I live here - and contrary to popular opinion, there's a lot to do. Best thing about Fresno - Its a short drive to everything. Wildflowers and casinos (15 minutes) Boating and fishing (30 minutes) Skiing (90 minutes) River Rafting, Yosemite (120 minutes) the Ocean (150 minutes) San Francisco (180 minutes) There is good calendar of events at www.fresnofamous.com

Hanging out in Fresno at the Tower

The best place is the Tower district - Fresno's half mile of culture. Primarily populated by artists, bohemians, and people too poor to live in San Francisco; the Tower district's centerpiece its the Art Deco Tower Theater on the corner of Olive and Wishon Avenues. Don't be confused by the Water Tower in Downtown Fresno - although it does look cool, it has no district to call its own.

In the Tower District you WILL NOT find big name retailers, except for Blockbuster and a Starbucks. But you WILL find performance venues (the Starline, Club Fred, Tower Theater), 20+ restaurants with award winning cuisine (Veni Vidi Vici, Daily Planet , Rousseau, Senses World Cuisine, Livingstones and many others); 2 theaters (Roger Rocka's dinner theater and the Second Space) several galleries, a microbrewery (Sequoia Brewing Co) and some neat gift shops.

For a list of events in the Tower, visit www.towerdistrict.org
