Are you considering relocating to a new city or town within the San Joaquin Valley? This area is ripe with history, and in select places, small town charm and a pace more suited for those who are considering the journey, not just the destination. Take Dinuba, California, for example. It’s packed with parks, museums – the Alta District Museum is housed in a restored railroad station – and is only 90 miles from the famed Yosemite National Park and 25 miles from Fresno. Living in a small town has it perks like being in close-knit community, less traffic, fewer crowds and a more general sense of calm.
Originally named Sibleyville after engineer James Sibley, Sibleyville was built around a Southern Pacific Railroad depot the during the late 1800s. After a dramatic iconic western shootout, Sibley and a gentleman named W.D. Tuxbury devoted more than 240 acres for the development of a new town.
Today Dinuba in Tulare County represents a diverse population of approximately 25,000 people and is a welcome affordable housing option. The average commute time for those who live here is a quick 20 minutes, and for those with younger sets, the many elementary and middle school feed Dinuba High School – go Emperors!
Steeped in agriculture, thanks to the area’s fertile soils and warm climate, major employers in this area include Fruit Patch, Family Tree Farms, Apio Produce and Ruiz Food Products. Additionally, there is a Best Buy distribution center nearby.
