Each city, as well as the unincorporated County areas, offers an unique opportunity to enjoy natural California beauty and nature, or music, arts and culture. Whatever your interest, it can most likely be found in San Joaquin County.
The county is one of the most agriculturally rich regions in California and is the number one producer, statewide, of asparagus. Twenty-four thousand acres of county farmland is dedicated to production of this crop.
In recent years, the leading crop in the county has been wine grapes, and wineries and vineyards have sprung up from Stockton to Lodi.
The region is fast becoming known as one of California's leading premium wine districts. Because of its agricultural heritage, the county offers vast areas of open space and easy access to a world of adventure with nature.
Homes and apartments are plentiful and the median home price in Stockton is less than in many surrounding areas. Affordable, comfortable housing is available in most sections of the county and new homes abound in both the south and north area, with historic homes mostly found in central Stockton and downtown Lodi.
San Joaquin County is a place where families can grow, learn, and experience the nature and beauty of the California landscape while benefiting from the unique opportunities, cultural, recreational, and educational that the area provides.
