Fresno – Things to do with your Team

The county of Fresno was founded after the California Gold Rush.  Because of the influx of people into the area, the city of Fresno grew at a rapid pace.

The city got its name from the ash trees, pronounced “fresno” in Spanish, that line the San Joaquin River.  They may not be the red woods California is famous for, but checking out the San Joaquin River and its ash trees is peaceful little trip that the team might enjoy.

While your team is in Fresno, they will have a ton of entertainment options available to them.
