Welcome to the heartland of California, the Central Valley. This is the home of California’s farming community where vegetables, fruit, and cheese are as fresh as they come! Around every corner you’ll find fruit and vegetable stands with the seasonal local products, or spend some time picking your own fruit. This is your chance to get a taste of California!
The Central Valley skirts the main metropolitan areas of San Francisco and Sacramento; however, it doesn’t take long to suddenly be out in the middle of lush fruit farms, wineries, and have a taste of small town life. You can drive for miles on winding levee roads and not encounter another soul! However, you will find 300 species of birds and mammals, miles of biking trails, and endless California Delta to paddle or boat through, making this a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts.
