Distinguished as one of California's fast-growing cities, Stockton is home to a dynamic, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural population. The city is situated along the San Joaquin Delta waterway that connects the San Francisco Bay Area and the San Joaquin and Sacramento rivers for unrivaled water-sport recreation. The city is proud of its economic expansion and the revitalization of the downtown waterfront district. Professional sports teams, performing and visual arts venues, retail and entertainment centers at the gateways of the city, and opportunities for fine and casual dining are just a few of the highlights. Many of the city's handsome residential communities are located along the waterways for scenic views, and the single-family homes in Stockton sell for significantly less than properties in the San Francisco Bay Area. Boasting more than 100,000 trees, Stockton was recently recognized by Sunset Magazine as the "Best Tree City" in the West. The city has also garnered the coveted All-American City award on two separate occasions.
