Visalia is located in the heart of the agricultural San Joaquin Valley in California. Visalia is the gateway to a number of national parks including Yosemite, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon. The Sierra Nevada Mountains paint the backdrop to this vibrant cityscape. Built on a rich agricultural history, there are a number of historic buildings to explore as well as Victorian houses. This semi-arid climate allows for plenty of sunshine, and mild winters with some rain. The area does often suffer from air pollution and atmospheric inversion, but with the efforts made in recent years, the city hopes to see improvement. If you are an adventure-hungry travel nurse who wants easy access to some truly amazing outdoor playgrounds, check out Kaweah Health Medical Center.
