Visiting California's Central Valley

While people throughout much of the country shovel the snow from their driveways, the central California valley is as beautiful as ever. Sunny, breezy, and mild days mean opportunities for outdoor adventures abound throughout numerous nearby state and national parks, and communities from Bakersfield and Fresno to Modesto and Stockton welcome visitors with a wealth of special events and family-friendly activities.

Beautiful weather means its a great time to get out and explore the beautiful landscape, and the best way to cover the most ground is by embarking on a scenic drive tour. Countless roadside attractions provide plenty of reasons to stop along the way, and communities like Lodi and Merced make ideal day trip destinations.

Everyone knows LA is a mecca for entertainment, but communities throughout central California boast an abundance of first-rate events and concerts themselves. See Ragtime – The Musical live at the Bakersfield Convention Center on March 10th. Check out rock radio mainstays Breaking Benjamin at the Centre Plaza in Modesto on March 11th. Or hear country superstar Carrie Underwood hit the high notes at the Save Mart Center in Fresno on April 5th.

See some of the best college basketball teams in California battle it out at the 2016 CCAA Basketball Tournament. The Stockton Arena in Stockton hosts the event, which features men’s and women’s teams from UC San Diego to Humboltd State and more across four days.

Meanwhile, baseball fans are gearing up for the return of America’s Pastime – and central CA lays claim to numerous baseball teams. The Stockton Ports play at Banner Island Ballpark in Stockton, the Modesto Nuts round the bases at John Thurman Field in Modesto, and the Fresno Grizzlies roar at Chukchansi Park in Fresno.

And Baseball fans from Lemoore, Hanford, Selma, Dinuba, Exeter, Tulare, and beyond congregate at Recreation Ballpark Visalia for Visalia Rawhide home games. Further south in Bakersfield, the Bakersfield Blaze swing for the fences at the historic Sam Lynn Ballpark. Check the schedule during your central CA visit and catch a game near you – the 2015 MiLB season goes through September 7th.
