Poker Walk/Hall of Fame, Commerce

Pay tribute to great poker players and poker celebrities at the Commerce Casino. The Walk of Fame is reminiscent of the TCL Chinese Theater handprints in Los Angeles .However, the Poker Walk of Fame has both the handprints of famous poker players, as well as their most famous poker hand.

Giant Green Olive, Corning

This stop is perfect for martini lovers everywhere. Located in the olive capital of California, this 15-foot adobe statue sits with no signage explaining it. It was commissioned by owners of an Olive Orchard in Corning. There’s a black olive statue in Lindsay, California.

Immortal Tree, Redcrest

The millennium-old redwood tree has had multiple brushes with death. A sign will tell you all of the tree’s survival stories, such as floods and fires. Then you can mosey into the nearby gift shop.

Ranchita Yeti, Ranchita

We found Bigfoot! An 11-foot statue of the infamous yeti stands outside of the Montezuma Valley Market. The locals even adorn him in a Santa hat for the holidays. Do you want your own custom Yeti statue? Commission it right here in Ranchita.

26-Foot-Tall Coyote, Geyserville

Because why not? This metal sculpture was made for Burning Man in 2013. His howling head rotates. Grab a photo op, then head into the Wilson Winery.

Folsom Prison Museum, Folsom

This is a must-see for all Johnny Cash fans. Folsom Prison revived Cash’s career. The museum sits on prison property, and features a ton of Cash memorabilia and information. There are also plenty of prison memorabilia, like old shivs and the old metal gallows.
