I moved to Manteca in 2017. It is a fairly small town with a larger population. It often seems like there are too many occupants for the amenities it has to offer. The trains are a major inconvenience and it was recently released that the train traffic will increase from about 35 trains a day to around 135! The tracks cut through the middle of town and rattle the houses near it's path. There seems to be an above average amount of crime; I can recall a time where there was a police search for a suspect and he happened to be hiding in between mine and my neighbors fences!

I am pretty disappointed with the quality and variety of grocery stores; it would be nice to see a Win Co. or a Whole Foods eventually. The new water park is set to open sometime in 2020, I am hoping that brings more commercial options to the area. I think a major problem is that the population has grown faster than the little town could keep up with.

My whole life I have grown up in Manteca. Transitioning from a small town to a huge city for college was difficult but also eyeopening. Before school I didn't appreciate Manteca like I do now. Growing up in Manteca everyone knew each other, since there isn't much to do Friday night lights are very important, everywhere you go you see one person you know, especially if you are at In N Out. Manteca is in the center of the Northern California Valley so every freeway runs through Manteca which is convenient. Manteca is also the perfect place to raise a family because it is affordable, offers great education, and safe. Recently Manteca has been building many new infrastructures such as a hotel that has huge water slide and warehouses which means many jobs will be available also. I am very grateful to have grown up in a town like Manteca.
Been living here in Manteca most of my life. The older people are friendly but I haven’t had that much luck with some of the young people around my age, a lot of them were not very nice. Maybe it was just the particular neighborhood that I lived in, that wasn’t as nice as it used to be. Not to mention some of the neighbors are horrible where I lived. I was falsely accused for something I didn’t do, and I wasn’t even home at the time. I was in Dublin California with family when the incident happened. I’ve dealt with friendlier neighbors in Alameda county then in Manteca unfortunately. This is just my opinion and experience. I’m not trying to bash all Mantecans even though I have a bad habit of doing so sometimes.
