The city of Fresno lies in the Central Valley of California and it is the fifth most populated and the largest inland city in 'The Golden State'. It is the county seat of Fresno County, which was formed in 1856 after the California Gold Rush. Its name in Spanish translates as "ash tree" which features on city's flag. The hometown of the great dramatist William Saroyan is famous for historical theaters, raisin harvests, elm trees, thick fogs, and a Concours d'Elégance.

Fresno is roughly 220 miles northwest of Los Angeles, 185 miles southeast of San Francisco, and 170 miles south of the state capital, Sacramento.
