Stopped here for a quick lunch. The ramen was good and the staff was really nice.

Go to https://www.cdaid.org/files/Parks/parks/Tubbs%20Hill/TubbsBrochuresmaller.pdf to find the information for the interpretive signs.
Park in the parking lot at the bottom of the hill to get to sign #1 instead of where Roadtrippers has you go.

Review from AAA:

Regarded as one of the most iconic roadside attractions, these steel and concrete dinosaurs have been hanging out in Cabazon, California since 1975. Located just west of Palm Springs, the 150-foot long Brontosaurus, Dinny, and 65-foot tall T-Rex, Mr. Rex, are visible from Interstate 10.

Mr. Rex’s Dinosaur Adventure includes a dinosaur exhibit featuring 50 lifelike dinosaurs, a dinosaur dig, fossil panning, and even a chance to climb inside Mr. Rex. If you’re feeling like a sweet treat, the Wafflesaurus Truck by Sweetosaur serves dinosaur-themed ice cream treats to go.

Admission prices are $13 for adults and $11 for children. Seniors and military members are $10.

You can no longer claim it as it is fenced off but it still worth the trip to check it out.

About a half hour’s drive outside Sacramento, the city of Fairfield is home to the Jelly Belly factory. This place is a true land of sweets for all ages with a café and ice cream shop and plenty of jelly beans for purchase. Want to keep your visit 100% free? The visitor center is open daily from 9 am to 4 pm and offers free walking tours that last about 40 minutes. With an official tour guide and an official factory hat of your very own, you’ll see factory workers creating America’s favorite jelly bean below observation decks (weekdays only).
You’ll also view some art pieces made completely out of jelly beans, and receive a package of assorted flavors for your own consumption. Tours depart every 10-15 minutes, seven days a week, with the exception of major holidays. See their website for up-to-date hours and holiday closings.

The Old City Cemetery located at 1000 Broadway, at 10th Street, is the oldest cemetery in Sacramento, established in 1849 it has become the final resting place for many a great Californian over the decades. Buried in these grounds are previous Sacramento mayors, Californian governors and also victims of the cholera epidemic of 1850.
The cemetery has been set out as a beautiful Victorian garden and you can take a lantern led tour of the graves to experience and learn about the rich history of the people here. The grounds are mainly looked after by volunteers now, the volunteers adopt a plot and look after the gardening duties that would have previously been completed by relatives.

Sitting right in the heart of Sacramento is the California State Capitol Museum, here you can see the best of California’s history as well as its current active government buildings.
You can get a guided tour around the museum as part of a group or you can walk around unaided, whichever suits you better.
The whole building is stated as a museum, but it is the basement and first floor where you will see the most interesting things.
