Nostalgic Tour of Old Antioch Riverfront, Surviving Idyllic Delta Oasis

Credit Antioch, one of the older Delta downs of Contra Costa County,  for preserving much of   town   as it was 50 or 75 years ago. No sleek ‘techy’ buildings  and concrete jungles here, just old roads and pastoral settings  largely unchanged from a slower, more peaceful time.  Escape the rat race by visiting the riverfront and Marina in Antioch Ca . CLICK HERE for directions to El Campanil and nearby Riverfront Delta (all within a half mile stretch)

Humphrey’s restaurant, no longer active but a reminder of good times and the infamous Delta whale who won the hearts of locals. Parked cars belong to  people visiting parklands and nearby boating dock
