Three Ideas For Spring Break In California’s Central Valley

Posted on March 15th, 2022 by Paul Hill

‘Tis the season for spring break across the state of California! Most college students and families will flock south or to one of the coasts for sunshine and warmer temperatures. Others might venture out to the mountains for skiing and hiking. 

Whether you’re in school, working or doing a bit of both, it’s nice to take a short spring break following the last few weeks of winter.

When Is Spring Break In California?

Most spring break vacations in the State of California are between the third week in March and the second week in April. 

If you’re looking for last-minute ideas to play your spring break trip, then you’re in luck! Our expert guides have gathered three ideas for your last-minute vacation near Fresno, California.

1. Plan A Trip To Yosemite – 

  • As temperatures slowly begin to rise, Yosemite National Park will begin to roar back to life. As the snow melts, flowers and trees will start to bloom, the park’s animals will become more active, rivers and waterfalls will swell, and even more hiking trails will begin to open up. Famous locations in the park like the Mariposa Grove will open up again in April. This is a perfect time to see giant sequoias without having to battle large crowds or apply for a permit to enter the park.
  • If conditions are still pretty snowy for your trip to Yosemite, there will still be plenty to do! Enjoy the last few weeks of winter conditions by snowshoeing, skiing or tubing at Badger Pass.

2. Create Your Own Family Staycation in Fresno – 

  • Rather than venture into the Sierra Nevada mountains or the coast, why not stay put and tour the city of Fresno? Visit the Fresno Chaffee Zoo, catch a minor league baseball game in April, or tour one of the city’s several art museums. We highly recommend taking a tour of the Forestiere Underground Gardens, a semi-subterranean network of tunnels filled with stunning vines, shrubs and other plant life.

3. Plan A Winery Tour With Friends – 

  • For those who want to plan a wine weekend but don’t want to drive up to California’s northern wine country, there are plenty of options inside and outside of Fresno. There are also several limousine services that allow you to hop from winery-to-winery without having to worry about who will drive you there. Learn more about the wineries around this city and plan your tour today!
