Tulare (pronounced /tuːˈlɛəriː/) is a city in Tulare County, California, United States. The population, as of 2007, is 55,935. Just eight miles (13 km) south of Visalia, it is part of the Census Bureau's designation of the Visalia Metropolitan Area. The city is named for the currently dry Tulare Lake, once the largest freshwater lake west of the Great Lakes. The city's mission statement is: "To promote a quality of life making Tulare the most desirable community in which to live, learn, play, work, worship and prosper." [1] The Stockton seaport is only 170 miles away, and the Sacramento port is 207 miles away. The Los Angeles and San Francisco ports are each approximately 200 miles away, making Tulare a hub or central location for product movement.[2] Despite this,the expression "out in the tules (toolies)", referring to the Tule rush plant that lined the lakeshore, is still common in the dialect of old Californian families and means "beyond far away." [3]



As of the census[4] of 2000, there were 43,994 people, 13,543 households, and 10,753 families residing in the city. The population density was 2,648.2 people per square mile (1,022.6/km²). There were 14,253 housing units at an average density of 858.0/sq mi (331.3/km²). The racial makeup of the city was 56.38% White, 5.02% African American, 1.40% Native American, 2.02% Asian, 0.12% Pacific Islander, 29.09% from other races, and 5.96% from two or more races.
