"Small town in central valley"

I spend 8th grade through a couple years of college in Lemoore. It is located about 30 minutes from Fresno, CA.

Lemoore is a great place to live if you have good friends. If you dont it can be pretty boring. There just isnt that much to do. Even with all of the recent additions...well...the one recent addition of a movie theater. But that was a huge addition! The great thing about Lemoore is that it isnt all that far from other places, so if you cant find anything to do there, you can probably find something to do in the next city over or within 45 minutes.

Lemoore is located near a military base. The lemoore Naval Air station is only a few minutes drive from the city. If you go out in Lemoore or any surrounding area, you are sure to hear talk of "Navy Guys." There is nothing wrong with Navy Guys, its just something people like to point out. There are a lot of other groups in Lemoore. There is a large Portugese population as well as large Filipino and Latino (primarily Mexican) populations. There are various festivals that are put on by Portugese groups during the year and there are also festivals put on by Filipinos.

Lemoore high has an ongoing rivalry with the high school in the next city over. This rivalry is typically highlighted during football season when Lemoore and Hanford High battle it out over the "Milk Can." Its kind of funny. Speaking of milk, the central vally is pretty much farm country and there are plenty of farms and ranches in the outskirt areas of town. Some days when the wind is right, you can actually smell the cow manure in the air.

But in all honesty, lemoore is a good place to be. There are jobs with the state of california in one of the many prisons within driving distance. There are plenty of schools to teach at, including a community college that is pretty fairly new. There are jobs further into other cities like Fresno or Visalia...and plenty of car pools to join. There are a few bars, with Mr. Bills being an area favorite. There is a starbucks now, and a walgreens, there is even a skate park. It really has a lot to offer if you take advantage of it.
