Living in Live Oak, CA is similar to living in a commercial for one of those outdoor enthusiast store's television commercials. If you enjoy hunting or winter activities you have the Sutter Buttes within a half hour drive. If you enjoy relaxing on the water as you tube down the river or play in the water, the Feature River is along the outside of town to enjoy.
Family life here has a very small town type of feel. If your children enjoy soccer, you are not alone as a parent. Live Oak Park is a common gathering place for kids and adults alike on the weekends. After that it is frequently occupied by kids that are wanting to play "pickup games" with their friends.
Restaurants here are run by local residents just like myself. I can know that when I go to Betty's I'm getting authentic Mexican food, not the mass produced Tex-Mex style. Pasquini's Fine Italian Food is a destination dining option.
