To help, here’s a few ideas on making sure you enjoy those summer vibes in Bishop… because like Folger’s motto, this season is “good to the last drop.”


By this time of year, there’s a good chance you’ve used nearly all your vacation days or have them set aside for the holidays. That doesn’t mean you can’t take a break. Rather, it’s the perfect opportunity to go on a road trip to Bishop. Regardless if you’re coming from the north or the south, Highway 395 provides a plethora of things to see and do along with what we like to call the “Land Of -est” between Lone Pine and Bishop. To make sure you’re prepared, here’s a few tips on what to pack for that Highway 395 road trip.


Escape the heat and head for nearby alpine lakes – you can really drop 20 degrees just twenty west of Bishop! An opportunity for a little bit of adventure. A chance to dip your toes in the cool waters. To take in the scenery and be surrounded by jagged peaks. Here’s five of our favorites that we aim to hike to every summer. Don’t have enough time? No problem – here are five lakes you can drive to and still experience their beauty.


While technically September 22nd is the start of fall, the unofficial end is Labor Day weekend. Celebrate a summer well lived by heading to the Tri-County Fair. Dance the night away with live music from Luis Angel “El Flaco” and many others. Take in the destruction derby. Hold onto your hats as pros do some serious bull riding as part of the rodeo. Laws Railroad Museum is offering Train Rides this weekend and the Bishop City Park will be the site of the annual Arts & Crafts Show hosted by Inyo Council for the Arts.

So much and more is waiting for you to finish the summer off right.
