Fresno: California's New Metroplitan

Fresno is on the rise.

Fresno: California's New Metroplitan

Fresno is a beautiful agricultural city located in the heart of California. The city is booming with prospects and is a melting pot of rich and diverse cultures. Not many will know what or where Fresno is, but it will soon gain popularity after its great revitalization process.

The Community Revitalization Department noticed the downtown area of the city was slowly losing activity. Neighboring shops and restaurants were going out of business, and the area became quiet. In 2010, the department began working proactively towards revitalizing the area with efforts focusing on tourism, historical landmarks preservation, and the city’s nightlife.

In addition, the community of Fresno has gathered in setting up events and attractions to bring in more excitement to the area. While celebrating the diverse culture and heritage the city is known for. Since these efforts, downtown Fresno is now flourishing with hundreds of new residential homes, community programs for both children and adults. It is also a new attraction for several tech startups and talented entrepreneurs to rise. Such as Bitwise Industries, the mothership of technological education, collaboration, and innovation, have made their home in the city.

So next time, when you plan on adventuring across California, add Fresno to your list. Who knows, it could be the home of your new business, a place to make new friends, your next home, or your next vacation destination.

clock indicates that it is free time
