Silicon Valley residents are aware that Sunnyvale has a particularly low level
of crime, good schools, and a lot of strong businesses that call it home. Even
so, it’s nice to see that CNN took note too, and listed Sunnyvale in its top 100
of Best Places to Live.

Why Sunnyvale, as opposed to nearby Mountain View (a “contender”), Los Altos,
Cupertino (a “contender”), Saratoga, Los Gatos, Campbell, Santa Clara (also a
“contender”) or San Jose?

Apparently it’s the combination of affordability, schools, low crime, and short
commutes that did the trick. Sunnyvale does a lot of programs in a more
efficient way, such as the amazing public safety department there.

The award is well deserved. Congratulations, Sunnyvale!
