No need to go out of the state to see Old Faithful.
A quick trip to Calistoga, in the Napa Valley, will bring you to California’s version of the famous geyser that shares a namesake. It’s one of three geysers in the world with the “old faithful” moniker, which are geysers that perform at regular intervals.
Old Faithful in Calistoga erupts about every 30 minutes, shooting water 60 to 100 feet in the air.
The grounds have a picnic location, a snack bar and gift store in addition to a petting zoo that features Tennessee fainting goats, Jacob’s four-horn sheep and guard llamas.
Location: 1299 Tubbs Lane, Calistoga
