This one is still in the original location. Careful, the floor is super uneven. There was also a journal on the wall that people have left notes in.

Unlimited tiny tastes! Amazing dry reds and whites and a good sweet blush. I went all in on the berry wine-arita and I’m in love.

Tiny place, $6 to get in ($5 if you tell them you visited the John Wayne museum, and it’s a dollar off the John Wayne museum if you tell them you visited the quilt museum). The attention to detail in the quilts was flawless. I don’t know much about quilting but you don’t need to be an expert to appreciate beautiful handiwork.

Maybe a bit pricey considering how small this place is but I thought it was really well done. There’s a gift shop, a ten minute tribute kinda film (which you watch while sitting in original seats from Grauman’s Chinese Theatre) and then one medium sized room with the exhibit. It was up to date and well laid out and there was some interesting info. Then you can go out back to the home he was born in. It’s small but it’s been redone to look as it might have when he lived there.

I won’t lie, I came here for souvenirs. The souvenirs are awesome. But there’s some fun photo ops and a weird blend of Star Trek memorabilia and local history here that makes me happy. Check out the bathroom too!

You have to park and go behind the yellow cottage building, it’s a hair salon right now. I love that there’s a bench in front of the marker where you can sit and reflect on... idk Kirk’s legacy I guess? Or the life and times of William Shatner? Either way, I cannot recommend this stop enough. Hit up the museum a bit down the toad while you’re at it.

I’m sure everyone was just drunk and happy from it being Tulip Time, but the patrons were kinda like... obnoxious drunk, being REALLY loud, hogging chairs, etc. Also they claimed to have 96 beers on tap. I like variety, I like beer, but that’s too much. I can’t read a menu of 96 beers, curate stuff for me!
