Stockton Travel Guide
Welcome to Stockton!
Stockton is home to a vibrant arts scene that showcases everything from opera and live theatre to concerts and art shows. The annual Asparagus Festival draws thousands of visitors from all over the state to celebrate the San Joaquin Valley's most prized harvest. Live entertainment adds to the fun at this food-centered festival, along with beer and wine tents and a number of merchandise vendors. For the rare rainy day in Stockton, the Clever Planetarium is a good destination that allows visitors to view planets and stars projected on a 33-foot aluminum dome. During the warmer summer months, Victory Park in Stockton is home to free concerts, which have been staged here for more than 50 years. Visitors are welcome to bring a blanket and enjoy live music on weekend evenings from June through August. The Pixie Woods Amusement Park is another Stockton landmark, offering rides on a merry-go-round and a miniature train.
