Moving to Stockton
We’re thinking about relocating to Stockton because there would be an interesting job for my husband and we’d like to spare the commute. However, nobody seems to know Stockton. Everybody knows where it is, but nothing more. Since we’re also fairly new to the Bay area, we’re not familiar at all with it and anything I can find on the Internet is less than encouraging (high crime rate, bad schools, etc.) Can anybody give me advise about where to move in Stockton or if it is wise to do so at all? Are there nice areas or towns near Stockton where living is better? We have to make a decision soon, so if anyone can help me, please do! Thanks a lot! ivonne
You might consider Tracy, Manteca, Lodi or Discovery Bay. Each is about 25-35 minutes from Stockton. Tracy has grown a lot in the past years, lots of commuters to the Bay Area live there. Discovery Bay is off Highway 4 and is somewhat isolated. Lodi is where I lived while working in Stockton. It's a nice little town. Hope this helps. Bob
I think they just privitized water there, a policy which may be of concern. Stockton gets really hot in summer. Anon.
