    The bearded lady’s mystique museum would be first on the list! I do enjoy reading about the lesser visited places in a popular destination. The arcade would also be a must see for me as I love those old style games. I can imagine it’s very nostalgic inside!

    This post was so interesting to read, I never knew about these places. I visited San Francisco a few years ago and never spotted the museum. I think the Good Times at Dave Wayne’s looks like a cool place to hang out for a while and I certainly would take a trip to the Calico Ghost Town.

    Yea, I have to agree that some of these are really “off the beaten path!” How did you discover all these? I’ve been living in Southern California since 1988 and still didn’t hear about the Bearded Lady’s Mystic Museum, but I think I’ll go see it soon. I live only 10 minutes from Burbank, in Glendale.

    I always like to visit offbeat and lesser-visited places at any destination. These places truly look like hidden gems in California. I would love to visit these places whenever I go to California. House party in 1970’s era would be a great plan too. Calico Ghost Town is also interesting!

    I prefer to explore on my own, so this guide comes handy! I find Calico Ghost Town very fascinating. The Halloween celebrations here must be fun! Kern River seems gorgeous. Tubing here should be worth it. I am not very fond of museums, but Southern California Railway Museum sounds good to me as I am a massive railways fan! My aunt lives in California, so maybe I will include these places when I visit her. By the way, loved the India pictures on your sidebar!

    My favorite off the beaten path place to visit is the Salton Sea! That area is crazy! That and Salvation Mountain are some of the most unique places in California.
