I'd like to check that place out with a meet - never been there.

The river road is pretty fun and it goes from West Sac to the town of Freeport. Only thing is there are a lot of bugs from the farm lands on the right side of the road if you are traveling it in a southern direction. You can go past Freeport but I've never been past Clarksberg. Right at Freeport there is a bridge that crosses the river and then you can get right back on I-5 with in like less than 5 min.
I've driven quite a bit further down the levee road. It is a good drive as long as no one becomes distracted by the river view along the levee road and goes into the drink. Slower-moving traffic can be a pain to pass, depending on where we are along the road. This is a drive that I've enjoyed at a more leisurely pace than Mosquito Ridge Rd. Many years ago I went on a high school field trip to a town called Locke (hope this map link works). I've recently revisited this little historic town that was built by Chinese (I think both immigrants and native-born) in 1915. There is a bar/restaurant there called Al the Wop's and it's a popular hangout for locals and visitors alike. I think it's known for their steak.

Click on pear label for the Locke web page.



EDIT: for link to Al the Wop's
