Vibrant wildflowers blanket the valley floor, and a dusting of snow still covers the foothills – it’s a glorious time of year.

Ready for a springtime treasure hunt? Check out Hanford Antique Emporium, where you’ll find one-of-a-kind items that are lessons
in history.

A stroll through a quaint town is always delightful, but the experience is that much more engaging when the buildings are blanketed with art. The hamlet of Exeter has harnessed the magic of murals, which present a living history of the area.

Have a hankerin’ for some homemade chili? Check out the Black Pot Cook-off & Cowboy Poetry festival. Watch amateur chefs whip up their best dishes without the benefit of modern-day kitchen gadgets, while local artisans demonstrate industrial crafts of the time. Or savor some sushi at Sushi Kuu, where head chef and owner Albert Utomo has devoted his life to mastering his craft.

The skies may be cloudy, but you can still enjoy a breathtaking view of the stars. The Sam B. Peña Planetarium & Science Center captivates and educates those who wish to immerse themselves in the joy of the cosmos. The facility’s two theaters draw rave reviews from guests of all ages.

And speaking of science, Bitwise Industries is like Fresno’s own Googleplex – it’s helping put Fresno’s technology industry on the map.

Finally, you can celebrate Earth Day one day late (April 23) at one of the planet’s loveliest locales – Yosemite National Park. Admission is free from April 16-24, and family-friendly festivities are planned throughout the day.

Be inspired by spring, and enjoy!
