|Finding Stockton's Delta Charms|
Peaceful settings, appealing waterfront, lively sports, and a Miracle Mile make this town worth a detour.
A major jumping-off point during the Gold Rush, Stockton once boomed with ironworks, mills, and manor homes. Recently, a massive effort to revitalize the waterfront has brought an expansive park and outdoor performance space, a pretty promenade and pleasure-boat marina, and a riverfront baseball stadium and sports arena, all with plenty of public art. Add this to Stockton’s neighborhoody Miracle Mile shopping district, international art at the Haggin Museum , and top music performances at University of the Pacific , and you’ve got the makings of an excellent getaway.
