Visit Visalia Summer Getaway


ANNOUNCING THE TOP SUMMER GETAWAY: VISALIA, CALIFORNIA

Visit Visalia Lists New Activities, Venues and Events this June and July


Visalia, Calif. (June 6, 2019) –Visalia, located in Central California with easy access from major

cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, announced its summertime activity schedule today. The

entertainment destination, nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, is the most

robust city near Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks.


The summer getaway announcement comes shortly after the U.S. Travel Association issued a study

stating that 52% of Americans have unused vacation time.


“Visalia is the new go-to spot in Central California,” said Demea Metcalf, Visit Visalia Executive

Director. “Make use of those vacation days and come check out all that Visalia has to 

offer. Whether you want to relax or adventure, we are the destination where you can do both—or

actually—you can do it all.”


This summer, visitors will have a new attraction to add to the growing list. Sequoia Springs Splash

Park, a 42-foot water structure with four slides, will open mid to late-June at Visalia Adventure

Park. The splash park features timed water dumps, water cannons and spinners.


Visalia will host a quintessential, All America Fourth of July celebration on July 3 at the Rawhide

Ballpark. Other events and activities include a full entertainment line up at the Fox Theatre,

Boots Brews and Bacon Festival at the Visalia Convention Center and, of course, any and all Ranger

activities at the National Parks.


The summer activities, venues and events in Visalia suit all needs, whether  

you want to disconnect and get away from it all …  or you want to take the kids for a fun- filled,

family vacation.


“It’s urban enough for people who like attractions. It’s rural enough for people who want to

escape. It’s outdoorsy enough for people who want adventure,” said Robert Lee, 

Board Member of the Visalia Tourism Marketing District and General Manager of the Lamp Liter 

Inn. “People are still amazed that we have a place where they can accomplish it all in one 

trip. It’s the everybody destination.”


Visalia offers hotel accommodations from affordable to luxury, rustic to modern. Just off Highway

198, there are more than a dozen properties.


“Whether you have planned ahead or just hop in the car for a spur-of-the-moment road trip, Visalia

is the perfect place to stay the night and explore,” Metcalf said.  “Our city will surprise you.”


Stop by the Visalia Visitor Center, at 112 E. Main Street, and let the Visit Visalia team curate a

list of activities to fit your desires. Or go to VisitVisalia.com to plan your trip.
