Stay close to the best things to do in Fresno, CA

From the Radisson in downtown Fresno, you can walk to events at The Grand 1401, about half a mile from the hotel, or to important engagements in the government district, just across the street. Want to see the area’s incredible natural beauty? The giant sequoias and serene trails at Kings Canyon, Yosemite and Sequoia national parks are less than an hour and a half from the hotel. If it’s too hot for hiking, head to Island Waterpark or Wild Water Adventure Park to cool off in no time.
