What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Stockton

There's a park within walking distance with trees and green lawn, grocery stores are within walking distance,

The big yard. It's quiet and friendly neighbors. There is sidewalk and the park are close by. Shop is also close by.

I like the fact that there's never no chaos in my neighborhood. All the neighbors get along with one another.

One thing I really like is the comradery among us residents here. For example, if a family is going through some financial hardships, neighbors will rally together and put together care packages for them, including groceries, medicines and hygiene products. And for the older residents who have trouble doing normal activities, there is always someone willing to provide yard maintenance for them with no charge.

I like that the neighbors look out for each other and make sure the seniors are well taken-care of. While not really walkable, there are some restaurants and shopping near-by as well as medical facilities.

I like the dead end streets, most of my neighbors, The hospital is near by. Shopping is within driving distance. And the train horn in the early morning.

All About

Living in Stockton, CA


Did you know? Stockton was the first-ever city in California to have a name that did not come from a Spanish or Native American origin. It was named after Commodore Robert F. Stockton who played a central part in the capturing of California while fighting in the Mexican-American War. Prior to the name Stockton, people referred to the city as "Tuleburg," "Gas City" and "Mudville.”

In 2002, Sunset magazine named Stockton one of the best places to live in the United States. With over 100,000 trees, the city was also named one of the best tree cities by Sunset not once but three times!

The natural beauty of the area, as well as the abundance of things to do and close proximity to attractions in other cities, makes Stockton a great place to live. If you’re looking for a new home, you should definitely consider apartments for rent in Stockton.


Stockton is a hidden treasure. It’s a beautiful city with safe neighborhoods, natural beauty and interesting attractions. Some areas of the city have an urban vibe, while others still have a small-town feel to them.

Apartments in Stockton run the gamut from nice and affordable to expensive and luxurious. Here are some of the best neighborhoods in the city for apartment dwellers.

  • Brookside: The middle schools in this area rank #7 in the city. Overall, residents give the Brookside neighborhood an A rating for its schools, teachers and the diversity of the area. The area hugs the Joaquin River, so if you get an apartment on the western side of the neighborhood, you’ll get some pretty great views!
  • Civic Center: Approximately 8,000 people live in this neighborhood, which is made up mostly of renters. Schools in the area rank really well, making it a great place to raise kids. The walkability score in the community is nearly 70, one of the highest on our list.
  • Downtown: About 30 percent of the population is made up of households of up to two people, while the remaining 70 percent is made up of households with up to six residents. The average commute is less than 30 minutes. The walkability score is 56 and the bike score is nearly 60 — making this a great part of the city to explore and run quick errands on foot or bike.
  • Downtown Stockton: Residents say the city has a lot to offer renters in the way of amenities. The walkability and bike scores are both 59. While you’ll likely need a car or public transit for longer commutes, there’s still quite a bit to see and do on foot.
  • Lakeview: The Lakeview area is renter-friendly. While rent here is higher than the national average, it’s lower than downtown Stockton, as well as other cities in California. The neighborhood doesn’t have a high walkability score, so you’ll need access to a vehicle to commute. Thankfully, though, the average commute is less than 20 minutes.
  • Lincoln Village: This neighborhood has the #2 ranking for best place to live in Stockton. Nightlife, diversity and public schools all get high marks. Parents say it’s a great place to raise a family. Residents also say the community is classy and contains many high-end boutiques and restaurants.
  • Pacific: Do you love taking outings to the park? Then, you need an apartment in this neighborhood. There are at least three incredible parks (including Victory Park) where you can play games, workout or just enjoy a slow, leisurely day in nature. Also nearby are multiple medical centers, including St. Joseph’s Medical Center and St. Joseph’s Behavioral Health Center.
  • Spanos: If you’re looking for a more residential, suburban feel, Spanos is the neighborhood for you. Residents appreciate the safety, well-lit streets and sidewalks that make getting around easy and safe. It’s a dog-friendly neighborhood, too! Nearly 90% of the residents say you’ll need a vehicle to get around, whether for your commute to work or to run errands.
  • Upper Hammer Lane: Residents who live in this neighborhood give it high ratings for affordability. While the average commute is under 30 minutes, residents in the area also appreciate that you can do plenty around the city on foot or bike (walkability score = 65; bike score = 66). Unfortunately, parents in the area aren’t satisfied with the local schools, so if you have or plan to have kids, you might want to consider another neighborhood.
  • Weston Ranch: Do you travel throughout the state for work (or play)? Then, you should consider the Weston Ranch neighborhood which is located just 10 minutes west of the Stockton Metropolitan Airport. The area is also clean, well-maintained and safe. Residents have plenty of sidewalks to get their morning exercise or take an evening stroll after dinner.

  • Victory Park: In addition to picnic areas and barbeque pits, Victory Park has an art and history museum. If you’re a music lover, you’ll want to visit the park each Wednesday evening in the summer for their free concert series.
  • Barkleyville Dog Park: Located on Feather River Drive, Barkleyville is the first off-leash dog park in Stockton, with four acres for your furry friends to roam.


Just two hours away is one of the most well-known National Parks in the U.S.: Yosemite. The park is famous for its stunning views and gorgeous wildlife.

An hour and a half away is Lotus, CA, just one of the locations to meet up with friends and family to go white water rafting. All-Outdoors California White Water Rafting has multiple rafting options for all ages and skill levels.
