The city is situated in the center of the San Joaquin Valley in Central California. People proudly refer to themselves as "Visalians." Visalia is nicknamed the "Jewel of the Valley" and is considered to be the Gateway to the Sequoias.

The town of Visalia was established during the year 1852, and is considered to be the first permanent inland settlement between Los Angeles and Stockton within the Sequoia Valley. Located a couple of miles away is the tallest mountain range within the US, the Sierra Nevada. Visalia is also the closest city to the Sequoia National park. Giant Sequoia trees, one of the largest living things on earth, could be found here.

The economy in Visalia mainly comprises agriculture, in particular: grapes, olives, citrus, cotton, and nursery products.

There is one drawback to living within Visalia is that it is in close nearness to the Pacific Ring of Fire. There are approximately 10,000 earthquakes which hit the Pacific Ring of Fire every year. There have been no major earthquakes that have ever hit the city, though it does feel some of the aftershocks. Luckily, the majority are too low of an intensity to be felt. Practically all areas within the San Joaquin Valley are at risk to blind thrust earthquakes. Some parts of the city are susceptible to floods.
