Besides offering affordable housing, quality educational facilities and easy access to retail outlets and services, Visalia is alive with community spirit. Visalia offers sophisticated options for accommodations, shopping, theater, live music, and recreation in a picturesque setting sheltered by the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Visalia is the largest city in Tulare County and functions as the County Seat. All county offices are located in Visalia including the County Office of Education and the Tulare County Superior Court. Visalia is also considered to be the gateway city to the breathtaking Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. The two parks are California's oldest, but they have kept up with the times, offering activities for every season and premiere lodging and restaurant options.

Visalia has created the Visalia Industrial Park to provide manufacturing and distribution companies with direct access to State Highways 198 and 99. Because of Visalia's position in the state, 98% of people in California can be reached overnight which is valuable to the shipping and food industries.
