General Tips

Nestled in the Central Valley, Fresno County finds itself in prime real estate for two important California institutions: agriculture, and outdoor recreation. Within 90 minutes to the entrance of three national parks, Fresno County is a popular jumping off point to Sequoia, Kings Canyon and Yosemite National Parks. Throughout this beautiful county you'll find acres of vineyards, farmland and orchards - you're not likely to get fresher produce or taste locally grown award-winning wines anywhere else in California.

As well, within Fresno County you'll find a wealth of water activities, parks, shopping centers, museums, historical landmarks, wineries, ale trails and outdoor activities to enjoy. Fresno regularly records three-hundred days of sunshine. Locals take advantage of all that sunny weather to get outside and celebrate, as Fresno County hosts a multitude of festivals throughout the year, from the Fresno Greek Festival to the Clovis Rodeo. No matter what the activity, Fresno County always provides a unique experience for visitors to stay and play in Fresno County, California’s year-round playground!
