Visiting California's Central Valley

For many, California is a vacation paradise. Because it combines so many unique and appealing landscapes, cities, cultures, and climates, The Golden State can easily yield unmatched travel experiences. When you plan your next visit to CA, be sure to explore the Central Valley region during the fall or winter for exceptional attractions, and a sterling slate of festivals, concerts, events, and more.

California’s Central Valley stretches from as far south as Lebec all the way north the areas in and around Sacramento. Both Interstate 5 and State Route 99 will yield easy access to the cities, towns, enclaves, and must-see attractions located within this massive segment. Some of the premier, must-visit destinations you’ll want to check out include Bakersfield, Fresno, and Modesto – three hubs of activity, and each yielding quick and easy access to some truly charming neighbor cities and suburbs.

This fall and winter in Bakersfield you’ll find an impressive batch of events and attractions to visit. On October 23rd you can experience the 2nd Annual Big Red’s Buddies Car Show at the Temblor Brewing Company lot. From noon to 5 p.m. catch a glimpse of classic hot rods, modern street racers, and everything in between – make the quick drive in from nearby Taft or Wasco.

Be sure to visit the Majestic Fox Theater in Bakersfield on November 18th. One of the premier voices in country music makes his way into town for a one-night-only show. Sturgill Simpson takes the stage at 8 p.m. to perform tracks off his newest album “A Sailor’s Guide to the Universe.” The drive in from Mojave or Delano will be quick and completely worth it.

In Fresno, the fall and early winter can mean many things, but what is undeniable is this city is Bulldogs territory. Experience some of the most exciting college football in the state when you visit Fresno, as the Fresno State Bulldogs play-out their 2016 schedule.

The drive in to Fresno from nearby Clovis or Dinuba will be swift, and you’ll find Bulldogs Stadium just north of downtown. Some of FSU’s marquee matchups this season include the San Diego State Aztecs on October 14th, and the San Jose State Spartans on November 26th.

In early 2017, Fresno will be hosting one of the premier live concerts of the season. Visit The Tower Theatre on January 27th for your chance to see Jim Messina and his Band live on stage at 8 p.m. Music fans from nearby Hanford and Lemoore are sure to make the quick drive in.
