The city of over 100,000 trees is situated along the San Joaquin Delta waterway connecting to San Francisco Bay and Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers. You'll find a number of beautiful residential communities along waterways, with single-family homes only about one-third the price of homes in the Bay Area.

And there's more: Stockton is becoming an even better place to live. A huge downtown revitalization effort is under way as the city undergoes a remarkable economic expansion. Projects along the waterfront include an indoor arena, baseball stadium, hotel and conference center, luxury condominiums, retail outlets and more.
