dont come here - 8/15/2010
Yes, I must agree with you about Stockton, CA for I still live here do to the fact my mother lives with me and is a Kaiser Member. If it wasn't for that and the fact I work for her through IHSS we would be long gone!! So, far someone tried to break into this old house with a pocket knife and my good friend down the street stopped him. Then my neighbor across the street said she saw a couple trying to break into my car but because we let our dogs out for a potty break (around 2:00pm)it scared them off! Too many homeless keep pressuring you for money don't they know if we have money we would be long gone from here! The little change we have is just enough to get us through to the next pay period, some people have to use the cash in advance. It just isn't fair! My husband let our dogs out at 3:00am to go potty and a man sleeping under a tree next to our fence lifted up his head (spooked my husband) asked him for some spare change. Not too long ago a dead body was found next to the Read More

Stockton - 5/22/2010
Stockton is actually ideally located on the river delta with a deep water port. It is intersected by two major freeways and the temperature is moderate. One and a half to San Francisco or the same in the other direction and you are in the Sierras. However.... Unfortunately we have a very high crime rate and high unemployment. On the positive side, if you know the areas to avoid and times to avoid them, you really are safe. Many nice areas of town and the delta waterways are great for fishing, boating and water skiing. Overall, you could live in a whole lot worse places. The crime I speak of is 99% of the time a victim or suspect who is involved in high risk activities like selling dope or being in a gang.In looking at many other cities across the county I see that many have similar issues. Read More

High Crime Rate - 4/5/2010
I've lived in Stockton since 1962. On the upside, we have a plethora of trees. On the downside, we have one of the highest crime rates in the Read More

Educational Opportunities - 8/25/2009
Stockton has numerous public and private institutions of higher learning. I moved to this city in 1973 to attend the University of the Pacific, a premier private college located in the middle of the city. I have been a permanent resident since 1982.

Stockton has a partnership with the California State University system and has a sateliite campus from CSU - Stanislaus, which is now offering Bachelor's, Master's and soon Ph.D program. The local community college, San Josquin Delta College's main campus is housed in the center of the city and has many satellite branches throughout San Joaquin County.

There is a host of private vocational schools to prepare for a myriad of vocation ranging from administrative clerical, medical, construction, etc. All of this is within a city with less than 300,000 Read More

#1 for foreclosures!! - 4/20/2009
Because Stockton is #1 in the country for foreclosures, there are deals to be found. There are areas of Stockton that have remained in good condition for 30 years, but it seems like the bad areas(meaning people who have no respect for their neighbors and throw trash in their neighborhood, high crime, dilapidation) seem to be encroaching in on them. Culturally, the Bob Hope Theater offers entertainment and Stockton has a hockey team, but what's nice, is that San Francisco, Santa Cruz and the mountains for skiing are all within 2-3 hours away. If you've always lived in Stockton, I think of it as a city that you should move away from once you're an adult. There's so much more out Read More

A depressing city to live in! - 3/3/2009
This is my first posting but I have lived in stockton my entire life. Stockton is a horribly boring place to live, if you are young, single, and looking to find a mate you should move somewhere else. Stockton always ends up on some worst of list. It is hard to find a job unless you are latino or asian. I am not a racist or anything but it's just so annoying to get beat out of a job because you don't speak spanish. Do yourself a favor and live in a city with a lower cost of living and better stuff to Read More

Moving - 2/22/2009
Moving from Oroville to either Jacksonville Florida, or staying in California? Don't know at this time but searching different Towns. I grew up in Walnut Creek, Ca., Too crowded for me now. Sorry not too much help yet, but will be in the future, after we have settled into a new home.
Thanks for your wonderful service.
