If you like to be active, Modesto will let you keep busy. With several reservoirs and lakes in the area you can sail, jet-ski, sun bath or rage on a wave runner. There are two private clubs with tournament tennis and over 20 public courts. Run or Cycle…wow you’ve options that take on trails, country roads, metric centuries, and more. There’s a marathon and cycling event. And, golf that includes one of Northern California’s premier private courses and great public golf.
And, if you like life on the water you’ve got options. Sure, you can bass fish in the lakes or you can fly fish on the rivers. You can kayak or raft down the Tuolumne with the spring runoff or just hike the countryside and plan a great picnic. And, get this, you can watch the salmon spawn from the areas bridges every November…and that’s not something you will see in many places.
