Stanislaus County Vacation Photos and Information

Stanislaus County Travel


Stanislaus County is located in the Central Valley Region of California, the farm belt of the state of California and the nation. Cities in Stanislaus County include Ceres, Hughson, Modesto, Newman, Oakdale, Patterson, Riverbank, Turlock, and Waterford.

When driving through and snapping photos of the countryside, there are miles of farms during your trip. Surrounded by Merced, Tuolumne, San Joaquin, and Santa Clara Counties, a recent survey found that there the homes in Stanislaus County are the most affordable of anywhere in California. While the demographics show that around 300% of adults do not have even a high school degree, and only 14% have a bachelors degree or equivalent college education, those numbers change often as this county grows and becomes a bedroom community for San Francisco / Silicon Valley.

Interstate Highway 5 passes through the county as the busiest freeway in California. While the drive through the region from the highway can seem barren and boring to those driving for hour upon hour, there's much agriculture along the road,  and you'll often be treated to views of orchards, farms and even fruit falling from trucks along the highway. On one trip through Stanislaus County, my car was soaked with a purple substance from a truck passing by and spilling some of its crop contents. I surmise it to be grapes, probably for wine, and as I stopped at a gas station to grab food and fuel, the flies loved whatever turned my Toyota from pearl to purple color.

Another interesting thing to look at as you drive through this central California region include the California aqueduct that follows the highway along its trip from Northern California to Southern California.
