A city which began as a stop on the railroad connecting Sacramento to Los Angeles, the town of Modesto, California has since become the 18th largest city in California, boasting a population of more than 200,000. Brimming with history and fascination, Modesto’s main industry is tourism, offering outings to the McHenry Mansion and Museum, or the George Lucas Plaza, commemorating Modesto-native George Lucas and the spot where he filmed his unforgettable film, American Graffiti, in 1973. The film captured the spirit of “cruising” and friendship Modesto has since built its values and ideals on as a growing and influential community. With abundant production of milk, almonds, walnuts and corn it’s no wonder Modesto residents flock to the Farmer’s Market in packs for fresh, local produce. Downtown Modesto takes a more modern approach offering all of the finest services and amenities such as spas and cafes to 5-star restaurants, coffee shops and shopping malls. Modesto is also named a 29-time Tree City USA honoree for their preservation and dedication to their forests, offering an abundant 75 breathtaking city-run parks, only further complimented by the beautiful climate and breeze Modesto families enjoy. In June, people take to warm weather to enjoy Modesto’s classic car shows, summer concerts and street fairs, or for a more serene afternoon activity to one of Modesto’s fascinating museums or theaters.
