Senior Games

Welcome Visalia Senior Games Athletes! We are so glad you decided to join us here in Visalia for this year’s Senior Games. If you have a little break between events or if you are anxiously awaiting the results, why don’t you check out some of our local hot spots.

For breakfast and a morning stroll, wander around our charming downtown area and find the perfect cafe for you. One of our most unique breakfast locations is Valhalla Restaurant. Here you will find a fabulous assortment of classic Danish dishes including Aebleskivers and Danish pancakes. Other local favorites include: Mama K’s Diner, Bothof’s Bakery, Cafe 210, and Tazzaria Coffee & Tea. Or visit Black Bear Diner, Denny’s or Marie Calendars on Mooney.

Maybe you’d like to relax at a park before your big event. Plaza Park is an excellent place to wander through trees and grassy areas as well as relax around the duck pond. This is a great location to have a picnic out in the sunshine (or the shade). Pack a lunch or visit one of our many sandwich shops downtown before you head over to the park. Here are a few local favorites: The Lunchbox, Picnic Sandwich Shop, Watson’s Veggie Garden, Subway, Jimmy Johns.

Or if you are looking for another weekend event to attend while you’re in town, here are just a few:

  • Kellie Pickler @ Visalia Fox Theatre: March 18
  • Wit @ Ice House Theatre: March 17-19

If you are sticking around for the week between and the second weekend here are some events:

  • Citizen Kane @ Visalia Fox Theatre: March 22
  • #Laugh@Life @ Lamp Liter Inn: March 23
  • The Reunion: A Fantasy Tribute to the Beatles: March 24
