TASTE News Service March 2, 2021 - Visit Visalia has announced the release of its 2021 Blossom Trail Map, just in time for the annual springtime event.

The seasonal display of brilliant color traditionally begins in Mid-February and continues through March, making it prime blossom viewing time in Tulare County. The map is free and can be downloaded on the Visit Visalia website.

In California's Central Valley, agricultural fields dominate the landscape and Tulare County is the most diversified ag producing area in the world. More than 120 crops grow in and around Visalia in Tulare County.  Those fields that surround the city become awash with color in springtime as the trees begin to sprout their buds.

The self-guided driving tour takes visitors through the county just north of the city where almond, peach, plums and apricot orchards burst forth with their blossoms each spring. Along with the colorful orchards, visitors will see other crops like kiwi, citrus, almonds, walnuts, cherries and more. With a variety of orchards and groves, visitors can see many types of agriculture.

For those headed to the national parks, a quick side trip to experience the spring season of bloom is encouraged. With the Sierra Nevada mountains as a backdrop, capped with snow from recent storms, the Visalia Blossom Trail is an easy route to take towards the park entrances.

Visit Visalia continues to urge Americans to adhere to healthy travel practices—and they say that a socially distant drive is a great way to stay healthy. The Visalia Cares Stay Safe program has a wealth of resources and guidance to encourage safe and healthy travel, which includes wearing a mask, frequent hand washing, maintaining physical distance when possible and staying home if feeling sick.
