Fresno is a vibrant mix of old and new. Before the revitalization endeavors that began in the 21st century, much of the downtown area was a combination of abandoned buildings and historic architecture. Today, the historic areas of Chinatown and Fulton Mall still retain a great deal of architectural significance.
The nearby towns of Clovis, Sanger, Selma and Madera developed as railroad towns and attract residents looking to live in the outskirts of Fresno. City dwellers eager for some time outdoors can head to Reedley Beach, which borders the Kings River.
