Where is Ripon CA


It's funny how people pronounce the name, it's even funnier when you're certain people are going to ask where it is. You can almost bet on it. 

Where is Ripon, CA

Ripon, California is nestled between two decent sized cities (Modesto and Manteca) located in the central valley of California. It's a "sleepy" little town that has grown and is known primarily for it's harvesting of almonds. It's the almond capitol of the world, and has held this title for many years. Another strong influence Ripon has on the economy is fuel. Truck stops in Ripon have acquired and maintained the stretch of real estate from the Milgeo exit to the popular road Jack Tone Road, allowing truckers to either rest for the night, get some dinner or fuel up their trucks as they pass on through to their destinations. This has been a key feature Ripon has been able to provide their visitors.



Where is Ripon, CADon't blink! After you pass over the Stanislaus River heading North, your almost "to" and "fro" this little town. I have to be honest though, Ripon has more going on in it's neighborhood than people might think. It's not all about Almonds and Gasoline and probably deserves a better title than Where is Ripon CA.


Mistlen Park is a fairly large public park that has a water park, softball diamonds, soccer fields, picnic area's and more. It is used for large gatherings and fairs that frequent the town on occasion. There is a lot of history here, churches in the downtown area have been ringing their bells on Sunday since I can remember. The Almond Blossom Parade is a popular attraction also, where a parade sifts it's way through downtown. Schools, shopping, businesses, it has it all.


So if your wondering where is Ripon CA Open your eyes, you might miss something!

I so know where Ripon is.  ;-)   I have family in Hughson, another sleepy little town surrounded by orchards.

Hey Andy,

Thanks for connecting with my by email.  Ripon is a great little community for sure.  I've stopped there a few times to fuel up and the people always seemed friendly.
