The first stop on this trip will be a visit to the Rosie the Riveter World War II Home Front. This is a National Historical Park located in Richmond.  The park preserves and interprets the legacy of the United States home front during World War II; including the Kaiser Richmond Shipyards, the Victory ship Red Oak Victory, a tank factory, housing developments and other facilities built to support America’s entry into World War II.  In particular, the role of women and African Americans in war industries is explored and honored. 


The final destination will be a visit to the Oakland Museum of California where lunch is available at the Blue Oak Café.  The featured exhibit at this stop is Altered State: Marijuana in California. The Oakland Museum is the first museum to showcase an exhibition about the policies and social issues surrounding marijuana in California today. There will be time to explore the rest of the Museum’s three stories including an exhibit about the impact of bees and tiny insects.  The permanent Gallery of California History is also well worth a visit.
