Whether you're relocating for work or checking out Fresno State University, you'll love what you find in Fresno.

 

Fresno Attractions

As a California Gold Rush boomtown, Fresno has plenty of historic architecture from the late 1800s. The most notable buildings that remain include the California Pacific Railroad Station, Temple Beth Israel and the historic Fresno Water Tower. The picturesque campus of Fresno State is also popular with locals and tourists who take advantage of the school's free tours. Meanwhile, art enthusiasts and lovers of high culture flock to well-known institutions like the Fresno Art Museum and the Artists' Repertory Theater.
