A proud, family-oriented community deep in the heart of Merced County
, California, Los Banos is more than just another city. One large neighborhood made up of friends and families, the hard-working people of Los Banos preserve the character of this small-town with their own warm personalities and warm, welcoming outlook. Originally spelled Los Baños, meaning “the baths” in Spanish, the city is named for a nearby spring that feeds natural wetlands in the western San Joaquín
Valley. The extensive wetlands of the area support a variety of wildlife habitats and sustain the Grasslands Ecological Area, home to rare California Grasslands Habitat. It’s no surprise Los Banos residents and families enjoy a variety of fishing, hunting and bird watching in their spare time with the proximity of the San Luis National Wildlife Refuge which includes the Kesterson Unit, East Bear Creek, West Bear Creek and the Blue Goose Unit. Served by the Los Banos Unified School District, the City of Los Banos, and the Los Banos Municipal Airport, residents are only a 2 hour drive from the booming metropolises of San Francisco and Sacramento, and 1 ½ hours from the Pacific Ocean, perfect for a weekend or day trip with the family.
