Stockton – Things to do with your Team

Stockton’s growth and success as a city is largely due to the California Gold Rush.  The large influx of American, European, and Asian settlers into the area caused the need for the building of more towns.

Stockton played an important role in its early days during the Gold Rush.  It developed as a major river port and became the epicenter of the San Joaquin Valley region.

The city is named after Robert F. Stockton, a naval officer famous for capturing California in the Mexican American War.

Today, Stockton continues to provide golden opportunities to its tourists.  You and your team will relish in the fact that this city has so much to see.
