Porterville Travel Tips

Porterville Vacation Rentals Offer a Look at History and Beauty

Originally settled by prospectors during the gold rush, Porterville was named after Royal Porter Putnam who came to California from Pennsylvania in 1858 to manage the Tule River Station. Later, it became the Porter Station. With a fast growing population in the area, Royal opened a hotel and store that eventually became the axis for the town known as Porterville. Today, Porterville has a quaint historic downtown district featuring antique stores, boutique and specialty shopping, restaurants, galleries and more. Porterville is home to California's longest running community theatre and hosts annual events like the spring Iris Festival and the Country Fair. Porterville still has a friendly small town atmosphere and is ideal for finding pleasant Porterville lodging for a perfect vacation.

California Valley Vacation Homes are Conveniently Located for Easy Retreats

Porterville is located almost midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, in the western slopes of the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills. The average temperature of 78 degrees allows many people, from all walks of life, to enjoy all the outdoor activities offered at the nearby National Parks.

A Porterville Vacation Rental Means a Fantastic Family Retreat

There is much to do for the entire family in the Porterville area. Besides two golf courses, there are Day Camps, tours and lessons for children at the Squaw Valley Herb Gardens. There are also plenty of parks and preserves where you can enjoy fishing, boating, water skiing, camping and picnicking. There is also Murray Park, the oldest park in Porterville, with its beautiful trees, a pond and the Municipal Swimming Pool. Close by are Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks, which together feature immense mountains, rugged foothills, deep canyons, vast caverns and the world's largest trees. These trees alone are enough reason to find a Porterville vacation rental as soon as possible.
