Part of California's fertile Central Valley, Modesto offers the diversity and facilities of a metropolitan city while maintaining an atmosphere of old-fashioned hospitality. With a population exceeding 203,000, it is the largest city and the seat of Stanislaus County. Modesto is in the heart of one of the nation's greatest agricultural areas, the San Joaquin Valley, and a mere 90 minutes west of the valley over the coastal mountain range lies the San Francisco Bay Area. Eastward are the foothills that house the famed Mother Lode gold country. Modesto's mild climate is ideal for abundant outdoor activities, including rafting on the Stanislaus River, hiking and biking on numerous local trails, horseback riding, golfing, and more.
