Schools are out and travel season begins. Many of us can remember when summer weekends meant stop and go traffic slowing down most cross-town activities. The advent of the stoplight is definitely an improvement, although trains can recreate said conditions. With that being said it is with excitement that we see The Highway 120 Adventure website has come into being, thank you to web designer Lu Ranere. We are featured along with four other cities between Manteca and Lee Vining. Each site has a drop down menu for pictures and activities in town. Under the where to shop, you will find a listing of our Chamber members. Is your name listed? The site also lists local activities.
