If there were a single nice thing to be said about living in Winton, California I would have been able to say it, considering that I have lived here for 21 years. Sadly, there's nothing to give a positive recommendation to either visiting or living in Winton. It's about as far from being one of the best areas in California as you can get. The crime rate is scary enough to keep you awake at night. There are no jobs or housing to be found nearby. The schools are terrible. The community as a whole is just broken. It's hard to even get a smile from anyone, even when you are the first to say hello.
If you do find yourself in Winton and are looking for something to do to pass the time, you can visit the Castle Air Museum and see various airplanes from different periods of time, the Stage Stop Gun Shop and Indoor Range, the American Kickboxing Academy, River Journey Adventures for some rafting and kayaking, and the Atwater Marketplace for some shopping. That's just about it. I'm really sad to say that's all this town has to offer.
