Second, customer service in every place we went into, whether it was a store or restaurant was VERY good, very polite. However no one said hello to anyone at all in the parking lot or sidewalk, however once you walk into the building, was like an attitude change. Not sure about what that is about?
I found out I am allergic to Central CA. I don't normally have allergies but when I got off the plane in Fresno my sinuses filled immediately and just now getting "un stuffed"
Drove into Sacramento to see a friend twice...yea that was interesting, the roads! They are everywhere and everyone was flying...kinda fun.

It was an interesting trip, but I agree, not a destination spot by any means.
Thank you all though for all the info. It was very helpful for our trip! But I have to admit, it was great to touch down back in my TN!
OH! and the Ramada in Merced...stay away! Nasty, we ended up canceling our reservation, got a full refund and went around the corner to the new Hampton Inn and everyone there was super nice and it was a nice place.
thanks for coming back with an update!
