Lodi is an up-to-date contemporary city that still gives off a hometown feel
One of those reasons is that it really is a hometown community. The residents are celebrated and remembered for their contributions, which causes Lodi to remain a coveted community. It is this legacy of pride and doing is why Lodi persists in in being an envious place for people to live and watch their families grow. Lodi continues to improve upon that sense of community and provide for the requirements of its residents without giving up the small town life quality we all have come appreciate - simply, it's called "Lodi-Style."

More than 50 years ago, the Lodi community went door-to-door to raise funds to open a hospital for the community that today still magnificently serves the community.
This is a community which resurrected an old high school destroyed by fire, by a single fundraiser after another.

Las Vegas by Allegiant Air, and the days of service/number of flights were expanded a few months later due to demand. Also in 2006, Aeromexico had planned to provide service to and from Guadalajara, Mexico, but the airport's plan to build a customs station at the airport was initially rejected by the customs service. However, the possibility of building this station is currently a continuing matter of negotiation between the airport and the customs service, and Aeromexico has indicated a continuing interest in eventually providing service.

Phoenix began in September 2007.

Lodi Ca currently has two museums, the Hill House MuseumBuilt at the turn
of the century, Hill House was the home of George Washington Hill, his wife Mary Hill and their
children, Nellie and Maurice. Mrs. Hill's half-sister, Daisy, also lived at Hill House. The house was
moved in 1948 from its original location on School Street, across from the Lodi Post Office, to its
present location at 826 South Church - a distance of about six blocks. Because of the move, required
changes were made to bring the house up to city code. Changes, however, were primarily in the plumbing,
electrical and heating systems, although an upper room was added at the time. Today, The Hill House is
operated under the auspices of the Lodi Historical Society and the Hill House Committee. Volunteers
conduct tours most Sundays from 1-4 PM. Special tours may be arranged by calling (209) 369-6073.,

Bank Reo's in Lodi.
REO is an acronym for (real estate owned). And
bank owned real estate is considered by a good number of
investors, to be money waiting to fall out of the tree. An REO property is unique from a
foreclosed property being that the lender has already offered it for sale at at
auction with no luck at the offered bid price. Due to no successful bidders on the property, thus the bank became the property owner. Naturally, the bank has no desires to retain the REO property any longer than necessary, and this creates a
terrific opportunity for investors. Clean, market priced REO's in decent locations are receiving multiple contracts within only a few days above the asking price

- "Lodi" is the title of a track from Creedence Clearwater Revival's 1969 album Green River. The refrain says, "Oh, Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again." Although songwriter John Fogerty wrote the song about being trapped in Lodi, California, about 75 miles from his hometown of El Cerrito, he has admitted in interviews that he had never actually been there, and picked its name for the song's title merely because it sounded like the name of a small town and but instead named the song after Lodi, Ohio, where Fogerty had visited in his youth. (according to John Fogerty's DVD he was stuck in Lodi). This (at first) raised the ire of some residents; the Lodi Chamber of Commerce, however, later capitalized upon this by producing car bumper stickers which read "This Bumper Got Stuck In Lodi."
