We don't, but he wanted somewhere with the same feel and population. One would presume that means he wants somewhere which is "west coast diverse."

Texas Panhandle cities like Amarillo and Lubbock are closest in feel to Central Valley cities like Stockton and Bakersfield. However, Texas is not the "Deep South" by any stretch. If you are talking about the real South, then somewhere outside of Atlanta, or possibly even a moderately-sized Florida city like Gainesville or Tallahassee.

Honestly? As someone who was raised in Stockton it's really not that bad. All of the other major central valley cities are waaay worse to live in with the exception of Sac. And plenty of cities like Oakland have way worse crime rates. Where are you moving from?

Yeah, Midland feels a lot like Stockton, coming from someone who lives here now and has lived in the Central Valley in the past. There are fewer Asian folks here but other than that, the racial composition and overall urban/rural culture is similar. The political climate is a bit more conservative here although Stockton isn't exactly a Liberal stronghold either

How would you compare San Angelo? San Angelo is one of Texas' most "Southwestern" cities, I feel it could also fit well in New Mexico, so I wonder how it would compare with California's central valley.

Never been to San Angelo.. actually, I've only come to Texas a few months ago. Another city that's somewhat similar to Stockton is Abilene, especially with the nearby rolling hills which could pass for California's coast range which separates the Bay Area from the Central Valley.

Well San Angelo is similar to Abilene in many ways. Its even more western looking and desert like, though. Culturally it feels more Tex-Mex than Abilene, too.

I'd have to agree

Not only does the weather suck, the city itself sucks.
