Turlock Reviews

The college side of Turlock is awesome! Everything is within walking distance and buzzing with motivated college students. It's a very quiet town, surprisingly, except around Warrior Day. The streets are filled with students celebrating the end of summer and beginning of school. It's actually quite an experience. Very healthy town with plenty of yoga studios and food choices!
Review Turlock
Currently I live in Turlock, this is an amazing town to raise a family, the safety is A+ and the community is so small every time you go out there is an opportunity to bump into someone that you know. There is a farmers market through the summer and beginning of fall that offers fresh local food. The only thing I would say needs to be changed in this community is the homeless population, there is quite a few and I believe more shelters and help centers should be opened up for them to turn to. Other than that it is a wonderful community for all!
Turlock is a small town in CA, but we have everything we need next to each other, especially the university, CSU Stanislaus. Many generations have attended this University because of the cost of tuition, but before students ended the first semester, they fell in love with the school and faculties. Also, geographically, the town is much safer from the common natural disaster, particularly from the raining. Another, most popular places are located with short distance to visit the famous tourisms like San Francisco for sports games, Santa Cruz for surfing, Yosemite national park for hiking or camping, Reno for skiing, etc. The town is small, but it has designed very attractively to students. Therefore, Turlock is the perfect place for any students who accomplish their goal with peaceful and safety environment.
