Blossom Trail

Fresno is located in the very middle of California, in the Central Valley. Surrounded by vineyards and orchards, it is a four-hour drive from either Los Angeles or San Francisco and a three-hour drive from Monterey. An hour's drive from Fresno takes you to Yosemite, King's Canyon, and Sequoia National Parks. Fresno has an airport with flights from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Dallas; train service by Amtrak; and bus service by Greyhound.

The Center's staff can help you to find nearby accommodations at varying rates. Or check out the local area guide for hotels, restaurants, attractions, and events.
