Located in the heart of California's fertile Central Valley, the city of Modesto is famous for its rich soil, mild weather and friendly residents. With the cities of San Francisco and San Jose as well as Yosemite National Park and the Pacific Ocean no more than a two-hour drive away, Modesto is an ideal choice for both commuters and families. Although it has all the amenities of a large city with a population of over 400,000, Modesto residents are proud of its small-town atmosphere and place a strong emphasis on maintaining close community relationships.
Modesto offers a wide range of recreational activities including boating and fishing on the nearby Stanislaus River, an abundance of wide-open spaces and numerous hiking, biking and horseback riding trails. Modesto's strong school district is supported by the nearby California State University at Stanislaus, and will become even better with the future arrival of the University of California at Merced campus.
