Modesto is a vibrant community proud of its citizens, great traditions, educational opportunities, and multicultural lifestyles. Modesto is blessed year round with mild weather and some of the world's richest soil.

Modesto offers the diversity and facilities of a metropolitan city, but still maintains an atmosphere of old fashioned hospitality. Modesto is the 16th largest city in California with a population exceeding 210,000 people and is also the seat of Stanislaus County.

Centrally located on Highway 99, Modesto is easily accessible from throughout California. West of the valley and over the coastal mountain range lies the San Francisco Bay Area, a 90-mile drive from Modesto. Eastward are the foothills that house the famed Gold Country “Mother Lode” and lead to the majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range and Yosemite National Park.

Modesto is located in the heart of one of the greatest agricultural areas of our nation - the San Joaquin Valley. Dairy products, nuts, fruits, wine grapes and poultry products are some of our top commodities. Join us in early spring to enjoy the delightful sights and smells of orchards in blossom. Visit here in the summer or fall harvest seasons and "taste Modesto" at our Farmers Market or at roadside produce stands.

Please take of advantage of our many amenities. Play a round of golf, picnic in one of our many parks, explore our antique shops or visit one of our museums. If you are a little more adventurous try near by river rafting, hiking or jet skiing. Whatever you choose you will have the opportunity to enjoy all that Modesto has to offer.
