I lived in King City for a few years before my job transferred me. I got to say, King City has a lot of amenities. There are so many places to go in this city for shopping and hanging out. There are a ton of different parks and shopping centers in the area. I take my dog with me everywhere I go and I feel so welcomed. The California weather in this area is sublime, it's like a brand new day every time I walk outside.
There are not a lot of entertainment spots in this area, however, it makes up for it in kind nature aesthetic. This place is great for outdoorsy people who want to experience life outside. The best place in King City is San Lorenzo County Park, Salinas river runs right through it. It is a beautiful area where I can pick up some Starbucks and take a long walk to the park with my pup.
The cost of living, housing, and school system are not the best. They lack in this area, but they make up for having low crime rates and great weather. I would recommend this location to anyone who would like a taste of casual California.
