Casa De Fruta/Gilroy
I frequently stopped at this huge fruit stand on our way to Gilroy/San Francisco via CA-152. They have the best preserved mangoes in multiple flavors and not forgetting the seasonal fruits. This time – we stopped and checked out what they have for children. They removed the mini zoo attraction which I was not too keen. I discovered they have the Casa de Choo Choo and Casa de Carousel. We bought our tickets at the Sweets Shoppe (Casa de Sweets…I think). The train ride was a mile long around the property…it was fun for adults and kids. We got to see a white deer, buffalo and a long horn. As for the carousel, it was brought over from Venice, Italy, it is a double decker and parents can sit on benches too.
