The Sanger Depot Museum anchors the town's industrial, social, and cultural history in a multi-faceted display of what life in northern California was like at the time of early settlement. The Brehler Block and the Pioneer Room are two displays that show what the streets and people of early Sanger looked like. In addition, the Victorian Room takes a closer look at what the comfortable life was like for the industrial class in Sanger. The museum also honors the indigenous heritage of the people who first lived in the area, the Yokut Indians. As a bonus, this display shows some of the finest basketry collection in the United States.
Parks, Outdoors, and
Sanger is not shy when it comes to capitalizing on northern California's year round temperate climate. There are over 10 parks available for use and a strong focus on outdoors team sports for all ages, including softball, volleyball, and basketball. Sanger also hosts a yearly Blossom Trail Run in March, which makes it a great place for runners to hone their short distance skills. More of a lone ranger? Try a 13 mile bike ride down the nearby Sugar Pine trail, which is paved and flat. This is also a great distance for running aficionados to perfect that half-marathon time.
Dining and Noshing in
The city of Sanger is an incredibly affordable place to eat that does not skimp on the choices. In the town itself, you will find several low-key chain establishments, but you will also find a surprising number of traditional Mexican and Italian restaurants with a humble but authentic presence in the city. The Mexican restaurants are in and of themselves diverse, ranging from general cuisine to the more eat-on-the-go or casual corner taqueria. For those with a sweet tooth, there are also a handful of ice cream or yogurt parlors in town, such as the local hot spot chain known as Foster's Freeze.
