It's Summertime in Tulare County

It's Summertime in Tulare County

We’re back! I am excited to share with you all the great things going on around Tulare County this summer.

Looking to make some great memories with your family? The Row boats are back at Mooney’s Grove every weekend through Labor Day.  For $5 you get a 30 minute cruise. You can rent your boat from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. 

After your cruise stop in at the Tulare County Historical Museum. The museum houses one of the largest Native American basket collections in California as well as artifacts of the pioneer era, agriculture equipment, restored buildings and many other treasures that tell the history of Tulare County. 

Our Step-Up Summer Night Lights (SNL) activities are up and running full swing in 17 communities throughout the County. SNL provides an opportunity for youth and families in rural communities to enjoy activities during the summer months in a fun and safe environment. 

We sometimes forget that Tulare County is home to Sequoia National Park and these stunning trees: General Sherman Tree - the largest living sequoia and General Grant Tree - the nations Christmas tree. The park also offers interesting ranger programs, day hikes, and wilderness trips. 

Enjoy the rushing Kaweah River, but be careful, the rocks are slippery and the water flows fast!

Don’t feel like driving there? Catch the Sequoia Shuttle! For $15 you get round trip transportation to and from Sequoia Nation Park from Visalia.  Once inside the park, you can take advantage of the parks internal shuttle that offers free unlimited service to the major attractions.

Tulare County is the breadbasket of the world and summer is a great time to enjoy our bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Go to to see a listing of a farmers market near you.

So get out and enjoy all the County has to offer and remember, all of you have a part in making Tulare County a great place to live!
