The Visalia View

Spring Break Fever!

It’s the time of year when we get frantic calls from local residents pleading for our help.  Spring break means out of town family visiting for up to a week and/or families looking for ‘stay-cation’ ideas to help pass the time.    Your Visalia Convention and Visitors Bureau is here to help!

Top 5 Things To Do in Visalia during Spring Break

Bravo Farms Tree House5.  Head out to Bravo Farms in Traver to marvel at a seven story tree house that was entered in the Guinness Book of World Records as the Tallest Real Tree House.   While you’re there, play some mini golf, sample their cheese (if you haven’t had Bravo Farm Cheese you’re missing out!) and chat with their parrott Pancho!

 

DSC_44624.  Explore the Tulare County Museum of Farm and Labor.  A field trip favorite, this museum explains our counties important role in agriculture then and now.  From hands on displays to interactive videos, this is a favorite with young and old.  Insider tip: take a picnic lunch and enjoy Mooney Grove Park afterwards.
