Description

Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline is a 300 acre gem of a park. I was really surprised that we enjoyed our day there as much as we did.

We decided to make Father's Day a train day in honor of the boys' (and I'm including my husband here) love of trains. The Golden State Model Railroad Museum inside Miller/Knox was our first stop.

We all (including us 2 girls) loved it! At only $9 admission per family, it was well worth the hour or so we spent ogling the trains. The building that houses the model train set-ups is big at 10,000 sq. ft.. Be sure to pick up a "Treasure Hunt/Easter Egg" list on the way in. We tried really hard, but were only able to find a few items!

After the watching the trains, we headed over to the park and watched lots and lots of things. So many people were having picnics and parties, lots of people were riding bikes on the 1 mile trail loop around the park, a surprising number of people were swimming and enjoying Keller Beach, and of course, the geese and ducks in the saltwater lagoon were a highlight for my kids to watch.

It's windy here since the park is right on the point jutting out into the bay, so Miller/Knox is great for kite flying. For magnificent views, consider bringing hiking or good tennis shoes and trekking up hills on the east side of the park. On a clear day, you won't be disappointed.
