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

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

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
