Need to find an address in Manteca?

Then the Manteca Visitors Center might have just what you need.

They have free Manteca city maps available to residents and visitors alike that drop by the visitors’ center at 1422 Grove Avenue near the bell tower in The Promenade Shops at Orchard Valley complex. The visitors’ center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The map was a joint effort of the City of Manteca, Manteca Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the Manteca Bulletin with support from advertising businesses

The map is also available at City Hall for residents and various hotels for visitors. Some 10,000 maps have been made available for free distribution.

“It is great for visitors and residents alike” noted CVB Executive Linda Abdelt. “We get a lot of people who come to tournaments at Big League Dreams and stop at Bass Pro that want to know how to get to other places in Manteca including downtown. The maps are the first step toward putting wayfaring signs in place to help visitors get around Manteca.”

Abdlet noted city residents – newcomers and longtime both – who want to access various municipal recreation programs now have a map that lists the locations of all city parks, the Tidewater Bike Path and other separate bikeways, as well as where various amenities are located such as the Spreckels Park BMX track. She added that longtime residents also benefit from the maps in several ways including trying to locate garage sales in newer neighborhoods with streets that they are not familiar.

“It (the map) also contains a lot of information of what Manteca has to offer both visitors and residents,” Abeldt added.

There is also a secondary map that shows the distance to nearby attractions ranging from Old Sacramento and the Napa Valley Wine Country to Yosemite Valley and San Francisco along with website and contact information for additional details.

The Visitors Center also has the CVB’s Manteca Visitors Guide - a magazine that tells visitors of attractions and how to access them - as well as the Manteca Chamber of Commerce’s “Manteca” magazine that touches on the advantages and attractions of living or setting up a business in Manteca. Both magazines are free.

The Visitors Center also offers numerous free brochures on other Northern California attractions as well as Manteca businesses.
