Oakdale is known as the "Cowboy Capital of the World" and is a wonderful town to live in. It is located NortEast of Modesto and is located in Stanislaus County. I live in this town and have found it to be very, very quiet. It is a suburbia with a small-town feel to it. Last year when they celebrated their 100 year anniversary of being a town, Oakdale had an actual cattle drive through the main roads to thei city.
It is home to the Oakdale Rodeo which occurs the first weekend every year and features some of the top bull riders in the nation. It is also home to ConAgra foods which features Hunts Tomato Brands and Rosarito Chips. It is the former home of the Hershey Chocolate Factory, which just recently moved out of the area to facilities in Mexico.
In terms of neighborhoods, it is home to the Bridle Ridge Community, in which luxury meets affordability. Homes in this area once sold for 500-600K, can now be purchased for only $325,000 or less. These homes range from 2500-4000 sq.ft. It is a wonderful area, with the only drawback being that the railroad goes nearby your backyard. Besides that, the neighborhood is a perfect place to raise a family.
Oakdale is a wonderful city and a great place to raise a family.
