Located centrally in Northern California, Stockton is the county seat of the San Joaquin Valley. The city is surrounded mostly by farms and vineyards that have helped ensure that the products are organic to its residents’ dinner tables. With its accessibility, residents are closer and within reach the major cities, Sacramento, San Francisco, and San Jose, which is an excellent opportunity for job prospecting. When the financial crisis has caused the city to declare bankruptcy, it paved the way for a rise in unemployment and crime rate. However, the past few years have enabled the metro to rise back again. Home values in Stockton are on the rise; however, the residents are still expected to pay much less compared to a home in its neighboring Bay Area wherein the monthly rents are significantly more reasonable if you are in San Francisco. Most of the city’s residents are immigrants, and some are movers from other states and have been known to be a home of numerous Mexican shops and restaurants.
