Great family friendly city with good academics nearby and a lot of family owned business to try out! Also located in good area where it's close to the beaches and snow, great for trips and day trips. Downside is not a lot of attractions here or nearby so may have to travel a bit to get to more popular and touristic areas.

Overall Riverbank is a great city. I wish there were more family oriented places for entertainment. I love the schools and the community is always very kind and helpful. The crime rates are low and the schools are good. The restaurants are really good but we need more variety. We need a community garden and more technology in our schools.

Housing is good, there are some areas that need improvements but overall the neighborhood are really nice. There are big stores like Target, save marts, kohls, etc but I feel like we don't need more retail stores. We need to expand the agriculture and farming. A lot of fields were destroyed to build houses and stores but we need to stop that. We should have more farms.

I really like how nice everyone is and helpful to one another neighbors. Everybody gets along and does their daily work and errands with little faults with the police or government. The school system helps the low income students and families, as well as the disabled community to it's greater extend. The community gives back in many ways with the donation booths, parades, and funded charities and sports. In all it's calm and a clean place to live and strive in.
