronze casting of the original that once stood here is a must see. This iconic piece is recognized around the world as a symbol of the native American people.

Park hours: Open 7 days a week. Friday and Saturday from 8 am to 7 pm
