  • Fresno Art Museum
    In the late 1940s, a group of artists came together to create the Fresno Arts League—a forum for art exhibition and critique. Their inspiration lives on today at Fresno Art Museum, a hub for artistic culture. The museum houses a permanent collection of pre-Columbian Mesoamerican art exhibits by the likes of Norman Rockwell and Ansel Adams. Members get more than entry to the museum; they also receive free access to opening receptions and Conversations with The Artists events, among other benefits.

  • Zip Yosemite
    Zip Yosemite The designers of Zip Yosemite, Experience Based Learning, focuses on adventure and safety in building their courses, but they also take care to look after the environment. The company uses Professional Ropes Course Association–accredited builders, who anchor single cables to trees using an environmentally-friendly system. Using this system, the company can string seven ziplines up to 1,000 feet long at heights of up to 80 feet through the aromatic canopies of incense cedars and ponderosa pine trees. Guides take visitors darting down these single-cable paths and across three suspension bridges. Then, they rappel toward the forest floor at one of two rappelling stations. As visitors glide through the forest, they can catch glimpses of wildlife as well as the Fresno Dome and other natural rock formations.

  • Kern County Museum
    In 1868, a massive flood rolled down the Sierra Nevada Mountains, carrying tree after uprooted tree in its wake. Once the waters receded, those trees and the very confused squirrels hiding in them covered the Kern River valley. That's right where Thomas Barnes found them. So he cut them into logs and built a cabin from the ground up, then moved in with his wife and seven children. Today, that same cabin stands as one of the buildings within Kern County Museum's Pioneer Village. The structures here are relics of several different times and places. Some came from old farms in the area, while others once stood on the main streets of towns—such as the Beale Memorial Clock Tower from old Bakersfield. While their original purposes have long since passed, the buildings still spring to life each time a visitor passes through. It's easy to imagine a blacksmith at work at the Calloway Ranch in the late 1800s, or the faithful tellers who saw The Kern Valley Bank through the Great Depression. A different view of Kern County's history takes center stage inside the museum's other permanent attraction, Black Gold: The Oil Experience. Here, 9,640 square feet of exhibit space reveal how oil forms deep within the earth, as well as methods for its discovery and production. Other displays profile the workers and historical events that ultimately led to Kern County claiming 64% of California’s oil production.

  • Corks & Strokes
    It took canonical artists, from Vincent van Gogh to Pablo Picasso, years to complete their masterworks. At Corks & Strokes, it takes students of all skill levels only 120 minutes. That's because local artists lead the studio's two-hour painting classes, guiding pupils through each step toward completing the evening's painting. Equipment such as acrylic paint, brushes, canvases, aprons, and easels are all provided, though students are responsible for supplying their own snacks, beer, and wine. Besides adult painting classes, Corks & Strokes hosts courses for children, as well as freestyle painting sessions where visitors can stop by and paint independently.

  • Mud N Blood Zombie Run by Hobb's Grove
    The Mud 'n Blood Zombie Run at Hobb's Grove pits runners against 5 kilometers of zombie-infested trails, complete with obstacles and muddy pits to overcome. Runners each wear three flags, or "lives," which zombies on the chase attempt to snatch throughout the course. Runners who lose all their flags "succumb" to the undead plague. Luckily, brave workers have set up medical stations along the course, where runners can renew their flags and grab a swig of water before facing the next set of challenges. At the finish line, those still among the "living" can claim prizes for best costume or join the ranks of the undead at the Dancing Dead Party afterward, which features music, food, and drink.
