Might be moving to Modesto...
It looks like a career opportunity may be moving my family (my husband, 1-year-old and myself) to Modesto. I don't know anyone who lives or has lived there, and whenever I mention moving there, people wrinkle their noses. Does anyone have any recommendations on decent places to live - either neighborhoods in Modesto or towns in easy commuting distance? I'd love to live somewhere that is walkable, where there are parks, playgrounds, libraries, etc. Basically I'd like to replicate the neighborhood I live in, although I know that's probably not possible...I'm trying to lower my expectations. Ay suggestions would be appreciated!
My husband and I both worked in Modesto. I've lived in Turlock (a few towns over) for 30 years and now live in Lafayette. Do not move to Modesto. If you must move to the area, the best town is Turlock. It's a smaller agriculture town, with good schools and nice families. Turlock is about 20 mins. from Modesto. Email me directly and I would be happy to give you more information about the area. ann
