Stanford is a Classy Suburb

I've been living in Stanford for the last 6 years and have enjoyed the small-town atmosphere but the upper class, upper-scale amenities and highly educated neighbors and friends I've developed over my time living here. Stanford is a very classy place to live and the people are very sophisticated and classy as well. They are all the shops, restaurants, resources, and amenities available for individuals to truly live a lavish lifestyle in this upper scale community on the outskirts of San Francisco. The best areas in Stanford are around the Stanford Golf Course where there is a very high-class neighborhood with friendly people and culture that is very diverse and intellectual. The school systems in Stanford are excellent and provide my kids with exceptional education and resources to stimulate their growth and intellectual understanding. If you're looking to relocate to the San Francisco California area, Stanford will be a great opportunity to live in a superb classy suburban area that has a small town and community feel like none other.
