Visit San Joaquin Valley, California with Mighway

Rent an RV in San Joaquin Valley


There’s a reason California is known as the nation’s fruit basket, and it’s right here in the Central Valley. A land of vibrant orchards, tree-lined back roads and welcoming towns filled with history and culture, this region holds more low-key attractions than the dramatic scenery of the High Sierra or the fast-paced city life of Los Angeles. But there’s value in its simplicity, as traveling through the Central Valley provides a chance to relax, unwind and appreciate the finer things in life. Start your journey in Fresno, which hosts blooming fruit trees as well as an acclaimed art museum and is a great base for exploring what the region has to offer. Then, start enjoying the region’s culinary delights by heading to numerous farm stands, farmer’s markets and vineyards for wine tasting, fruit picking and more. Stop by Bakersfield to experience Basque food and country and western music, and spend some time looking around the art and history exhibits at the Haggin Museum in Stockton. Plan a trip with a rental RV from Mighway, and let the journey unfold.

Places to Visit near San Joaquin Valley


Kings Canyon National Park

A testament to nature's size, beauty, and diversity - huge mountains, rugged foothills, deep canyons, vast caverns, and the world's largest trees. Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks lie side by side in the southern Sierra Nevada, east of the San Joaquin Valley. Visitor activities vary by season and elevation (1,370 to 14,494 feet). The unusual diversity of climates and ecosystems in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks led to its designation as an International Biosphere Reserve. There are 580 reserves in 114 countries that hold this honor world-wide. Humans have traveled or lived in the Southern Sierra for at least 6-7,000 years. In the higher mountains, and also down into the western foothills, lived hunters and gatherers remembered today as the Monache or Western Mono. West of the Monache in the lowest foothills and also across the expanses of the Great Central Valley were a second group, the Yokuts. In the late 1700s and early 1800s, Spanish agents began exploring the edge of the Sierra Nevada Range. Within 50 years or so, trappers, sheepherders, miners, and loggers poured into the Sierra seeking to use the mountains' resources. By the end of the 19th century, San Joaquin Valley communities increasingly looked to the Sierra for water and recreation. In the struggle between all these competing interests, two national parks were born that became known as Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. Today, the parks together protect well over 500 Native American archeological sites and over 100 historic sites. The number of recorded sites grows each year because of project surveys.

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

Giant Forest Museum, converted from the historic Market building, introduces visitors to the natural history of the big trees in these twin parks These parks are monuments to nature's size, beauty, and diversity. The y lie side by side in the southern Sierra Nevada east of the San Joaquin Valley Weather varies a lot by season and elevation, which ranges from 1,370' to 14,494'. .

Tree Log Tunnel

Visitors to Sequoia and Kings Canyon can drive through Sequoia Park's fallen "Tunnel Log" located along the Crescent Meadow Road in Giant Forest. The fallen Tunnel Log of Sequoia National Park came into being after an unnamed giant sequoia fell across the Crescent Meadow Road in late 1937 as a result of "natural causes." The following summer, a tunnel was cut through the fallen log as a visitor attraction. When it fell, the tree stood 275 feet high (83.8 meters) and was 21 feet in diameter at the base (6.4 meters). The tree's age when it fell has not been determined, but probably exceeded 2,000 years. The tunnel, which remains in use today, is 17 feet wide and 8 feet high (5.2 meters by 2.4 meters). There is a bypass for taller vehicles.
