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!
I love Turlock! It has pet friendly parks, many restaurants, and an amazing downtown atmosphere. Not only do I love the city, but its located right next to the freeway. So if you are traveling, it does not take long to get on the path to your destination. I know I want to stay here and raise my future family in Turlock! It's diverse and everybody is friendly!
