Living in Los Banos has been enjoyable for the few years I've been here so far. What really attracted me to the city is all the parks. Not just the small parks throughout the city, but how close it is to Yosemite. If you work in the technology sector, you'll probably do well with Los Banos. It's just a couple hours away from San Francisco.
The summers in Los Banos are mild, which I like a lot. There is also a good amount of shopping in the city, including some niche stores if you like to check out new things. If you like to stay in shape, there are a bunch of gyms and fitness clubs you can check out too. In my opinion, one of the best areas in Los Banos is Ranchwood Park, where I like to go jogging a lot. Even in the winter, it's still mild enough to get outside without having to dress in layers.
