Beaches, snow skiing, rock climbing in desert...
"Almost PERFECT Weather!!!"
all within a few hours away. I love Sunnyvale, you can do almost anything here. Wonderful beaches are within 45 min to 1 hour away. Lake Tahoe and snow skiing are 4 1/2 hours away. Rock climbing in the desert is 3-4 hours away... of course all hours are depending on the amount traffic. Great night clubs in San Jose (10 miles) and San Francisco (50 miles). High-tech is here in the valley and the weather... is brilliant. In winter it can be a little cool and you get a good amount of rain... but it is sunshine and warm weather most of the time.
Those are some of the positives... here are some of the negatives... traffic jams, high price of houses ($600,000.00 for medium house), gas is the highest in the nation ($2.05 per gallon for regular), food prices are outrageous, thick brown smog in the summer, high unemployment (though things are slowly starting to pick up), high car insurance (because prices are based on zip codes), but all-in-all, I love living here and could only picture myself living here or London (where I was born and grew up)!!!
I guess there's a high price for almost perfect weather. A lot of people live in Sunnyvale... it's a real melting pot of ethnicity and that's great!! But for my taste, there are just too many people here... Sunnyvale is not a very big city (area wise), yet sooo many people live here. But, like I have stated before... it's the weather!!! Almost Perfect!!!!
