Opening Day at Daffodil Hill

Daffodil Hill, near the small town of Volcano in Amador County, is home to thousands of beautiful flowers each spring.  Opening day was late this year with the flowers buried under snow until just a week or so ago.  Finally, on April 1, the early blooms were available for viewing.

For the next few weeks visitors will be treated to thousands of beautiful flowers.  Admission is free.  

In the nearby town of Volcano, you can stroll among its historic buildings and have lunch.  The Union Pub is open for lunch on Saturday and Sunday and for dinner from Friday through Monday.  Since it is owned by the same folks who own the best restaurant in Amador County, Taste in Plymouth, the food is bound to be good.   The St. George Hotel offers Sunday brunch in its restaurant and lunch in the Whiskey Flat Saloon on Saturday and Sunday.  The restaurant services dinner Wednesday through Saturday.

If you would like to take a private tour from San Francisco that includes visits to Daffodil Hill, Volcano, and the nearby wine country in the Shenandoah Valley, contact Blue Heron Custom Tours and Travel at (866) 326-4237 (toll free) or
