Movoto, an online real estate brokerage based in San Mateo, has released “20 Things You Need to Know about Stockton Before You Move There.”
It was “21 Things” before numerous Stocktonians pointed out the Asparagus Festival is no longer.
The writer did a good job. S/he’s dead right about gems such as the Miracle Mile, the Haggin and Tepa Taqueria. And s/he beat me to Sakura Japanese Market, which I now want to explore.
Significantly, the piece accurately perceives Stockton as “a city on the rise.” “Stockton was hit pretty hard by the financial crisis but now the city that can’t be kept down is getting back on its feet,” it says.
If they get that in the Bay Area, so much the better.
