My family moved here when I was two and it was definitely a great place to grow up. Tracy has a very strong family-like environment that flows throughout our town. Some highlights of my hometown are the Saturday morning Farmer's Markets, Historic Downtown with great nightlife on the weekends, and great schools within our outstanding neighborhoods. One thing that I love about my town is our abundance of places to eat and things to do, so you will never get bored! It is nestled between two major cities in California so various amenities are always an hour away or else. I am very grateful that I got to grow up in Tracy because it was like growing up with extended family members everywhere you went.

Tracy is a great safe town! Lived a lot of my life here and if I could I would probably stay here. The schools here are of very good quality. I went to a few myself and can say that my education was very good and many of the teachers I had were great. It feels safe to be out. The night life is a little boring, not much around and most places close early but that’s what keeps the town peaceful. There are many neighboring cities to go to for a good nightlife. The commute can be a little rough on traffic times, but when it is clear it’s easy to come and go. There are many parks one can go to and enjoy a nice walk or even just to lounge around. They are also building many new and nice houses, some I wish could buy myself in order to stay but maybe once I have finished school and able to settle down I may be able to get a house of my own here.
A small, quiet town. I appreciate that my neighbors are very kind, respectful, friendly, and approachable! It feels really safe and calm to live here. The teachers at the K-12 schools here are also very amazing, caring, and sincere.
