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.

Forestiere Underground Gardens

Fresno's best kept secret, The Forestiere Underground Gardens. Built over a century ago. A hand-built network of underground rooms, courtyards and passageways reminiscent of the ancient catacombs. Unique fruit producing trees, shrubs, and vines growing underground -- some over 90 years-old... -Ancient Roman architecture - arches, vaults and stone-built walls -Underground micro-climates -- temperature variations of 10 to 30 degrees -Underground home of Sicilian visionary and self-taught artist/builder Baldassare Forestiere The Underground Gardens are the life-long devotion and hobby of Baldassare Forestiere (1879-1946), a Sicilian immigrant who came to America in 1901 to escape the iron rule of his wealthy father and pursue his own dreams.  The Gardens are a subterranean complex of patios, grottos, and garden courts interconnecting with passageways that encircle the living quarters of the self-taught artist and builder who sought to escape the brutal heat of Fresno summers. Forestiere patterned his underground world after the ancient catacombs, which he so admired as a boy. Arches and passageways dominate the underground landscape while the stonework provides stability and beauty.  But unlike the dark catacombs that protected the remnants of the lifeless, Forestiere designed well-lit courtyards and grottos to bring forth the radiance and vitality of life. No plans were put on paper; each room and passageway originated in Forestiere’s mind as he worked.  With the simple tools of a farmer—a pick, a shovel, and a wheelbarrow—the young immigrant dug, chipped, and carved the unforgiving hardpan land for 40 years (1906-1946) in his spare time.  By the time he was 44 years-old, he had excavated and planted over 10 acres. But the humble immigrant’s genius did not stop there.  Incredibly, Forestiere planted multiple varieties of fruit-bearing plants at different underground levels.  Oranges, lemons, grapefruits—many on a single tree—as well as more unusual varieties like kumquat, loquat, jujube, strawberry, quince, and dates could be easily plucked from the surface by simply bending down.  Wine and table grapes also grace this sanctuary, and dangle lusciously in great clumps every-where---truly an oasis in a modern-day desert of pavement.

Castle Air Museum

When the closure of Castle Air Force Base was announced in 1994, a group of dedicated enthusiasts in the Atwater-Merced area formed a non-profit organization called the Castle Air Museum Foundation, Inc. Their purpose was to assume custody of the collection of aircraft. It was their dream to build a museum in which faithfully restored historic aircraft could be exhibited for public enjoyment. Castle Air Museum represents history in a way the whole family can share with our awe-inspiring majestic warbirds.  To stand under the wing of the Convair RB-36H Peacemaker or the Boeing B-52, you can imagine the sky around the bombers filled with enemy fighters!

Colonel Allensworth State Historical Park

A town built on hard work

A century has passed since the founding of this unique town dedicated to the dignity of the human spirit. Although the centennial celebration is now a part of history, there are still plenty of opportunities to come learn about Colonel Allen Allensworth and the courageous group of families and individuals who believed they could create their own version of the “American Dream.” Come experience the inspiring story of the people who came to an isolated spot in the southern San Joaquin Valley to build a place of their own—a place where hard work, dedication, and faith would allow them and their children the opportunity to control their own discrimination-free destiny. The most important building, historically and in the memory of Allensworth pioneers, is the schoolhouse. It was in use until 1972 and is furnished as it would have been on a school day in 1915. An audio presentation is available on site.  Also important to the education of Allensworth's citizens was the Mary Dickenson Memorial Library, about 200 yards north of the school.  Colonel Allensworth's residence is furnished in the 1912 period. It contains items from the colonel's life in the service and the ministry. A small display of farm equipment is a reminder of the Allensworth economic base.
