Visiting California's Central Valley

Make your way into the Central Valley of California for a post-holiday and spring adventure. From Modesto to Tracy, or Fresno to Manteca, there’s a wide range of pleasant, eclectic cities waiting for your visit. You can choose to explore the Caswell Memorial State Park in Manteca, hike the Bethany Reservoir State Recreation Area in Tracy, or maybe fly into the Meadows Field Airport in Bakersfield – you’ll find there’s plenty to see and do. The kids will no doubt love a trip to the Fresno Chaffee Zoo, or a visit to the Save Mart Center for a live performance from Carrie Underwood on March 5th.

Fresno, a pleasant and robust city, bustling with activity – California’s fifth largest city as of 2012 – features the kind of eclectic fun most travelers seek. You’ll find a host of excellent live performances during the spring on your Fresno visit. Head to the Selland Arena at the Fresno Convention Center on February 15th for Valentines Super Love Jam – don’t miss The Impressions, MC Magic, Barbara Lewis, and The Intruders. Make the drive in from nearby Selma or Clovis and enjoy a romantic dance with your special someone.

As one of the most popular acts touring the world, Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance pays Fresno a visit on April 10, at the William Saroyan Theatre. You won’t want to miss the “world’s highest grossing Irish dance show,” so make plans to visit the William Saroyan Theatre when visiting Fresno.

Comedy fans exploring Fresno are in luck – May 2nd, you’ll be in line to see An Evening with David Sedaris, the wickedly funny and popular humorist and author. Visit the William Saroyan Theatre for the one-night-only show. For a change of pace from humor, opt for an evening of classic theatre. Visit the same William Saroyan Theatre on March 5th for a live rendition of West Side Story.

Head into Bakersfield on March 23rd and witness – or partake in the festivities – the 18th Annual Kern County Scottish Society Games. The all ages event is a wonderful outing for the whole family full of excitement and Scottish heritage, set at the Kern County Fairgrounds.

Make the short drive from Lebec into Bakersfield, and enjoy the Western Street Rod Nationals, April 26th – 28th at the Kern County Fairgrounds. Even if you’re not a regular gear-head, you’ll enjoy the classic cars and hotrods on display.

Further north, in Modesto, you’ll find pleasant locals, interesting artifacts at the McHenry Museum, and entertaining live shows at the Gallo Art Center. March 9th and 10th, head to the Gallo Art Center and check out Shrek The Musical – a blast for kids and adults.
