Lathrop is situated in the northern portion of San Joaquin Valley at the junction of Interstates 5 and 205, near Tracy and Manteca. It became incorporated in 1989, and despite being recognized as one of the quickest-growing communities in Northern California, residents still value its small-town feel. But growth is coming, part of a trend as Bay Area residents head east for more affordable housing.
