Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Fresno area.
Farms and orchards stretch for miles to the west, and Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in the Sierra Nevada Mountains all flank Fresno less than a two-hour drive to the east. Equidistant from the San Francisco Bay area to the northwest and the greater Los Angeles area to the southwest, Fresno is in the very center of California. Snow and water skiing, mountain climbing, touring vineyards and orchards, wine tasting, horseback riding and fishing are among the most popular activities here. Fresno was first settled in the late 1800s by immigrants of many cultures who sought a fresh start, attracted to the center of the San Joaquin Valley by its agricultural potential and variety of natural beauty. More Armenian immigrants, whose descendants fled the early 1900s genocide in their homeland, have made their home in Fresno than in any other city in the country. The array of restaurants and cultural events, resulting from this rich ethnic tapestry, adds an even more compelling reason for making Fresno the focal point of your California adventure.
