Hey everyone!

I'm a college grad that is moving to Tracy in a few months. I heard there isn't much to do in Tracy so I am looking for nearby cities (near san fran) to commute from. So far I have livermore, pleasanton, and dublin. Where do you think a college grad should move to? I am outgoing and want to move somewhere I can make friends and have a good time with people my age.

Pleasanton is a family oriented community and has a more mature demographic, although you see young people in Downtown. If it's not too far, what about Walnut Creek?

Tracy has people your age. Why not move to Tracy to see what it offers, get your feet planted in your job and explore other areas for your entertainment before committing to a permanent place? Tracy's rent is a bit more affordable than the cities you mentioned and you'll be able to explore without long commutes. At least, for the time being.

if youre looking for a hipster scene forget all about that in any town around there. instead of hipsters you more likely to find cow-tipers. youre gonna have to make your own fun there in general.

mc hammer moved to tracy when he went broke tho, right down the street from sister.

ppl there are pretty down to earth there, which is a big plus over the pretentious hipster scene and its not hard to make friends. its a real mixture tho, you might live between two friendly neighbors, or 2 household that dont speak english.

the tri-valley towns you mention are over-priced and highly sought after for their family friendly environments and dont have any more fun of a social scene.

it'd be easier to live and work in tracy then go into boystown on the weekends to go have your fun.
