Blending a modern urbanity with old farming traditions, Fresno is a lovable Californian city that offers a bounty of cultural and rural delights. Although a great destination throughout the year, Fresno is particularly captivating during Spring and Summer.

Cycling or driving along the Fresno Blossom Trail is the perfect way to experience the beauty and plentiful produce of Fresno’s agricultural landscape. The best time of year to follow this 62 mile route is from late February to early March when the fruit and nut orchards it passes through are in full blossom. In later months, the path turns into the Fresno County Fruit Trail, with erected fruit stands selling seasonal produce dotted along the way. In Fresno’s Downtown district you will find the incredible Forestiere Underground Gardens - a California Historical Landmark and a venue that offers a cool escape from hot summer temperatures.

Visitors can only enjoy this unusual and must-see Fresno tourist attraction via an official guided tour.
