Stockton Introduction

Incorporated in 1850, Stockton is the 13th largest city in the state of California. The city is home to nearly 300,000 inhabitants. The metropolitan area has a population of about 600,000 people. Stockton is located in the northern part of the state, 65 miles east of San Francisco, and 40 miles south of Sacramento.

Stockton was a stopping point for prospectors during the California Gold Rush of 1849. In the middle of a rich agricultural area, it is also a sizable inland seaport along the San Joaquin River. Lately it has attracted residents and businesses seeking a lower cost alternative to the San Francisco Bay Area.

In 1999 and again in 2004, Stockton won the "All-America City Award" given by the National Civic League.
