Modesto California Retirement

Modesto California

Like her larger neighbor to the north Stockton California, Modesto offers hot summers, cool winters, and the rural ranch and farming style of central California. Modesto's proximity to Yosemite National Park and the mountains of California make it a key travel gateway to some of the best hiking and outdoor recreation in the world. However, the city itself is not considered a major tourism destination.
