Changed Perception of Downtown Fresno
It’s a “scary” place. There is no entertainment there. There is so much crime. There is absolutely not parking. These are some of the concerns I heard about while inquiring about going to Downtown Fresno. All the negative things I heard turned out to be wrong. After attending an event called “Art Hop” in Downtown Fresno, I was amazed of how many people come to this event. There were many local artists displaying their art work through-out various locations and store fronts. As I walked and looked at the art work, I also looked around at the buildings in the surrounding areas. There is a new residential place being developed. There are many new businesses that have opened Downtown. There will also be about a dozen more opened by the end of this year. There were also many fun restaurants and bars to hang out in.
Not once was I bored. There is so much to do there. I did not notice any crime at all. As far as the parking, well there was so much parking that I could have drove my car to every location I visited and parked in front of the buildings I visited. There is also a spiral parking lot that you do have to pay for parking. The great thing about this is that if you go to a restaurant or bar, they will validate your parking ticket and parking is FREE.
