    Definitely go visit first for a while. Only then can you make an informed decision. And if you didn't have to stay long....it could be a stepping stone to something better. If I did not have a family I would move anywhere there was a job. Just make sure your car and house has awesome air conditioning! And safe neighborhood. Modesto cannot be worse than Oakland, CA?

    Yeah, air conditioning would be a must for me almost anywhere in the states.

    However, it is sweltering in Modesto right now. The temperatures tend to exceed 100 degrees in the summer, and it is a different kind of heat than one would experience in the Midwest or the Southeast.

    I spent last week in California's Central Valley. I was not in Modesto, but in another city bisected by Highway 99 that is not too far from there. The heat was stifling.

    No, I didn't. Couldn't make the money work. Sorry I don't have any advice to offer.

    I was raised in Modesto and now live between Sacramento and Reno and I have to say I love the fresh air. Unless I was really desperate I would not move to Modesto. I did grow up in the nice part, but it was starting to get shady.
