Just minutes outside of Modesto, Calif., in the heart of the Central Valley in Northern California, the city of Ceres is one of the most talked about areas in the Golden State. Conveniently located near a larger city, but still close to Stanislaus National Forest and other beautiful recreational areas, residents who live in Ceres apartments for rent can have the best of both worlds. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the city is home to more than 45,000 residents, with 32 percent of them being under 18, making Ceres an ideal place to raise children. Many parents have already jumped on board, seeing as the city has grown by more than 31 percent from 2000 to 2010, according to City-Data. This is a community that many people want to be part of.
Ceres has a history of agriculture - and it can be seen everywhere. From the rolling Tuolumne River to the beautiful temperate climate and four distinct seasons, it is easy to see why it is one of the richest and most diverse places in the state for farming. In fact, the city's name derives from the Roman goddess of agriculture. One of the first founders in the city was Daniel Whitmore in 1870, and his home still stands today, demonstrating Ceres' commitment to its history. Ceres is also a diverse community of residents, welcoming people from all walks of life. Contrary to many places in northern California, it is also very affordable. According to City-Data, the cost of living index is more than 5 points below the national average - making Ceres very easy on your bank account.
The city is home to several activities and community events throughout the year, including the Downtown Street Fair in May, concerts in the park during the summer, the Halloween Fun Festival and the Christmas Tree Lane opening.
