About Modesto

As the county seat and largest city in Stanislaus County, Modesto is one of the crown jewels of the Central Valley. The city’s spirited nightlife was immortalized by the movie American Graffitti created by Modesto native George Lucas in 1973. This spirit is still annually celebrated through the city’s “Graffiti Summer.” In the month of June those who attend experience classic car shows, summer concerts, sensational street fares, and people sporting hula hoops and poodle skirts. The Farmer’s Market is popular because Modesto is an agricultural mecca. Thanks to the city’s rich soil residents enjoy year-round neighborhood fruit stands. And the beautiful weather makes it possible to be outside most days enjoying the city’s 75 public parks. Modesto home students attend Modesto City Schools. The top employers in the area range from agricultural companies to a hotel and hospital. Modesto real estate has tremendous transportation options and is accessible to nearby cities of Ceres and Turlock.
