Fresno is the 4th largest city in California – larger even than the capital of Sacramento. Who knew? Well, we did, because we have been operating in California for very many years and we are familiar with all of the major cities and many of the smaller ones as well.
Here’s something else you might not know. Fresno? Strange name? Does it mean anything? As it happens, it does. Along the San Joaquin River there are thousands and thousands of ash trees, and Fresno is simply the Spanish for “ash tree”. Trust us: when it comes to knowing what is going on anywhere in California we keep our ears very close to the ground.
Fresno is near enough at the geographical center of California and is surrounded by national parks. To the southeast is Sequoia National Park, to the east Kings Canyon National park, and to the north is Yosemite National Park.
Fresno has very hot dry summers, and mild wet winters so it has a Mediterranean in climate. In the winter it can get down to freezing on some nights, but in the summer there are over 30 days where the temperature goes above 100F.
Lots To See And Do
There is lots to see and do in Fresno, including the Fresno Art Museum, the Old Fresno Water Tower, the Discovery Center, and the Forestiere Underground Gardens. The latter were built by a Sicilian immigrant, Baldasare Forestiere over a period of 40 years until his death in 1946. He created this underground home with countless hours of excavation, providing grottoes, courtyards, stone walls, archways, and pathways over a span of some ten acres. They are a sight to behold.
Of course, all of this is great fun and there are plenty of things to do in your spare time in Fresno, but if you are assigned here on a contract by your employer you will need Fresno corporate housing. Certainly, you could stay in a hotel, but it can get very tedious after a couple of weeks. Not only that, it is expensive. Bar prices are through the roof, and everything is an “extra”. When you use Fresno corporate housing you are in a home from home and you can come and go as you please, exactly as you normally do.
Certainly, Fresno corporate housing is not easy to find, but at Key Housing Connections we have a network of property owners who have trusted us over many years to keep their apartments and homes let on a continuing basis. This means that they get uninterrupted income, while we can offer you housing that you simply cannot find anywhere else because it is not advertised.
Everybody benefits. So if you need corporate housing in Fresno talk to us. We can help you.
