Try Nashville area.... We used to live in Modesto (Ceres actually) and we moved here about 2 months ago. The economy does not seem as bad as the rest of the US. Yes there are down turns and gas is 3.85 a gallon but it just seems better somehow. Coming from the hectic hustle and bustle of the Central Valley to here has been AWESOME. We live in a little town called Portland, Tn. (Yes thats Portland) which is about 30 miles north of Nashville right on the Kentucky boarder. Yes it's humid (but it ain't as bad as 105 in the central valley) The news here is freaking out because it is going to be 90 this week. Tornado's you say? More people get killed slipping in the tub then in a tornado... Besides the Thunder Storms are cool... I was born and raised in California. I love California but in order to live a life for me and not for Sacramento I had to move.. Car registration is $87.50 on a 2006 HHR and it was the same for our 2003 35ft Class A motorhome...

Make It A Great Day.......

Default Tennessee

I moved to Hermitage Tennessee, about 11 miles from Nashville, three years ago. Although it is pretty and we could afford a "big" house it's definitely not California. They say the south is friendly, they may wave at you when you drive by, but that's the extent of the "friendliness". The state sales tax is 9.75%, you pay taxes on food at the market, can't purchase wine in the grocery store and can not get out of the heat, which at 85degrees with humidity is much worst than any 105 degree day in Sacramento.

I've done my time and am ready to move home. I am actively looking for work and will gladly give up the "big" house to be back in an area that I feel like I belong. Think really hard and make lots trips before you take the leap......

Not a bad place, but not for me.

I moved from Rockling to England 5 yrs ago. I would love to move back to the area but there is no way I can ever afford a house there. What you dont realize when you live there is the amount of things Sacramento and the surrounding areas have to offer compared to other areas in the world. There is tons to do.

The grass is always greener, eh?

My husband is British. I moved here when we got married. We are now looking at moving to the states. We both wish we could move back to Rocklin. There is just no way to afford it. But we are looking at WA state. I just cant wait to get back to the states.

Can you tell me how to get there form I-80 Truxel (Natomas)?
