The Sequoia Regional Visitors Council membership includes Chambers of Commerce, Visitor Bureaus, private businesses and government agencies dedicated to promoting tourism in Tulare County and adjacent mountain communities. The Sequoia Region is located in the Central San Joaquin Valley, approximately 185 miles north of Los Angeles and 225 miles southeast of San Francisco. The area encompasses countryside towns and cities that offer visitors unique shopping and dining experiences, seasonal fairs and festivals, antiques, museums, boutiques, murals, historical districts, art galleries and candy-makers. The area is rich in agriculture including dairies, cotton, cattle, citrus, olives, grapes, walnuts as well as many other fruits, vegetables, and grains. Many of the products from the Sequoia Region are marketed around the world, and cottage industries are also becoming well known nationally and internationally.

In addition to being famous for its agriculture, the region is blessed with magnificent natural resources and is home to the spectacular Giant Sequoia trees. Some favorite (and famous!) places to visit include the Sequoia National Forest, Giant Sequoia National Monument, Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks, Lakes Kaweah and Success, Mountain Home Demonstration State Forest, Balch Park, and areas managed by the Bureau of Land Management.

Sequoia National Forest, named for its mighty Giant Sequoias, offers an incredible array of visitor delights. The forest was created by Congress in 1908 under President Theodore Roosevelt, known for his interest in conservation. Elevations range from 1,000 feet in the foothills, to peaks more than 12,000 feet in the rugged back country. Spectacular scenery, diverse terrain and unlimited opportunities for outdoor activities await visitors to the area.

An icon of California tourism, the giant sequoia tree (Sequoiadendron gigantium) stands as an awesome display of natural wonder. With a diameter of 35 feet, the Boole Tree is the largest tree in any National Forest in the United States. Standing 269 feet high, it has a circumference of 112 feet and is located just north of Converse Mountain on the Hume Lake Ranger District.
