About the Central Valley
Located in the heart of California, the Central Valley feeds America as the leading agricultural region of the nation. In the southern part of the valley, oil production also powers the economy, though aerospace, the healthcare industry and alternative energy are emerging as key drivers as well.
We specialize in sunshine in California, with a mild climate year-round. Beaches are less than two hours away, and several mountain ranges and the high desert are even closer. We're two hours north of Los Angeles, and a tank of gas will get you to San Francisco, San Diego or Las Vegas.
But our greatest natural resource is not the bounty of our fields or our oil; it's the people. Bakersfield and Fresno take great pride in our reputation as generous, giving cities who offer metropolitan amenities but a small-town sense of community.
We also offer the most affordable cost of living in the entire state, plus great schools and universities, a thriving arts scene, and family-friendly communities.
