Top 5 Weekend Get-Away Ideas for Fall Travel

dsc_1395-resized-moro-rockFall is the perfect time for a weekend get-away. The kids are back in school, tourists are back to work and many places that were swamped with visitors are now pleasantly quiet. Here are a few suggestions for a long weekend vacay in Visalia (just a few shorts hours from LA and SF)  that will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed.

  1. Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks: with fall foliage and fewer visitors, the Parks are a wonderful, peaceful place to spend a weekend.
  2. Taste The Arts Festival: On October 15, artists will line the streets of downtown Visalia with amazing artwork. Meet the artists, stroll the streets and enjoy art in all forms.
  3. Taste Makers: On the same weekend as Taste the Arts (see what we’re doing here!) the Taste Makers event happens. This is an emerging artist music festival. Listen to music, maybe have a beer or two and enjoy the last of the warm weather.
  4. Pickle Ball Tournament: October 21-23. If you haven’t heard of this sport that is surging in popularity, come out and see what all the excitement is about. Or if you play the game and want a challenge, sign up to participate.
  5. Halloween at the Cave: So we know that #1 on the list is Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park, but really amp up your trip with a visit to Crystal Cave the last week of October. You will enjoy special tours that are extra spookie!!!
