The City of Fresno is smack-dab in the center of the Central Valley and is the home to one of California’s most diverse communities in everything from its agriculture (all 350 different crops) to its population, which is one of the most culturally diverse in the state. Known as the Raisin Capital of the World, three national parks are within a 1½ hour’s drive from Fresno: Yosemite, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon. Fresno hosts the annual World Ag Expo, where thousands of people from around the world visit and enjoy a variety of seminars on topics of importance to dairy producers, farmers, ranchers, agribusiness professionals, and the general public.
