Overall, Sanger is a nice place to live, especially if you're looking for good schools for your kids. However, because it's such a small town, you will have to drive outside Sanger a bit to find anything fun to do or see. If you are looking for malls, movie theaters, shopping, and dining very close to your house, you're better off looking in the Clovis or Fresno area. Sanger is not a very rich area, so most shopping is limited to Walmart and some local grocery stores, and food options are almost exclusively fast food.

Sanger is a small town with many friendly people and good food. While it isn’t a rich city it is rich with culture. Many citizens are of Mexican decent therefore, Mexican cuisine can be found everywhere. The community at the high school is great and everyone in town can be found at Tom Flores stadium on Friday nights during football season. However, most conservative small towns are prone to homophobia and racism and Sanger is definitely one of those towns.
I believe Sanger is a very nice town filled with friendly people, however, there are no fun activities that stand out and can attract people from surrounding cities. When I lived there, I found that, if I was looking for an enjoyable time, I had to travel towards Fresno or other cities that had more to offer. However, I must admit that Sanger High School felt like a very prestigious institute that does an excellent job with preparing students for the rigor of college. Also, I liked that, since Sanger is a relatively small town, there was never any traffic that formed in order to get to different locations, unlike in bigger cities, such as Fresno or Los Angeles.
