Nut Tree

On Sunday, the family went to Nut Tree. Nut Tree is located approximately 30 miles west of Sacramento on the way to San Francisco.

We started the day by going to Amici’s, which is located in the Nut Tree complex. Amici’s is a San Francisco Bay Area chain that specializes in New York style thin crust pizza. They also serves salads, sandwiches, and pastas. It was the first time we tried Amici’s and we’ll definitely be back. The pizzas and salad were excellent. They had a kid’s menu which had quite a few items Emily and Megan would eat. Next to Amici’s, there were retail spaces announcing a sushi restaurant and a Thai restaurant coming soon. After lunch, we walked to the theme park.

The Nut Tree is a collection of retail stores, restaurants, and a kid’s theme park. The theme park had a train, bumper cars, a rollercoaster, merry-go-round, and assorted other rides.

    I forgot all about Nut Tree! We used to go there when I was just a kid. Looks like we have another place to add to our long list of places to take our girls.

    Hey I used to go to the Nut Tree all the time! Our family would stop there on the way too or from Tahoe (it’s been, ahem, decades since I’ve been there). Didn’t know it was still around. Fun!

    Not quite the same Nut Tree as before. It ‘s in the same location. I remember the old Nut Tree as a place to buy fresh baked breads, jams, pies, and of course, nuts.

    Now it’s a nice little shopping mall (with Best Buy and Old Navy as anchors) with nice restaurants. In the back is the kid’s play area. It’s a nice play area. On a nice day, it’s a good place to let the kids run around for an hour or two. I didn’t see the fresh baked breads, jams, pies, and nuts though.

    Unfortunately, the Nut Tree Amusement Park has closed down due to the economy.
