Fodor's Review

Named for the first and only president of the short-lived California Republic of 1846, William B. Ide Adobe State Historic Park is on an oak-lined bank of the Sacramento River. The Bear Flag Party proclaimed California a sovereign nation, separate from Mexican rule, and the republic existed for 22 days before it was taken over by the United States. The republic's flag has survived, with minor refinements, as California's state flag. At press time, the park's main attraction, an adobe home built in the 1850s and outfitted with period furnishings, was being refurbished after a giant oak tree fell on it during a storm.
