Community Introduction

Tracy is a community where neighbors and local merchants greet you by name and the welcoming never stops. Tradition, charity and prosperity abound.

Locals know the secret: as one of the friendliest little cities in California, Tracy is a place to kick off your shoes, hang your hat, sit back and relax. The opportunity to live the good life still exists here, and family, faith, education and the arts are still valued within the community. This is also a town where tradition is constantly reinvented. While we move forward, we never leave our foundation.

Our strategic location is a theme that runs throughout our town’s history, even as the country’s emphasis has shifted from railroads to highways. Tracy is now centered in a triangle formed by the major interstates of 580, 205 and 5. Tracy is also conveniently situated just an hour from Sacramento, San Francisco and San Jose and just a few hours from Los Angeles. If it is recreation you seek, Tracy is also convenient to the Bay Delta, Yosemite, Tahoe and the San Francisco Bay.

Tracy, with its roots in agriculture and the railroad, has placed itself among the leading Northern California cities. It’s a community that is proud of its award-winning schools, advanced hospital campus, diversified economy, well-maintained parks, rich culture and fine neighborhoods.

A collaboration of effort from our elected officials, employees and citizens means Tracy is a clean and safe community where opportunity, growth and success prosper. We invite you to come for a visit, open your business and settle down to raise a family. Take a look inside the triangle – inside Tracy. You’ll like our pace, and you’ll love the place! This is truly a community for everyone – from young families and executives to retirees. Whether you’re just visiting or looking for a new place to call home, you are invited to enjoy the beautiful weather, modern conveniences and friendly spirit of Tracy, California.
