Sunnyvale is one of the major cities in the Silicon Valley region. Originally a heavily agricultural region, Sunnyvale was the home of a large fruit canning industry until the middle of the 1900s. At that time, there was an influx of industry related to the manufacturing of airplanes and defense industry products.
Today, it is also home to many internet based companies like Yahoo! and Advanced Micro Systems.Even though the famous fruit orchards are long gone, Sunnyvale remains a great place to live and work. It's proximity to both San Francisco and San Jose make it the perfect place for a great lifestyle.
A Very Safe Environment
When starting your search for a Sunnyvale apartment, you'll want to consider transportation issues and whether you'll be driving or commuting by mass transit.
You will find a mixture of both large and small complexes in virtually every neighborhood. You'll find older buildings south of El Camino Real while the more modern ones lie in the Mountain View area. They all vary so consider whether a pool is important or even the nearness of places to bike or jog. The city is consistently ranked one of the safest places to live so you can bear that in mind as well.
Saturday Mornings at Market
Get out and about by attending the Farmer's Market on Murphy Street. It's something of a Saturday morning institution. Shoreline Park provides areas for nature walks as well as sports actvities. There's a great wine and art festival in the summer, and also at that time of the year, there are weekly outdoor concerts. You'll be able to find plenty of golf courses around the area too. Or even visit the Toys R Us store which is purportedly haunted. Check out that legend!
Sunnyvale has a number of Indian restaurants so enjoy a huge selection of them. From your Sunnyvale apartment, you'll find some very goods ones. Stop into Saravana Bhavan for memorable dosas and other vegetarian dishes. Overlook Las Palmas Park while eating outside at City Kabob or hit Country Gourmet for great eating and a menu that changes weekly.
At night, check out the Firehouse Brewery or one of the many pubs around town.There's a healthy party scene at Murphy's Law or hear music nightly at the Quarter Note. With San Jose and San Francisco just a hop, skip and a jump away, you can plan big party nights out of town too.
