There’s never a lack of fun things to do in Stockton. If you have a free day, you can always:

  • Walk the Miracle Mile
  • Stroll the Pixie Woods
  • Visit The Haggin Museum
  • See the Stockton Heat
  • Attend an Annual Festival

Let’s take a closer look at the best Stockton has to offer!

Visit the Miracle Mile

The Miracle Mile district is one of the most attractive historic shopping strips around. You’ll find all the city’s top dining and entertainment options, including great shops, fantastic eateries, and shows from Stockton Empire Theatre and Showbiz Theatre Company.

Pixie Woods

If you’re stuck for ways to entertain the little ones, why not take them on a magical stroll though Pixie Woods? It’s a fairyland right in the middle of Stockton with a Water Dragon play area. You can ride:

  • Pixie Queen Paddle-Wheel Boat
  • Pixie Express Train
  • A Horse on the Vintage Carousel

Over one million visitors from all 50 states have visited since the attraction first opened.

The Haggin Museum

Described as “one of the undersung gems of California,” The Haggin Museum is home to works from famous 19th-century painters, including Albert Bierstadt, Rosa Bonheur, William-Adolphe Bouguereau, and J.C. Leyendecker. Travelling exhibits and public speaking events at common, so keep an eye on the museum’s calendar.

See the Stockton Heat

Stockton even has a professional ice hockey team, the playfully named Stockton Heat. They started lacing up their skates for the American Hockey League’s 2015-16 season, and they play home games right in Stockton Arena. If you’re into sports and feel like escaping the bold California sun, why not take in a game?

Annual Events

There’s no shortage of community spirit around Stockton, which is one reason why there’s such a fabulous array of fun events throughout the year. Some of our favorites include:

  • Zion Chamber Orchestra Festival
  • Stockton Earth Day Festival
  • Concerts in the Park
  • Stockton Beer Week Brew Fest
  • Trick or Treat on the Mile, Stockton
