Located in the center of the Central Valley, the city of Fresno is a
primarily agricultural center. More precisely, the city of Fresno
is the center of San Joaquin Valley where fruit trees, cotton fields
and turkey farms abound.
California visitors often go through Fresno on their way to visit
Sierra National Forest, Sequoia National Park, Kings Canyon National
Park, and the Mammoth Lakes region of the Sierras. The city of
Fresno is a good stopping point en route to the mountains – plenty of
hotels and restaurants for visitors. Roadside stands outside the
city offer a taste of the many seasonal fruits, nuts and vegetables
grown in the valley.
