Tuolumne County, CA - Despite the Rim Fire, favorite family destinations are still open in Tuolumne County. The Tuolumne County Visitors Bureau wants tourists to know the area is still open for business.
Bureau spokesperson Lisa Mayo says, "We'd like visitors to know that most of Tuolumne County is still open and is looking forward to your business. Favorite family destinations like Columbia State Historic Park and Railtown 1897 State Historic Park, downtown Sonora, Groveland and even Twain Harte Mini Golf are all open. Restaurants and shops throughout the quaint historic Gold Rush towns of Tuolumne County are also open and look forward to serving you."
Mayo gives this summary below of what visitors can expect when they head to Tuolumne County:
• You will immediately notice the outpouring of support for the many heroes battling this blaze. You will see this support in a number of forms: a homemade banner hanging over the highway, "Thank You Firefighters" written on a car window or a line of firefighters waiting to be served a good homemade meal in someone’s yard or at a local park.
• You will see firefighters – give them high five or a thumbs up – they’ll appreciate it!
• You will see some smoke depending on the time of day. Air quality has been an issue in the morning hours, although for the past couple of days, it’s been somewhat clearer. The smoke has been dissipating by noon, making way for bright blue sunny skies. Each day gets better as containment grows.
