Fresno, known as The Best Little City in the US, exudes rugged nature and adventurous vibe, with plenty of urban parks and boulevards of shady palms. Built on the desert plains of the American West and framed by snow-capped mountains, it was born as a railroad town in the late 1800s. Settled by farmers drawn to the rich soil of the San Joaquin Valley, its proximity to the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains, home to Yosemite, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon National Parks make this destination an outdoorsman`s dream. To experience Fresno County is to see the most outrageous views, eat cream-of-the-crop farm-to-fork cuisine, behold nature`s most inspiring miracles, and to explore the most curious underground dwelling, the Forestiere Underground Gardens.
