FLYING: 

FRESNO AIRPORT (FAT):

If you are flying, we recommend that you fly into the Fresno Airport. This airport is small and has limited flights (and sometimes expensive) but it is the closest to the Retreat Center. Fresno (FAT) airport is about 45 minutes away and if you fly in anytime after 3pm, someone can pick you up on their way to the retreat.

 

SAN FRANCISCO (SFO) or SAN JOSE (SJC):

You can also fly into Northern California and road trip about 4 hours south to the retreat center with the Bay Area Group. San Francisco (SFO) or San Jose (SJC) are great airports to fly into on Friday early afternoon (arrive before 2pm), and fly out late Sunday night (after 6pm). Both San Jose and San Francisco airports are about 4 hours north of the retreat center. #roadtrip
