There is a myth that has been told for many generations of how the railroad in California almost prevented Clovis from becoming the thriving city it is today. The myth centers around the city of Clovis, and it being the hub of all transportation into the Sierra Mountains. It was said that plans to have the railroad cross over the Sierras to connect to other major railroads was going to make this the first transcontinental railroad service, bringing wealth and prestige to the town. Since that didn't take place, many residents felt an ill will towards the railroad service and believed that the railroads had something to do with their economic decline. Eventually, Clovis got back on its feet and it has managed to keep its western charm by renovating many of the original buildings in town for a friendly feel.
Enjoy Clovis' Night L
Clovis is home to many bars and grills, offering locals a few great places to get out and enjoy their evenings after a long day or week at work. During the day, the bars and grills are perfect for family dining, but when the sun sets, most of the establishments promote drink specials and encourage their adult customers to come by. Ruby's is one of the few places that can be called a nightclub, but it is officially listed as a sports bar. They play host to several events every month, with their most popular being the ugly sweater contest during Christmas.
