Living in Stockton

Located in California, Stockton can be found in the San Joaquin Valley as one of the largest cities in the area. The city is known by its nickname of "California's Sunrise Seaport" due to being one of two inland seaports in northern California, with the other located in San Francisco. The city has much to offer in terms of attractions and things to do as well as plenty of beautiful scenery along the waterfront. Expats living in Stockton are able to enjoy attractions such as, for example, the Haggin Museum, which features a number of artworks by well-known 19th and 20th century artists, the Children's Museum of Stockton, as well as a number of other attractions. Expats living in Stockton will also be able to take part in local festivals such as the Asparagus Festival and the San Joaquin International Film Festival. Additionally, the city offers plenty in terms of live music, theatre and sport, with baseball being the most popular.

Moving to Stockton

The cost of living in Stockton is low compared to other cities in California, making it a popular location for people to move to, with plenty of options for housing in terms of both renting and buying. Stockton’s location in the Central Valley means that it benefits from a Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and mild winters whilst most of the city’s rainfall tends to occur throughout the autumn and spring. The city’s location at what is known as the ‘crossroads of the Central Valley’ means that accessing the rest of California by road is easy. In order to get a better idea of what life is like for an expatriate moving to Stockton, expats should join InterNations where not only can they take advantage of the website’s many features, such as for example the Expat Magazine, but also interact with fellow expatriates in order to network, socialize or maybe even ask for advice and share information about Stockton and California.

Working in Stockton

Stockton’s economy was once routed in agriculture, but as the city has developed, it has come to rely on a number of other industries. Consequently, expats hoping to be able to start working in Stockton could find opportunities in areas such as telecommunications, manufacturing and others, whilst the city is also a popular location for businesses looking for close links to San Francisco, but cheaper land costs. Expatriates seeking work in Stockton may further find opportunities in areas such as public services, healthcare and education as well as areas such as retail and leisure, with the city being home to two major malls. To get more information about finding work in Stockton, expatriates would benefit from signing up to InterNations and using the platform in order to connect with other global minds who may be able to offer useful insights about working in Stockton as well as provide information about other topics such as housing, education, culture and more.
