Fresno

4.1
Zoos · Gardens · Parks
The only metropolitan hub nestled between three national parks, Fresno makes a surprisingly lively getaway. In addition to unrivaled variety of natural beauty and opportunities for recreation, Fresno vacations offer cultural diversity and plentiful entertainment options. Wilderness areas, country farm trails, lakes, rivers, foothills, and mountain ranges draw outdoorsy types, while museums, artists' studios, gallery spaces, and festivals cater to culture-oriented visitors. For a fun family outing, visit the zoo or cycle along oak-shaded country roads lined with farm stands overflowing with fresh produce. If you like shopping, dining, and nightlife, hit restaurants and clubs of Tower District after dark. Regardless of what you decide to do in Fresno, you're in for a sensory-rich experience. Take stress off the schedule by using our United States attractions planner.
