What Bert Has To Say About Modesto Metro Area


Mainly agricultural in character, Modesto is a “modest” Central Valley town—so named because the dignitary the town intended to name itself after refused the honor out of modesty. The unremarkable downtown has a enough of a small-town feel to be the subject of the movie American Graffiti (although the actual filming was done in Marin County north of San Francisco). But there isn’t much to do and unemployment is high.
