As part of the family of one of America's most trusted automotive brands, Goodyear Barnett's Tire Co boasts a team of ASE-certified mechanics who can diagnose and repair most any automotive ailment. Their preventive maintenance services help keep cars healthy, but they can also clean up engines, steering columns, exhausts, and other systems that have fallen into disrepair. For their clients' convenience, they provide WiFi in the waiting room and overnight drop-off for cars that just need to get out of the house for a little while.

With just an inch of space separating pavement from pedal, the go-kart drivers at Willow Springs Racing zip around the facility's tracks, getting hands-on experience in beginner- or advanced-level racing techniques. Entry-level drivers can get behind the wheel of a 4-stroke Honda engine, which allows them to approach speeds of up to 50-mph while learning such basics as trail braking, sliding, and how to program the kart's pre-set radio stations. More advanced drivers, meanwhile, can climb into 125cc shifter cars and hit speeds of up to 100-mph or take control of full-sized Formula vehicles in courses designed to prepare racers for competition.
The Sequoia Shuttle whisks its passengers from Visalia to Sequoia National Park, a 400,000-acre nature preserve that houses General Sherman, the largest tree in the world. During rides, an informational video prepares riders for the natural wonders ahead, ensuring that the trees’ height doesn’t intimidate insecure basketball stars. Once in the park, visitors choose from three free in-park routes, which provide easy access to campgrounds, parking lots, and landmarks such as the Crescent Meadow and the Giant Forest Museum. The Sequoia Shuttle cuts down on the exhaust fumes and noise pollution that private vehicles inject into the park atmosphere, preserving a peaceful environment where critters can roam and trees can nurse their woodpecker-induced concussions.
