Living in, or around, the cities of Fresno and Clovis allows residents to bask in over 300 sunny days per year and enjoy a mild climate with an average high of 50s in the winter and 90s in the summer.
Central California is often referred to as the San Joaquin Valley or Central Valley and we enjoy the benefits of a rich agricultural history and our current status as the number one agricultural producer in the nation. Our valley produces a wide variety of food sources (more than 350) that feed the world; some of our largest exports are milk, grapes, raisins, almonds, and tomatoes. We enjoy locally run farmer’s markets year round where we can pick the freshest food possible for our families and enjoy an unmatched taste of quality produce.
Fresno is the fifth largest city in the California with over a half a million residents and a wonderfully vibrant and diverse culture. The city of Clovis blends beautifully with its larger neighbor Fresno. Clovis’ population sits just under 100,000 and enjoys a rich history.Recently ranked as the Best City in California for Young Families, Clovis has award winning schools, close-knit neighborhoods, and a wonderful community of locally run businesses that provide all of the services and shopping you could ask for. Fresno and Clovis both boast some of the best and most affordable housing markets in California. Whether you prefer an urban loft in Fresno’s downtown area, a sprawling house in the country, or an excellent suburb community; we have all the choices you could ask for here.
In your free time, be prepared for an amazing adventure in our community and California at large. Fresno and Clovis claim the distinct pleasure of being perfectly situated at the base of three of our country’s beautiful national parks Yosemite, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon.
