Located at the geographic center of California, Manteca is a charming community with a genuine hometown feeling. The farmer’s market, with its abundance of produce and live entertainment, is a great place to glimpse the true personality of Manteca. Among the heirloom tomatoes, sweet corn and root vegetables, you’ll find locals chatting and swapping recipes.
And if agriculture is the pulse of Manteca, the great outdoors are its spirit. The city offers more than 50 parks with a broad range of amenities for active lifestyles: an 18-hole championship golf course, lighted tennis courts and ball fields, a swimming pool, a skate park, a BMX track, a public fountain and more.
Manteca’s location at the crossroads of Hwy 99, I-5 and I-580 puts the work centers and resources of Stockton, Sacramento, San Jose and San Francisco within easy driving distance. For those who work in the Bay Area, the ACE train allows easy commuting to the Silicon Valley, with connections to BART.
