Cheer on the Stockton Ports from the stands at the city’s Banner Island ballpark. Head to Bakersfield for NASCAR racing at Mesa Marin Raceway. Is golf your passion?

- Zoos & Aquariums — Initially a dumping place for unwanted pets, the Chaffee Zoo, located in Roeding Park, has grown into one of the Central Valley’s finest zoos. The animal preserve features a Rain Forest exhibit where multitude of birds fly and rainforest mammals walk about, Stingray Bay where visitors can touch the underwater creatures and Sea Lion Cove with a 35-foot-long underwater viewing window.

The San Joaquin Fish Hatchery, located 30 minutes from downtown Fresno, is where visitors can learn about breeding and raising trout for stocking nearby lakes, rivers and streams.
