“The (Delta) glowed in the living light like a sunset sky – one sheet of purple and gold,
with the bright Sacramento pouring through the midst of it from the north, the San Joaquin
from the south, and their many tributaries sweeping in at right angles from the mountains,
dividing the plain into sections fringed with trees.” 
 John Muir

Right in our back yard, the Delta offers a plethora of recreation activities such as walk, bike, hike, kayak, boat, and fish. It is also a great place rich with history, diversity, arts and culture. Through Visit Ca Delta, presented by the Delta Leadership Program,  Antioch received “Best of the Delta 2017” in several categories.
