Carter's Strawberry Resort, Strawberry CA 1960s
Even strawberries need vacation time.
According to this charming 1960s menu cover, when the heart-shaped fruits wanted to relax they went to Carter’s Strawberry Resort, near the little community of Strawberry in northern California.
Owners Dick and Mary Carter operated the resort near the community of Strawberry in Tuolumne County, located on the California State route 108. Strawberry sits at an elevation of 5,326' in the Sierra Nevadas, amid breathtaking mountain scenery and has a post office that opened in 1949.
The fun-loving strawberries relaxed by catching fish, riding horses, swimming and mountain climbing.
Hearty food was on offer for guests on this menu and a surprisingly generous bar including splits of Christian Brothers Champagne for $1.50 and cocktails starting at 60c.
Strawberry, near Pinecrest and Beardsly lakes, has been a mountain retreat for 150 years and still attracts thousands of visitors a year.
We’re not sure when Carter’s Strawberry Resort closed but there are still many other charming places to stay. And if you do go, look out for those vacationing strawberries!
