First and foremost, I’d like to thank you for your interest in our wonderful county. Whether you are new to Lake County, a lifetime resident or somewhere in between, you’ll find Destinations 2019 to contain the very best of what our county has to offer. If it’s good clean fun you’re after, our county has it for you. We are very proud to be recognized with a ranking of #4 in the nation by the American Lung Association for our clean air. Taking in the fresh air while kayaking down Cache Creek, pedaling along the many biking trails throughout the county or hiking up Mt Konocti are just a few of the many memories you’ll take with you.

Clear Lake continues to draw fishing enthusiasts from around the world. Pros and novices alike have been drawn to the bounty of bass, crappie, and catfish that inhabit our beautiful lake. Not into fishing but love the water? We can help you there as well with year-round activities on the lake; boating, water skiing, paddle boarding or just taking a leisurely tour on a pontoon boat around Anderson Marsh or Rodman Slough. You’ll find white pelicans, grebes, and herons, along with many other species of wildlife that call Clear Lake their home.

After your day on the lake or your trek on the trails, enjoy a delicious meal at one of the many restaurants in the county that utilize locally sourced ingredients to create a delicious end to your day. Did someone mention wine with that meal? Lake County has been featured recently in the Wine Spectator and Decanter magazines. In addition, the Red Hills region of Lake County has been cited as one of the “12 Next Great Wine Regions” in Food & Wine Magazine. So, if spending a relaxing day exploring the many flavors from around the county suits your tastes, Destinations 2019 can help be your guide.

The Lake County Chamber of Commerce would like to thank you for making Lake County a destination not to be missed in 2019.
