On my frequent trips to Silicon Valley, I always feel the urge to go somewhere new. Since, Sunnyvale is close to San Jose, I always visit my friend, an officer in US Air Force. His home is located in Birdlane district, where streets are named after native birds. Most of the city of Sunnyvale is residential area therefore you won't find many tall buildings.
There are a number of interesting things to do and attractions in Sunnyvale. The one attraction that comes to mind is the Sunnyvale Historical Museum. It is a fantastic local history museum, that is free I might add, that offers a number of unique interesting facts and sights all related to Sunnyvale.
Sunnvale is known for it's vibrant community where the majority of the population is of Asian background. These professionals mostly work for high-tech companies. Although house prices are steep as compared to rest of Silicon Valley, it is most likely because Sunnyvale is considered one of the safest cities in America. There are lots of good restaurants in the city of Sunnyvale, which unlike most nearby cities, offer variety. If you have some cash to spend, I really recommend buying a home in Sunnyvale.
