Right in the center of California lies the city of Fresno, the fifth largest city in the state and cultural hub of the Central San Joaquin Valley. With over 80 different nationalities represented, the city is home to some of the best cuisine each culture has to offer. On Fresno’s West Side alone, visitors will find a host of excellent dining options for authentic fare, including Chinese and Italian.
Triple A Burger
Right in the heart of the west side of Fresno, down the street from Edison High School, lies Triple A Burger, self-proclaimed ‘Home of the West Side Special.’ The popular West Side Special consists of a juicy quarter pound beef patty topped with a generous helping of pastrami, a split hot dog, a fried egg, lettuce, and tomatoes all between two soft hamburger buns. The special even includes crispy crinkle-cut fries and a drink. They also have a number of Asian-inspired dishes and a wide variety of ice cream and milkshakes, but the burgers are what this place is best known for.

Pete’s Teriyaki House
Behind Tahoe Joe’s Steakhouse in northwest Fresno lies the hidden gem known as Pete’s Teriyaki, serving up delicious beef or chicken teriyaki and vegetable tempura six days a week. Many loyal customers come multiple times a week for the special fried chicken plate in particular, as it also comes with fluffy white rice and crispy vegetable tempura. The portion sizes are huge and the food is all cooked very fast, all for a great price! You can even get extra of their homemade sauce at a low price if you want to add more to your food or take it home.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
