There are worse places to live outside of Antioch, California. The city has its fair share of Section 8 housing (stereotypical visions of unkempt lawns and dilapidated homes). Holidays like the Fourth of July and New Year’s seldom go by without sounds of gunshots ringing along with illegal fireworks. However, there are pockets of neighborhoods that cling to the idea of wholesome values. Neighbors who lookout for each other, people pick up trash off the streets, whether outside their home or not. I would like to see a revitalization of local government. My mother built a park in the downtown area of Antioch. My father help set up the playground and my little sister's hand-print was painted on the jungle-gym. A few years ago, some bored teenagers decided that it would be fun to set the playground on fire. I think there should be a focus to encourage community involvement and youth activities. Shaping up youth upbringing is going to help build Antioch into a stronger, safer community.
Review Antioch
I have lived in Antioch for most of my life and it has been a wonderful place to live. Antioch is a very vibrant and fun place to live. We have wonderful community centers and other public facilities that cater the community. Antioch is great because of its diversity. This allows the community to connect with all types of people. The schools here are nice and provide students with a well-rounded education. Overall, Antioch is a good place to live.
Antioch is a suburb of San Francisco. There is a rich history dating back to port economies and coal mining. Though the current experience in Antioch may vary, there is a small town feeling in a larger town for the East Bay. The locals know each other and there is access to almost everything one could want, especially if you're willing to drive an hour. Any direction can take you to the forest, the beaches, a mountain, the central valley, it's a cool place to be.
