Clear Lake is believed to be the oldest lake in North America. The banks provide a nice hangout/fishing spot for the small town of Clearlake (yes, very creative name too). Notably the highest peak is Mt Konocti, a dormant dome volcano sitting in the Clear Lake Volcanic Field where you can spot other geological features like cinder domes and maars.... 更多
Love this little winery in the middle of nowhere! Good selection of reds, white and a Cabernet Rose' that was snaxing! The owners are good stewards of their land and adhere to sustainable growing practices. Service was amazing. Must visit.
I've lived some of the best years of my life in Clearlake, Lucerne to be specific. Back then the lake really was clear.

Some highlights: more meth heads than I have ever seen in one place; roads that would suit a third world country; abandoned homes everywhere; directional signs for businesses that... 更多
So scary. The person who reviewed it saying scary movie town and the sherif is in on it was exactly right. No shore to play. No beach. No designated swimming areas. The people in the town looked scary. Yard sales all over the place. No grocery store.
