Here's an interesting looking bowling alley marquee from Tracy, CA. It's always good to see alleys with the traditional bowl script.

Over in Pacifica, California is the Sea Bowl. The interesting front facade looks part navy ship, part deco, and part department store.

Check out the old marquee for Felton Bowl. The coffee shop is open daily so stop by for a quick couple of games and a cup of coffee.

 

UPDATE 06/05 : The Felton Bowl is no longer around as it was torn down a few years ago. 06-05

This bowling alley and marquee for the Capitol Bowl is still in service. Unfortunately most of the old roadside motel nearby had its signage replaced with backlit plastic in recent years.

 

UPDATE 07/11 : The Capitol Bowl marquee was also replaced in 2009 with a short backlit plastic version. Not much is left of the old roadside signs in West Sacramento these days. 07-11

 

 

Cardinal Bowl

This huge bowling pin advertises the Cardinal Bowl in Sacramento.

 

UPDATE 08/05 : Cardinal Lanes, the bowling alley in North Sacramento, has been closed for years. Many thanks to Dave for update. 08-05
