Anybody live in the Central Valley, CA? I need your opinion.

How bad is the air pollution really? I've been offered a job in Fresno and in Modesto--I'm leaning toward the Modesto one just because I've heard you can chew the air in Fresno.

Opinions? I have never been to Cali except on vacation which was SF Bay Area.

You can put in the zipcode you want to know about and compare it to other cities, etc. Also see who the big polluters are in the area.

Hello Carly. I live in Lemoore, its about 30-40 minutes south of Fresno. I don't think its as bad as you think but on the other hand I have been here for about 13 years now so maybe I am just immune to the air now. Maybe you should come check out the area first and decide which you like better. I think I would like Fresno better than Modesto, just because there is probably more to do in the Fresno/Clovis/Visalia area. Got any more questions you can ask them here or PM me also. Another person that would be able to give some advise is Nnola, she is on here all the time so maybe she will chime in as well.

I live in the Fresno area. Clovis to be exact. I am NOT from here though. I have lived in many areas of the country. I don't think the air quality is that bad at all. I am from the northeast (Portland,ME and Boston), have lived in Ft Lauderdale. Most recently lived in LA- Redondo Beach. I really don't notice a huge difference. My allergies are just different.

And I totally agree with the above... i would much prefer Fresno over Modesto. But that is just me. Coming from someone who cried when i found out we were moving here for a job. It is much better than i originally thought and getting better over the 3 years i've lived here... shopping, restaurants,etc. Now if they would only get a Nordstrom instead of just Macy's I'd be fine

The heat in the summer is pretty horrible though.... 95-105 most of the days June-Aug. Very dry heat though.

Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions.

i live in Clovis too (fresno county).. i've also lived in fresno. (same thing except we pay more tax in clovis )
it sucks here..but modesto sucks even harder.
the air SUCKS BIG BALLS HERE! very bad for anyone with allergies.
that being said.. i've been here since 1979 (moved here from southern california) and i'm still alive, so i guess it's not that bad
