30 Year Resident 2.5 rating By Anonymous ( Dec 28, 2020) I have lived in Manteca for 30 years. In the 90s and early 2000s, Manteca was a small, pretty much unheard of town. There were only like 3 chain restaurants in town and no Starbucks or anything like that. Most homes I lived in were near vacant, undeveloped land. Nothing ever happ ...Read More ened in Manteca.. which included crime. Fast forward to 2020.. and Manteca does have all the amenities you would want.. lots of restaurants and things to do. However, along with the new houses and new businesses came a lot of crime. I live in what I would say is one of the safer areas of town (Woodward Park area).. and I’m still nervous to be out in my neighborhood or out shopping at night. Drug deals happen out on the street during the day... and houses and cars get broken into at night. There is a large homeless population in certain areas also. Shootings seem to be happening way too often .. even during the day. I hate to admit that the small cow town I once lived in is no more. While we have beautiful homes and tons to do.. the crime is overwhelming our city. I have lived in this town for 30 years.. and have never felt as afraid of living here as I do now. Read Less
Manteca - A Big City with a Small Town Feel 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( Jan 13, 2015) Manteca is definitely a city with a small town community vibe! Before relocating from Manteca, CA to the East coast for work, I lived in Manteca for nearly 20 years with my family. While I would not necessarily spend a lot of time on Main Street (other than to visit my favorite " ...Read More hole in the wall" Mexican restaurant right off of 120W), there are many great newly developed areas and shopping centers to visit.

For your everyday needs, such as groceries or general home supplies, I would highly recommend the Spreckles Park shopping area. There is an array of stores and markets that can provide any of your daily essentials and when you are done shopping, there are plenty of spots to eat as well, such as Applebee's, Chili's, In-N-Out (a must if you have never had one of their burgers), Chipotle, Jamba Juice, and Starbucks, among many other restaurants, including locally owned eateries such as Mr. Pickles.

For entertainment and serious gift shopping, I like to head over to one of Manteca's newest centers called the Promenade Shops-Orchard Valley, where you can find a lot of great outlet stores and unique, fun to visit stores such as Bass Pro Shops, which everyone should visit at least once to witness the beautiful architecture inside and the indoor waterfall. This is a great area for families to visit for weekend trips to the movies, and if you head a little further west on 120 then you can also visit the Sharpe Depot shopping center or the Big League Field of Dreams where many local, intramural teams gather to play fun rounds of baseball.

Overall, Manteca is definitely a family friendly city and is really up-and-coming in terms of quality shopping, food, and entertainment. Read Less
pretty boring 2 rating By elysem88 ( Aug 03, 2014) I lived in Manteca for 2 years and it was probably the most boring two years of my life. I sat at home with a baby because there was literally nothing to do there. I tried to take my toddler to a near by park but of course we found needles from what looked like someone shooting u ...Read More p in the park. It seems like most of the people are on drugs. There aren't very many restaurants, or at least there wasn't when I lived there but that was about five years ago. They do have a Bass Pro shop that is pretty nice and they built a new movie theatre that is also pretty good. It's much better than the neighboring city, Stockton, but still not a great city to live in. Read Less
DONT MOVE HERE... 1 rating By blondegirl5 ( Apr 16, 2014) In my opinion manteca sucks. Ive lived here for 10 long years . We have crime.we're near stockton.

I LOVE mexican food. but we nee ...Read More d variety. We dont go to the bowling alley any more because of the inside stabbing.its on you tube. and the outside shooting. The people who run the city in my opinion dont care about what the people who live here want. One example they put in stupid medians in the streets even though we the people didnt want them. Then years later the city finally realizes oh we made a mistake yet the medians are still here. Just recently a poor girl got murdered then dumped in a dumpster behind a localbusiness.thats enough.

Why I Love Manteca, California 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( Jun 26, 2012) I've been living in Manteca, California for two years now. I moved here from Vermont with little understanding of how large this country really is. Living in New England is a lot different than the west coast, I have come to realize. It took me a short while to understand this pl ...Read More ace, and get to know the area, but now that I have I can't imagine living anywhere else. It has truly become my home, and the friends I have made are very important to me.

I actually love the more typical tourist attractions that Manteca has to offer. Maybe being an outsider, I was immediately drawn to such things. For instance, the Manteca History Society gives a detailed and interesting look at the history of not only Manteca, but the entire Central Valley.

Caswell Park is immense and surely more than just a park. Though you can picnic and throw the Frisbee around, this unique park is great for hiking as well. There is much beautiful wildlife to be found on the many trails. Most of which I have never seen before, back in Vermont.

Not too far from where I live is the always fun Old Town Sacramento. This place is loads of fun, and showcases a lifestyle reminiscent of those old western movies from the 60s. I have always been interested in stories about the Wild West, which is partly why I moved out here to California, but Old Town was nothing I ever expected to see. It's like going back in time, only you can go home afterwards and enjoy the luxuries of the modern age.

For anyone planning to visit California, I would suggest adding Manteca to your list of stops along the way. There are plenty of fun things to do during the day, and great places to spend the evening with a glass of wine. If wine is not your thing, I would recommend the farmers market for a fresh glass of veggie juice. I have plenty of history with farmers markets growing up, so this was one of the first things I loved about Manteca, but the first among many. Read Less
