Excellent experience! Learned a lot about an this American writer. The museum was very through and I discovered so much more about him by visiting his home. Nice hiking trails there too.

This is the last home of Jack London, as well as the home his wife built after his death, which serves as an excellent museum and overview of his (and her) life and work. Well worth the visit, especially for fans of his books.

I can see why he craved more virgin forest since th he area is quite barren. The history of his novel and the author beckoned me. Glen elken is prettier than most towns in this tree-challenged wine country, though.

This historical park is the site of Jack London who was both a famous writer and infamous man. There are historical buildings and hikes in the hills to enjoy.

Was not crowded at all, hiked to the lake for a good workout. Nice that it was shaded for half the hike as it was hot! Not much to see at the actual lake itself, but pretty nonetheless. Horse riding available.

There really are two tours? The house that was built after Jack London's death and the dream house that burned down, then there is the house that they lived in and this is a separate area. If you bring a picnic lunch you... More
