Local Reviews

My neighbor is very kept to itself. I love that its close to many fast foods and the stores are not far at all. I just like going to parks with my dogs

I like that I have a lot of room in my yard and there are no home-owners associations with inane and arbitrary rules.

I really don't go out a night but I have good neighbors.yhw kids in my neighborhood are good kids .they play outside and their parents take walks with them .I take walks with my grandson everyday.

There are plenty of retail stores, restaurants, fast food restaurants, and other popular businesses within a one-mile radius. My family and I can go to Starbucks, Walmart, Target, and also nearby parks. There are also four schools within walking distance.

It's unique because of the building built by it. Such as old church buildings, museums, old theater. It's also unique because the houses are older so lots of them have a Victorian style structure which I like.

I like the supporting facilities around the community most, including restaurants, bars and entertainment facilities, which greatly improve the convenience of life. The surrounding supporting schools, police stations, high security, rich and complete catering taste, which is deeply liked by everyone

Living in Porterville

Spaniards and Europeans considered the area desolate and undesirable until the 1848 gold rush. Miners, pioneers and schooners then arrived in search of wealth. While many failed in their endeavors for gold, some discovered the richness of the soil and established farms. The railroad constructed a route through the area four decades later, which brought more residents and encouraged industrial growth. Industry remains a major economic contributor today in the community that boasts about 55,175 residents.

The spectacular location of the community beckons for you to escape the surroundings of your neighborhood in order to explore what the environment has to offer. Within the >Sequoia National Forest is the Sequoia National Monument. Some of the largest trees on the planet thrive here. The famous Boole Tree stands 269 feet in height and has a circumference of 112 feet. The forests also feature creeks, lakes and rivers that are perfect for camping, fishing, hiking and hunting. Rent a boat or canoe and venture along the waterways. If you're adventurous, go rock climbing. The game animals that reside here also attract hunters.

If your interests lie in cultural activities, take in a show at the Frank "Buck" Shaffer Auditorium or at the Barn Theater. Learn about local history by visiting Porterville Museum and the historic Zalud House. The museum features artifacts and crafts from the Yokuts Native American culture.

The city spans just under 18 square miles, which makes it easy for you to travel around the community on foot, by bike or private vehicle. The Portville Airport is convenient for leaving or arriving into the community, and the public transit system features bus services within city limits.
