Start your trip by immersing yourself in local Visalia culture with a performance or movie at the Fox Theatre. This 1930s theatre is located downtown and makes for a great activity to couple with a night out to dinner. Check their Website before you go so you know when your favorite performer will be on stage.
The most famous of the parks around Visalia, Sequoia National Park, is home to some of the largest sequoia trees and only a 45-minute drive from downtown. This is a perfect destination for an outdoor enthusiast! Anyone who isn’t in the mood to drive can opt for the shuttle from downtown Visalia for easy access to the major locations in the park.
After all the exploration, head to Visalia Adventure Park for an afternoon of fun. This pay-as-you-play park has something for everyone–18-hole Miniature Golf, bowling, Go-Karts, Batting Cages, Bumper Boats and a variety of arcade games.
Calm down from your adrenaline-rush and take a stroll beneath the oak trees in Mooney Grove Park. A Frisbee golfers dream, this park has plenty of shaded pavilions and playgrounds to set up a picnic and relax. If the timing is right, you can catch special events like live music and car shows in the park.
Sports fans and athletes in the family will enjoy catching a baseball game at the Rawhide Ballpark. This old-time, 2,500-seat ballpark is home to the minor league baseball team, The Visalia Rawhide.
For the youngsters, the ImagineU Interactive Children’s Museum is well worth a trip. This museum has over 15 interactive educational exhibits where kids have the chance to role-play and learn about the world we live in.
