Did They Just Say Fresno? US Airways edition


Eyes in the friendly skies will be looking down on Fresno a little bit more, as our fair city is profiled in the latest edition US Airways magazine.

There are three stories telling the story of Fresno — its history, its modern culture and its landmarks.

No need to be on a plane to read what they’re saying about Fresno. Here are the three stories (note: All are PDFs).
