I love my hometown. I grew up in Clovis, which is located in central California. It is considered a small town close to Fresno but is a relatively quiet and lovely place to live despite the poor air quality. Clovis is known as the "gateway to the sierras" and I often take the short drive up to Yosemite or the various nearby national parks and lakes. Overall, Clovis is a great place to raise a family and adventure!

Clovis is the best place to live in Cali based on quality of life including cost of living, schools, traffic, environment, and proximity of national parks, ocean, and LA and SF. We moved from Chicago to live in sunshine and are not disappointed!
We have lived in Clovis for 10 years and have always felt safe. The neighborhoods are well maintained and look beautiful in the spring time
Both our children attend Clovis USD schools. We have always had good relationships with faculty and staff at the schools. Our youngest is still in elementary school but our oldest has attended elementary, middle, and high school here. Overall, we have been happy with the quality of each phase.
There are lots of biking and walking trails to use throughout the city that also connect to neighboring Fresno.
Old Town Clovis has several activities throughout the year that the whole family can enjoy. Every Friday night during the summer, there is a large Farmers Market. A smaller one continues throughout the year. There are numerous parades that we enjoy taking the kids too. There also some more adult oriented events including beer and wine walks. The vendors and businesses are locally owned and we are proud to support them.
