The pleasures are pastoral and intellectual at author Jack London's beloved Beauty Ranch. You could easily spend the afternoon hiking some of the 30-plus miles of trails that loop through meadows and stands of oaks, redwoods, and other trees. Manuscripts and personal artifacts depicting London's travels are on view at the House of Happy Walls Museum, which provides an overview of the writer's life and literary passions. A short hike away lie the ruins of Wolf House, which burned down just before London was to move in. Also open to visitors are a few outbuildings and the restored Cottage, a wood-framed building where he penned many of his later works. He's buried on the property. Well-known performers headline the park's Broadway Under the Stars series, a hot ticket in summer.
