Despite its large population, Campbell has that small, hometown feel. I've grown up with the same grocery store clerks, bankers, and postmen. The city is filled with many "mom n pop" shops and small family businesses with heavy support from the community. Campbell's presence in the Silicon Valley provides residents with an abundance of both educational and employment opportunities. Many students in Campbell pursue a career in the STEM fields due to years of experience in the Silicon Valley. Residents of Campbell have a heavy concern for the maintenance and upkeep of their community which ultimately keeps the city in mint condition.

The qualities I enjoy most about Campbell are the clean, friendly, and wholesome environment it provides to not only its residents but to visitors. There are plenty of small shops to visit in the downtown area meanwhile supplying trendy places to grab a small bite or full course meal. While campbell provides many welcoming qualities, I would like to see more community events to draw in a more diverse crowd.
Campbell is a safe place to be. Lots of fun things to do in the area. There is a lot to do if you're the kind of person to go make your fun. The local schools are great, very family friendly neighborhoods and extraordinarily diverse town to be in. With all the mountains surrounding the area, there is much to do. You must be willing to go for a short drive to get there. The nightlife is something that you will have to create, there is not a ton of things to do, other than eat. This is a very mellow, but very safe town to live in.
