      Clayton - A Gorgeous Suburb of San Francisco
      Clayton is an average sized suburb of San Francisco housing approximately eleven thousand residents. This is an extremely respected neighborhood for many reasons, one of which includes the fact that is a gorgeous region of California. The mountains nearby make for an amazing sight on the horizon.

      Aside from the gorgeous natural elements, the neighborhood is respected due to it's overall impressive demographics across all categories. The city is recognized as one of the safest in its entire region. Crime rates are extremely low and the community seems extremely friendly and welcoming. I believe the school districts are above average and offer a safe learning environment for their students.

      This neighborhood could be considered relatively expensive, but with the amenities, safety, schools, and gorgeous views of the mountains, it is quite worth the price. The ocean is less than an hour away and there are some great beaches within driving distance. The weather is gorgeous and the neighborhood offers great values to all types of families.
