2017 Travel Guide to California - - CENTRAL VALLEY -

It may be tempt­ing to cover the Cen­tral Val­ley by zoom­ing along on In­ter­state 5, but in­stead, take the slower HIGH­WAY 99—of­ten re­ferred to as “Cal­i­for­nia’s Main Street,” and the very same road the fic­tional Joad fam­ily trav­eled in The Grapes of Wrath. Start in oil-town BAK­ERS­FIELD and head north to­ward FRESNO, MERCED and MODESTO. As you pass from the San Joaquin Val­ley into the Sacra­mento River Delta, take a jog over to In­ter­state 5 to pass to the west of Sacra­mento and into Yolo, Co­lusa and Glenn coun­ties at the north end of the great Cen­tral Val­ley.
