California Welcome Centers in the Central Valley

Local farmstands, abundant agriculture, tasty produce

Removed from Likes

    Drive through the Central Valley, and you’ll see evidence of how life here has historically revolved around agriculture. You’ll find incredible farmer’s markets, roadside produce stands, and festivals that celebrate local specialties: wine, tomatoes, asparagus, cheese and more.

    In the middle of the state is the California Welcome Center Merced where you can find a vast resource of information about the surrounding area and beyond. Merced is known for its easy 2-hour drive to Yosemite, San Francisco, Monterey or even our state capital of Sacramento. Highways 99, 140 and 59 all intersect in Merced.
