West San Jose - Great Shopping!

I currently reside in San Jose, California. I have been here for about 2 years. There are many great things about this area. One is of course the shopping. There are plenty of places to find whatever you may need. There are upscale and every day shops to choose from. Another thing I really enjoy is the overall area. This area is more upscale than most. You will not see a mass number of delinquents running around the streets here. Everybody has some sort of responsibility to them. There are also fabulous beaches nearby. The beaches are a great place to spend the day relaxing. You will feel like you're in heaven when being in this area. The sun shines more than ever over here.

I live in West San Jose. This is located in San Jose, California. This neighborhood has many great things about it. One great thing is how upscale it is. Many people are not fortunate enough to live somewhere this nice. This neighborhood consists of million dollar homes. The neighborhood community is outstanding. Everybody in this neighborhood is more than friendly. The home owners association is very responsible with keeping everything up. They make sure to collect the yearly dues and budget everything out for the neighborhood. This neighborhoods landscaping is beautiful. Individuals work very hard to keep the flowers looking great year around. The roads are also paved nicely. You will not find huge pot holes in this neighborhood. This will make you feel better about driving on these roads daily. West San Jose is a great place to raise children. You will not have to worry about gang violence or anything along that line. It is impossible to assure anywhere is crime free, but this is the closest you will ever get.

Overall, this neighborhood is outstanding. Many hardworking individuals reside here. I honestly wouldn't consider living anywhere else. Keep this neighborhood in mind next time you are looking to make your next big move. You will be glad you made this smart decision!
