I was born and raised in the Bay Area, California and am mostly use to being in the city life, surrounded by lights, tall buildings and a variety of shopping centers and restaurants. I grew to love the city type life because of all the things there are around you to explore. It was hard for me to picture myself in another city that was not a city life city.
I recently moved to the Central Valley, California. I stayed in Riverbank, CA for a short period of a time, I want to guess about six months or so. The weather is extremely hot and it gets very humid from time to time in the warmer months. The area is surrounded my plenty of farm lands, and hardly any city life; hardly any shopping centers and or diverse restaurants. This is a small town. There is a ton of allergens in the air, so if you are a person who has an allergy problem, I would not recommend this place at all. I am still currently in the Central Valley and have to take an allergy pill daily because of the environment and high levels of pollen, ragweed and dust.
