Visalia, C, in the fall, is quite lovely. The weather starts to cool down from the scorching summer heat, making it a more comfortable time to explore the area.  While you won't get the dramatic autumn colors of the East Coast, you'll still see some trees changing their hues. Fall is an excellent time to visit the nearby national parks as the crowds thin out, and you can enjoy hiking, camping, and taking in the stunning scenery without the summer rush. Plus, various fall events and activities welcome in the spooky season.
