Take hiking or shopping excursions in Fresno
From the Radisson in downtown Fresno, you can walk to events at The Grand 1401, about a half mile from the hotel, or to important engagements in the government district across the street. Looking for a reason to leave the city? The giant sequoias and beautiful trails at King 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 Adventures and you’ll be cooled off in no time.
When you return downtown, take time to experience the dining, shopping and nightlife of the Tower District. For added convenience, our hotel offers complimentary shuttle service to and from Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT) and the Amtrak station.
