Things to do in Winters
Here is just a taste of what you will find when you visit Winters on the weekend.
Thursday night you are likely to find a stellar show at the Palms Playhouse and, during the month of July, take in an outdoor concert at Rotary Park hosted by the Winters Friends of the Library.
Friday nights are lively in Winters. Start with wine tasting at our two fine wineries, Berryessa Gap and Turkovich Family Wines, located in historic downtown Winters. Follow it up with a dinner of tapas at Ficelle’s or pizza from Putah Creek Café’s wood burning pizza oven and a visit to Main street Cellars to taste cheese and wine. Or try Preserve or the Buckhorn for dinner and drinks.
Enjoy a croissant at Lester Farms Bakery or get your caffeine fix early Saturday morning at Steady Eddy’s, before getting on your bike and riding the happy trail loop around Lake Solano and the back roads of Winters. Make a stop at Berryessa Brewing Co. on Highway 128 just west of town, to try a glass of some artisan brew. After burning off the calories, treat yourself to lunch at one of our friendly restaurants or a waffle cone at Chuy’s Panaderia. Be sure to take time out to stop in at Velo City Bicycle Center to make sure you have the latest in cycling gear.
It is also a great time to take a stroll over the historic train bridge and gaze into the cool waters of Putah Creek, the “green river” that inspired the Credence Clearwater Revival song. There’s a mile of walking trails on both sides of the creek. Sometimes in November you can see salmon spawning, and throughout the year look for beavers and otters. On your return, stroll back over the new car bridge, which has a sidewalk and spacious viewing decks for a westward look down on Putah Creek. The view at sunset is striking.
Summer Sundays also means BBQ time at the Buckhorn Steak and Roadhouse.
