New Homes in Modesto, CA

Maybe it's because this is the hometown of director George Lucas, but something about Modesto seems made for the silver screen. Maybe it's the sun-washed California look that characterizes the whole town. Maybe it's the classic small-town feel of the place, with a welcoming arch, a beautiful 1915 railway station and 1930s post office, and exactly one grand, historic mansion. In any case, TV shows and commercials are often shot here.

However, Modesto doesn't just look like a good place to live--it is one! Cinema isn't the only art Modesto is devoted to, either. It also celebrates music with frequent live festivals, like Xclamation Fest, which features rappers and DJs at the height of their careers. SummerFest and the Downtown Summer Concert Series are two more outdoor music festivals that epitomize the town's love affair with music.

We still haven't mentioned the most important industry in Modesto: agriculture. Known for its rich soil, Modesto is also the fruit basket of much of America. That may not sound as exciting as music festivals or TV filming crews, but it's a major contributor to the city's quality of life.

To understand the agricultural industry in Modesto, it might be best to journey into the past. You can do that at the nineteenth-century home known as the McHenry Mansion, on the National Register of Historic Places. This elegant home might seem like a strange place to uncover Modesto's agricultural heritage, but it's not: McHenry was a typical Modesto resident who became very successful as a farmer and rancher. The Great Valley Museum of Natural History will fill in the blanks on how this part of California came to have the perfect climate, soil, and other natural conditions for growing food.

Once you've learned about the city's agricultural past and present, you may start to get hungry. Understandable. A visit to the Modesto Certified Farmers' Market will cure that. Here you will find: honey, apples, lemons, cherries, peaches, grapes, carrots, lettuce, herbs, spinach, peppers, tomatoes, almonds, walnuts, mushrooms, eggplant, and all kinds of cheese. And that's just a start!

As you might imagine, eating out in Modesto is quite an event. For special occasions, keep Dewz Restaurant in your back pocket. It has an excellent wine list and an even better ambiance. Papapavlo's will fill you up when you're in the food for Greek and Mediterranean food. If you're up for breakfast, Huckleberry's, a renowned brunch place, is the way to go. Of course, there are many more restaurants you'll want to try, in a foodie town like this.



Between its lovely scenery, fun atmosphere, and great restaurants everywhere you go, Modesto will make a great home town. The only thing that can improve it is one of our brand-new luxury homes, modular homes, or condos, which will make an excellent home base for you and your family as you explore Modesto.
