Among them areRidge Creek Dinuba Golf Club, an 18- hole, PGA- ready golf course and drivingrange opened last year on the city's westside. Then there's shopping, including aKmart department store and the largestSuper Walmart in the Valley, said DanielValencia, marketing specialist for theDinuba Chamber of Commerce. If department stores aren't where youlike to shop, the city has an old down- town district with an assortment ofshops and restaurants, some in build- ings 100 years or older. " The architecture alone is worth see- ing," Valencia said. Speaking of restaurants, Dinuba ishome to about 50, from family and fine- dining establishments that include San- doval's Mexican Restaurant, the SafariClub, Sakura Japanese Restaurant andThree- Fingered Jack's — the latter at thegolf course — to a variety of fast- foodbusinesses that include Panda Express, Foster's Freeze, Carl's Jr., Jamba Juiceand Baskin- Robbins. Dinuba has two health clubs and twohotels along with a public library and asix- screen movie theater.
