Readers recommend: Bravo Farms
The most interesting gasoline stop I’ve ever seen is at Exit 106 on Highway 99 at Traver, Calif., between Tulare and Fresno. Called Bravo Farms, it’s like a small, enhanced Knott’s Berry Farm without the entrance fee. Bring your camera and your kids. There are shops and hundreds, if not thousands, of old artifacts: barrels, antique advertising signs, bicycles, meat grinders, etc. There’s also a cheese factory where you can watch it being made. Don’t forget the courtyard, where you’ll find rabbits, chickens, turkeys, a parrot and an amazing seven-story tree house.
