At El Rio,

we explore beautiful Modesto for exciting things to do and see. We might have lunch at Huckleberry’s on a Monday to enjoy “southern cooking with a California twist” or visit Antique Warehouse to treasure hunt every other Thursday. There is always something fun to see at Crows Landing Flea Market, just a short distance from El Rio.
