Unless its training ship, the Golden Bear, is moored at the pier, travelers crossing the Carquinez Bridge (officially named the Alfred Zampa Memorial Bridge) may not even notice the grounds of the California Maritime Academy. But those visitors who visit its campus know that this part of Vallejo remains one of its most stunning destinations.
Stately palm trees line the paved walkways perfect for biking or strolling. Its well-kept lawns invite the occasional picnic. While the barbecue pits are reserved for Academy members, the comfortable benches are the perfect place to pause and take in the ever-changing panorama of waves, water and boats in the Carquinez Strait. Perfect also for indulging in some summer reading.
Check out this posting's List where we share some views of the Academy grounds as well as suggest books that go well with sunshine or shade.
