Highway 99 runs through Modesto, which makes it convenient for commuters who travel toward Sacramento or the Bay Area for work. Congestion is not as progressed as the bumper-to-bumper hold ups in the Los Angeles area, however; delays do sometimes slow commuting.

In addition to easily accessible freeway access, residents have the option of using public transportation. The Modesto Area Max busing system offers a variety of services to those who rely on public transportation. The Greyhound Bus station is also located in the downtown area and offers bus trips for people who are looking for transportation outside the area. This is a great alternative to flying and price of airline tickets.


Galletto Ristorante a fine-dining Italian restaurant serving local ingredients that represents rustic Italy. It is one of the pricier restaurants in the area.

Tresetti’s World Caffe is a lunch and dinner favorite among locals because of the great food and friendly atmosphere. The small layout makes for a cozy setting and that is inviting.
