Stockton is home - 10/30/2019
I moved to Stockton from Lodi. I love it. The people are nice, we moved from a "BORING" tract home in Lodi to a beautiful 100 year old home near the University of the Pacific. We love the variety of restaurants, the minor league baseball team The Ports. The UoP Tigers. We could not afford our home in Palo Alto or Sacramento. But we have a charmed life in Stockton. It is like any large city. I grew up in Los Angeles and it was the same, you had Hancock Park and Los Feliz and you had Compton and Rampart. You just have to know how to navigate a city. We are Read More

Not Surprised Mother Fers - 10/28/2019
Developers are going all in on Stockton lately and home prices are rising there for a reason as a result. Still quite a shady and corrupt city council as is their history but the Police Department is run by a progressive chief that has the crime going in the right direction, but still not enough as Stockton is still quite violent. Education is growing in the city but still lagging behind due to the crime problems. Just an unfortunate culture of familial criminality that gets passed on generation to generation that is tough to combat no matter who's running the city. But there is slow, steady progress starting to spring up in Stockton. Read More

Stockton is a dump - 9/28/2019
I lived here for college, over a 6 year period. There was no redeeming qualities to this city, except the the low cost of living compared to most cities in CA. The air quality is atrocious, mostly due to agricultural, which gets trapped in the central valley because of adjacent mountains. This contributes to the area having an unpleasant odor, which is aggravated in the summer by blazing heat, which is frequently over 100 degrees.. the winters are, cold, dreary and not comfortable, but it does not snow. The crime rate is high and, for the most part, the quality of the townspeople is low. There's minimal career/professional opportunities outside of trucking and agriculture. Almost everyone that attends the University here leaves for greener pastures. There's minimal recreation outlets, unless you leave the city;however there are some worthwhile places within an hour or two driving, such as Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Napa, the CA Central Coast and the SF Bay Area...the University of the Read More

I like it - 9/3/2017
Honestly, I like Stockton. Majority of people I've run into have been super sweet. I dropped some money in a store & the woman behind me let me know I dropped it. Nice selection of stores. Unemployment's high but the colleges seem nice. Everybody has a dog here & those dogs are like their kids, I love it. Another bonus is you're 60 miles from The Bay, like you're literately close to the mountains, city & beach. Read More

Commute to Work - 2/8/2011
These numbers do not reflect the people who WORK in Stockton.
For those living and working in Stockton there is a maximum 20 minute commute, the roads are quiet and almost always trouble free. Riding your bicycle to work is a pleasure, there are no hills.
Stockton is a dormitory town for people living in San Francisco.
Why do you criticize a city, when, people think it is worth the 2-3 hours per day commute to San Read More

Yes, Stockton is a good place to move to... - 9/16/2010
While in the process of looking for a place to settle down (pre-retirement) in which we want more bang for our bucks, the city of Stockton never came up until my better half said "I want to be closer to my sister" (who lives 25 minutes away). I too was mis-informed about Stockton. Just like any place, it has it's ups and downs. Palo Alto is a nice area, but it also has East Palo Alto.

I surprised myself because I like Stockton. We checked the area for almost two months, drove to the nice & bad neighborhoods before making our decision and moved here just two weeks ago, September 2010.

Stockton is getting the "bum rap" because the media likes sensationalized stories. They should also report good things happening instead of reporting just the bad stuff. The neighborhood we are in is very quiet (even on weekends) and diverse. People are friendly and you see families walking/exercising around the neighborhood.


dont move here (they call this place alot of bad t - 8/26/2010

I have lived here my whole life and very worried about my familyliving in stockton. ofcoarse everywhere is bad but this is terrible. 13 and 14 year olds are robbing and killing people. drugs are flowing the streets from corner to corner. a few nice places but slowly being taken over by gang activity.its horrible what i have seen here. gun shots ring out almost every night. dont move into apartments there the worst. ill right more to much to go on now. if you move here put 911 on speed Read More
