Review of Prunedale, California

Calm living
Star Rating - 3/3/2019
Rural yet close to it all. Neighbors simultaneously protect each other and give you space. Nice combo. The nature and wildlife of Monutery County and San Benito areas are some of the most beautiful in the county. Roads are rural and quiet and they like it that way. Conservative and religious. Weather is great and people are friendly. There are some questionables but these are well noted are watched. Agricultural mentality and nature lovers combine. Schools are ok, have heart but a lot of people flooding the schools so sometimes taught to esl students instead of pushing an accelerated curriculum. Some places do have multiple families is certain pockets, but not all over. Best advice is private school, homeschool, or join a charter and be ok with a commute. The opportunity for world class events are neighborhoods away (not far) making for peaceful living. Much to the chagrin of criminals there are a lot of intelligence, police and military that reside in area so eyes are always open. Silicon Valley is overrun and over priced up into Gilroy and too much homeless. Monterey is cute but transitional, Santa Cruz county is full of junkies and trust fund hippies- too liberal to its detriment , downtown Salinas has good restaurants but has a crime pocket in a certain location. Prunedale escapes much of these downfalls.
