What Bert Has To Say About Merced Metro Area

Merced has played a role, for the past 125 years, as a sleepy agricultural and transportation center and a travel gateway to Yosemite National Park. But in 2005, the long-awaited University of California Merced campus was finally opened, which should over time greatly influence its role and character and bring positive growth. Aside from the University and its 2100-acre campus northeast of town, Merced is a typical Central Valley town, with a pleasant if somewhat mundane character. Retail and residential growth are well-planned and attractive.
