San Jose, CA


Great place but expensive - 7/19/2019
I've lived here since 2000. Overall, it's great. Very diverse, and anything you could want to do is here or within driving distance. The weather is great. Low humidity, no snow in the winter, 300 days of sunshine a year. The education level is high, with many college graduates and people with advanced degrees. Medical care is abundant and good. Traffic is not as bad as it could be given the population. The huge downside of living here is the ridiculous cost of housing, the high volume of millionaires, poorly funded K-12, and it is very difficult to get your kids into state universities. They give priority to out-of-state applicants because those students pay more, and they have so many applicants that you need a 4.3+ gpa to be considered. But people are friendly and literally any interest you have, you can delve into it here or nearby - all sorts of organizations and hobbies, beaches, mountains, skiing, etc. San Jose has tons of things for kids to do. It's surprisingly family friendly.
