Hidden Gems | KCET
Tustin is famous for its World War II blimp hangers, but this vibrant community has other hidden gems and architectural marvels. Huell spends the day exploring the city, starting off at the Tustin Area Museum for a little history lesson. He also visits a blacksmith, stops by the Wooden Indian for a haircut, and grabs lunch at a local BBQ joint.
Watch this episode of "Visiting."
Huell goes to the 1997 Basset Hound Picnic, sponsored by the Basset Hound Club of Southern California. Watch as the dogs are judged on longest ears, best howl, and saddest face.
California's rich history has been documented in many ways, but the tradition of quilting is an expression of California life through beautiful and intricate pieces of art. Join Huell as he visits an exhibit of California quilts covering a 100-year history and the Foothill Quilters who keep this tradition alive.
Sea Shadow is a futuristic vessel built to test new naval technologies, especially signature control -- better known as stealth. Follow Huell to Navy Pier in San Diego for an extraordinary tour.
Huell visits Lily Farms and Quicksilver Ranch. Lily Farms is the home of the happy chickens. These are free range chickens whose eggs are the best. Quicksilver Ranch is the home of some very sweet miniature horses.
Huell first met John Nese -- aka the "King of Pop" -- back in 2000 when he did a program about the 250-plus vintage soda pops he sold in the store. In this special update, we'll discover that the store's inventory of vintage sodas has not only doubled in size, but now also includes classic candy bars. The real joy of the story, however, is finding out how his family has changed and grown since the first visit.
