Visalia is a great place to live in California. Not only does it have a lower cost of living than its northern and southern counterparts, but it’s also a hidden gem in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley. While it boasts small-town charm, there is no lack of fun activities and attractions for friends and family from nature to history to culture. Plan some days out enjoying what’s right in Visalia’s backyard!

It’s a great place to spend an afternoon with family and friends.
Visit the Visalia Farmers Market
Every Saturday at the Visalia Farmers Market on Caldwell Avenue, shoppers can reap the rewards of the valley’s fertile land and load up on its bounty. A popular destination for locals and visitors, the market offers a variety of fresh produce, handmade crafts and live entertainment.
Tour the ImagineU Children’s Museum
The mission of the ImagineU Children’s Museum is “Children’s Imagination Comes First: Imagine, Explore, Learn” which translates into a fun and educational day out for kids of all ages. The museum offers interactive exhibits on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), as well as art and culture. Kids can learn about dinosaurs, climb a treehouse and create their own art. Fun everywhere!
Visit the Visalia Fox Theatre
At the Visalia Fox Theatre, a beautifully restored 1930’s theater that hosts live performances and events, visitors can enjoy concerts, plays and movies in a historic venue. The theatre was built by Wiliam Fox and designed with an East Indian theme including a giant genie and temple pagodas. The ceiling is painted blue to represent the evening sky with twinkling lights.
