A gateway destination of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, and Sequoia National Forest, Exeter is a quaint art and agricultural community known for its abundant supply of citrus, deciduous fruit and table grapes. The area is beautifully surrounded with snowcapped peaks dotted with lakes, offering some of the finest hiking, camping, fishing, and sightseeing in the state. The quaint downtown district has a charming small town atmosphere, and boasts a beautiful series of murals that reflects the town’s history and culture, a variety of casual and fine dining establishments, and wonderful boutique and specialty shopping opportunities. Local events include festivals, parades, arts & crafts fairs and exhibits, garden walks, car shows, marathons, and more. Learn more at www.ExeterChamber.com.
