I avoid Sunnyvale unless I have business there. It's close to the Silicon Valley stuff, but there are much better things to do in the area.

Take a stroll down Main Street for a dose of small town California. Shop for gifts, yarn, clothes, books, music, cowboy togs, travel gear or music. HMB also has some terrific restaurants. You can rent a bike and head for the coastal trail, or take a hike on nearby Montara Mountain. At low tide there's miles of state beach to ...

Head over the foothills to the small town and beach of Pescadero. Pescadero State Beach (read parking lot, toilets, and trash cans) is a wide, clean expanse of sand that's popular with locals--when I lived in Palo Alto, I'd go there at least a couple times a month. And don't miss the artichoke bread from Arcangeli Grocery Store--perfect for a ...

I spent five years of grad school here, great times! The campus is beautiful and relaxing, many things to see.

A lot of camping fun in the redwoods and so close to home if you live in the SF Bay Area.

Amazing views and quite a few wineries in the area to sample some local wines. Take a drive over the mountain and stop at some of the vista points, or safely at the side of the road to admire the scenery.

A very cute town surrounded by vineyards and full of great restaurants. If you are in the bay area and looking for something new to get you out for the day, heading out to Sunol is a great choice.

Rating cities is all about personal experience. I'm not a native of California, but for me it's all about the feeling of family and home I get when here. I visit San Jose nearly every year and I enjoy it every time (but it's also mainly about enjoying it with the people you're with, and for me that means family). ...

Who knew Menlo Park got New England-worthy fall colors? One more reason why this sleepy Silicon Valley community continues to surprise me. Plus, the boutique shops and restaurants on the Santa Cruz main drag are quite impressive.

Recently moved to San Mateo but closer to Foster City. So far I really like it, great restaurants, beautiful places for outdoor activities and overall a really nice and quiet town.

I have fallen in love with Redwood City over the last year. I have visited 5-6 times and the weather has been fantastic. Nice, clear skies in the mornings, and in the winter there's a fine chill. The perfect weather for cozy PJ's, and a lighting the fireplace. Great plazas to shop, friendly residents, access to freeways, many parks available ...

One of the most historic cities in the South Bay. Home to Santa Clara University, the Mission and the future home of the San Francisco 49ers. They messed up on downtown here. Currently City Hall is located out of the way off Harrison St and the rest of the real downtown is over on Main Street and Homestead. You'd never ...

Milpitas is an allright city. It's a pretty decent place to live, if they only improved the downtown a bit it'd be then a great place to be.

Great family city with top schools in the South Bay. Extremely good area to raise a family. Apple headquarters is located here. There are a few local wineries, my favorite is Picchetti.

San Carlos is the suburb just south of Belmont and the former home of the Circle Star Theater, a local favorite when I lived in these parts. San Carlos is relatively small and affluent, with one main draw being Laurel Street with all its cool little restaurants and shops.

They have a great Farmers market every Sunday!

This city only gets two stars and that's for Mission Peak hiking trail. Otherwise even one star would be an overstatement. This city seriously smells, literally!
