Ben Lomond Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
In the San Lorenzo Valley, nestled in the redwoods is Ben Lomond. Named by an early Scottish immigrant who missed his homeland, Ben Lomond is a warm and inviting community with a highway running through it. Highway 9 is the lifeblood of the San Lorenzo Valley connecting all three Valley towns (Felton, Ben Lomond, California, and Boulder Creek) with the outside world. Ben Lomond is home to the Park Hall where the Mountain Community Theater puts on plays several times a year. It is home to Highlands Park which hosts the annual Highland Games Festival. Local color is on display at establishments like Henflings, Ciao Bella, The Sequoia Retreat Center www.sequoiaretreatcenter and The Tyrolean Inn with their annual Oktoberfest. All this in a scenic valley with a river running through it and gorgeous Redwood trees all around. Well worth a visit.
