Take a Drive to Reedley
Craig Scharton visited Reedley recently and reports back that it is a pretty awesome place. Take the scenic drive and then spend some time in Reedley’s fantastic downtown, enjoying its small-town charm and quaint shops. There’s plenty of good food and drink to be found, and you can walk it all off on the trail that encircles the city. [Details]
