Day By Day Itinerary:
Day 1
Sunday, 4/18/2021 - Welcome to the Wonder Valley Ranch Resort!
From our departure points this morning we’ll travel by deluxe motorcoach into California’s fertile Central Valley. Following a morning rest stop and a stop for lunch on your own, we’ll continue into the scenic foothills of the Sierra Nevada. This afternoon we’ll arrive at the Wonder Valley Ranch Resort, the 75-acre, western-style resort nestled amongst mature oaks and sycamores in the picturesque Wonder Valley east of Sanger. While this is California’s oldest guest ranch, it features all of the modern amenities that we expect from deluxe hotels with all the benefits of a serene and secluded location. This all-inclusive, fun-filled resort in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, features a nightly hosted “happy hour,” hearty meals and original entertainment that often requires your participation! The resort features comfortable accommodations, paved walkways with antique lamps, gorgeously manicured grounds and attentive, friendly service provided by the amazing Wonder Valley Ranch Resort staff. We’ll enjoy a historic walking tour of the Ranch followed by a hosted “happy hour” and delicious dinner. We'll then recall memories of warm family gatherings while sipping hot cider or cocoa gathered around the campfire with a singing cowboy. We top of the day aboard a wagon for a horse-drawn hayride with spectacular views of the night sky (weather permitting). (Dinner)

Day 2
Monday, 4/19/2021 - Fresno's "Fruit Trail"
Following an included breakfast at the Ranch, we’ll board the motorcoach with our resort guide for a full day of sightseeing along Fresno County’s famed "Fruit Trail," a collection of family farms, orchards, packing houses and road-side markets amongst the fruit-filled countryside of California’s San Joaquin Valley. Sitting in the shadow of the Sierra Nevada, the Central Valley is blessed with the perfect combination of sun, soil and water to produce an abundance of crops. This time of year, the countryside is normally alive with orchards full of ripe fruit literally bursting with flavor! We’ll experience the bounty and the beauty of the county first-hand as we travel amongst citrus groves and vineyards as well as plum, peach, nectarine and walnut orchards. We’ll enjoy an included lunch along the "Fruit Trail" and visit several family farms to learn how the fruit is grown, harvested, processed and sold. And of course, we'll have the opportunity to sample the fruit of the bounty as well! We return to the resort later this afternoon to relax, followed by an included “happy hour,” dinner and original entertainment this evening.

Day 3
Tuesday, 4/20/2021 - Kings Canyon National Park
Following an included breakfast at the Ranch, we’ll board the motorcoach with our resort guide and travel east into Kings Canyon National Park. The dramatic landscape here testifies to nature’s size, beauty, and diversity – huge mountains, rugged foothills and the world’s largest trees! We'll continue to the General Grant Grove (elevation 6,500 feet). Protected by the federal government as part of General Grant National Park in 1890 – one of our nation’s first national parks – this later became part of Kings Canyon National Park. We'll enjoy an included box lunch and take a leisurely, guided stroll along the paved General Grant Tree Trail through the General Grant Grove. You’ll stand in awe as you walk amongst giant sequoia trees that are 3,000 years old, measure 250 feet tall and 35 feet in diameter, with trunks weighing 1,400 tons! The grove’s most famous and largest tree is The General Grant Tree. The second largest tree in the world, this goliath measures 107 feet in circumference – that’s the same width as three lanes of traffic! Also, along this same trail is the historic Gamlin Cabin and the Fallen Monarch, a hollow, downed sequoia. Because of its immense girth, it was once used as a stable for the U.S. Calvary’s horses! We return to the resort with the afternoon at leisure to simply relax in your room or on the patio adjacent to the resort's pond. Or, take advantage of the wide variety of optional activities that are available including a swimming pool and hot tub, tennis, basketball, volleyball, horseshoe pits, a game pavilion with ping pong, foosball and pool tables, fishing, canoeing, archery (additional fee), horseback riding (additional fee) and much more! This evening we'll enjoy the included “happy hour,” dinner and original entertainment at the resort.
