In this small city, the atmosphere is one that makes everyone feel at home. Although we are considered a city, I see us as a small, tight unit town. I would like to say that everyone knows each other, but that is not the case. However, this is not a bad thing. In fact, I believe its wonderful because every time one goes grocery shopping or just walk around, one meets new people, which always makes it more exciting. I would definitely choose to live here again because of how many close relationships one can create. In our city, there is so much life, yet it is quiet and homey. I love my city and everything in it! Galt will always be my home, and I see so much bright future in it, especially for the generations to come.

Galt is a nice suburban town. It's mostly farmland and nice neighborhoods, though there is some general shopping available. Galt is close to Elk Grove, Lodi and Sacramento (cities with more to offer in terms of shopping and jobs) without being in the middle of a city setting. Generally, it's a very peaceful place to live.
Galt is small town with country roads that lead to beautiful scenery. I have lived here my whole life and I love it! The schools are great and it is a family-friendly place. Great town to have a family in. The only thing I would like to see change is maybe adding a movie theater or some sort of entertainment.
