Review of Redwood City, California

More Bang for one's Buck in Bay Area Terms
Star Rating - 12/28/2020
The entire Bay Area is ridiculous. You can't compare it to other areas. RWC is reasonably cheap for the area. I pay $5K for a rental townhouse in one of the many buildings sprouting up Downtown. I'm in the middle of the Bay Area so I can commute to both SF and SJ if I need to. There is more to do than in most of the Silicon Valley. It's close to Stanford Mall and Hillsdale Mall.

The cons are, I don't always feel safe without my husband around. There are a lot of creepy homeless people. Obviously, its not SF levels but I feel like there are more here than in suburban LA where I'm from. There are some iffy areas of RWC but they are also right next to Atherton so whatev and I don't have to commute from the East Bay.

My main peeve is that there is a great movie theater within walking distance but the restaurants all close at 9pm so there is no where to go eat after a movie. That is freaking annoying.
