Stockton – Road Trip with Huell Howser (142)

Huell travels to the port town of Stockton. We start our adventure on a river cruise to learn about the rich maritime and agricultural history of this busy port. The next morning we fuel up at local hangout, Chuck’s Hamburgers and then it’s off to the Haggin Museum. Huell hops on the trolley and gets off the beautiful Bob Hope Theater, which has been lovingly restored to its original 1920’s glory. Next we visit the historic Hotel Stockton and the Sing Lee Laundry exhibit in the lobby which commemorates all that the Chinese have done over the years to make California what it is today. Huell has lunch in the aptly named Hole in the Wall restaurant and then visits the Pixie Woods, which has been delighting the children of Stockton for over fifty years. Our adventure takes us to the Stockton Wetlands, which are great example of a man made area that has flourished and is a major nature reserve in the middle of a bustling city. We end our trip at the Cambodian Buddhist Temple, which has some amazing statues and is a major meeting place for Buddhists form all over the central valley
