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.

Devils Postpile National Monument

Devils Postpile National Monument is a unique geologic feature, formed by an eruption of basalt lava over 100,000 years ago. The lava cooled uniformly, leaving surface cracks and resulting in thousands of vertical basalt columns. Downstream from Devils Postpile National Monument are the amazing Rainbow Falls. Falling over a sharp 101-foot drop, Rainbow Falls sends colorful rainbows in the mist. The best time to experience the rainbows in midday, when the sun is highest. Scenic shuttle bus is mandatory and is fee based.  And if you're not into badass geology, there's more to do in the area than just ponder the odd formations: the massive, 101-foot-tall Rainbow Falls is also protected by the National Monument designation-- it got its enchanting name from the fact that rainbows constantly form in the mist off the churning water. Devils Postpile is also located with the Ansel Adams Wilderness, near the Inyo National Forest, and is along both the Pacific Crest Trail and John Muir Trail. So, if you're really into hiking some of America's most amazing landscapes, then adding Devils Postpile to your trip should be pretty easy!

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

A diverse collection of old warbirds

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!
