Stanislaus County is in the Central Valley of California. The county seat is Modesto. Stanislaus County is within a day's driving distance to San Francisco, Sacramento and the Sierras. Like much of the Valley, it offers activities for every type of person. Cities within the county provide everything from river rafting to quality art and culture events to Agri-tourism tours. Culinary focused visitors will find much to do, see and taste! Family-oriented activities and events occur in every community of Stanislaus County throughout the year.

Modesto, the largest city in the County, was immortalized in the 1973 George Lucas film American Graffiti. The award-winning film captured the spirit of cruising and friendship on 10th and 11th Streets in 1962 and led to the revival of 1950s nostalgia that included the TV show Happy Days and the other spin-offs. Ron Howard, Harrison Ford and Richard Dreyfuss starred in the film. The soundtrack was a huge success. Director George Lucas is a native of Modesto, graduating from Downey High School in 1962.

Modesto is one of the birthplaces of modern rock and roll as the roots of Rockabilly music began in 1938 with the Maddox Brothers and Rose. The slap bass technique created by Fred Maddox became the percussive backbeat to "hillbilly boogie" that would become the foundation of Rock and Roll. The Maddox Brothers music became famous from the early broadcasts by pioneering radio station KTRB throughout the 1940s. Fred Maddox's bass now belongs to the Experience Project Museum in Seattle Washington for the significance in music history.

California, the Golden State. It is BIG. If you get to go once in your life time these are "must explore" areas to consider: The Cascades of northern California, the Central Coast where doing the coast highway is imperative, and SanFrancisco and the entire Bay Area. For something entirely out of this world we recommend Death Valley and the Califonia deserts. Of course there are other areas you might like, (a true exploration of this fabulous state can take a life time), so make good use of this site to get around. We also make our entire database available to you on your cell, so if you are on the road use VISNETMP.COM.
