  • The Bod-e² Shop
    Art "The Shark" Correa has a history of surmounting life's challenges in pursuit of his business and fitness goals. While earning his bachelor's degree in kinesiology—thereby becoming his family's first college graduate—Art yearned to apply his knowledge toward other people's physical betterment, and gained national certification as a personal trainer. He then used his health expertise to found The Bod-e² Shop, a wellness sanctuary for all fitness levels, and has since trained such elite clients as NFL players Zack Follett and Ricky Manning, Jr. The Bod-e2 Shop functions as an all-purpose workout zone, manned by personal trainers and instructors who run kickboxing, Zumba, and intense boot-camp classes. Private sessions with the trainers can focus on sports-performance or toning goals, providing encouragement with motivating words rather than drill sergeant mantras or shyly suggestive fireworks displays. The gym's roster of advanced equipment has been highlighted on KMPH's Valley Life, and includes core-tightening air benches alongside Jacob's Ladder, a machine whose cycling rungs simulate climbing.

  • Sequoia Shuttle
    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.

  • Valley Oaks Golf Course
    Though it isn't plural by name, Valley Oaks Golf Course is more than just one golf course?in fact, it's three. The trio of classic 9-hole layouts invites golfers to play a variety of 18-hole rotations. Framed by native oak, eucalyptus, and tall pine trees, the three nines test golfers of all levels with narrow fairways and score-ravaging water hazards. That's especially true of the Lakes course?the newest of the three?as a lake comes into play on multiple holes. But these obstacles don't just challenge traditional golfers; they also affect games of FootGolf, a sport that combines elements of golf with those of soccer. The game largely heeds golf rules, though players kick soccer balls?or golf balls they've been pumping full of protein for awhile?into 21-inch-diameter cups. Ensuring the course is up to snuff for FootGolf play, Valley Oaks is an official course of the American FootGolf League.

  • Tommy's
    At Tommy’s, candlelight casts dark wood wainscoting, burnt-orange walls, and stone floors in a warm glow. The elegant eatery—which has been hailed by Frommer’s as “the most creative restaurant in Visalia"—complements its environs with equally haute cuisine. Chefs serve succulent steaks on cedar planks and drizzle them with southwestern flourishes such as tequila-roasted green chilis, poblano cream sauce, and a single cactus tear. Additionally, Tommy’s stocks its wine cellar with an ample wine selection.

  • Visalia Rawhide
    As the Advanced-A minor-league affiliate for the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Visalia Rawhide caters to baseball buffs with professional bat-cracking action and advance screenings of future big-league stars. This year the team celebrates 65 years of play at the recently renovated Recreation Park, an intimate stadium of spherical slinging where fans sit so close to the field that they can call pitches and notice subtle interventions from celestial outfielders. When the players’ endless running, throwing, and sunflower noshing inspires spectators' stomachs to hunger, the park’s three concession stands offer satiation with a bevy of ballpark eats.
