Navigating Downtown Fresno
Getting around Downtown Fresno can seem complicated to people who are unfamiliar with the area. With it's one way streets and which way does Divisadero run? As it turns out, Divisadero runs almost exactly east to west. The streets south of Divisadero run at an angle because they are parallel to the railroad tracks.
Another factor that complicates things is the block numbers are distinct from the block numbers in the other parts of Fresno. For example, south of Divisadero on Broadway is the 2000 block. On the other side of Divisadero, you will find the 100 block of North Broadway, even though there was a 100 block of Broadway on the other end of downtown.
Here is a tip from a local, use H Street. It only has three lights on it through the whole area. It's usually free of traffic also.
