A guide to Northern California's offbeat and wacky people, places, and events.

Welcome to Northern California, and its oddest, quirkiest, and most outlandish places, personalities, events, and phenomena. With this book in hand and a smile on their face, visitors will learn where residents speak their own language, stay the night at a motel made up of cabooses, and go wild and woolly for the Big Foot Jamboree. Readers will meet an Elvis-loving cop who croons songs promoting safe driving, marvel at a light bulb burning since 1901, and learn where to compete in the International Frog Jumping Grand Finals. It does seem like Californians have more fun!
