A small town that is extremely close-knit. Lacks food choices due to low population but has easy access to larger towns such as Modesto and Turlock, within a reasonable distance.

Waterford is a quaint town. It can sometimes feel too small however. It definitely has the aura of a commuter town. There isn't much too do or eat here, thus many people go out of town on a regular basis to go watch a movie or get a large grocery haul. Nevertheless, it's still a nice, quiet town with a lot of locals and regulars that go to the high school games etc.
It's a small town, with a great community. Everyone knows each other, and most adults are involved in the school projects.
