Campbell is so unique compared to other suburbs of San Jose. It's smaller, but has so much more to offer than I've seen in other areas! It has an older feel to it, and generally feels very safe. I think walking to downtown Campbell at dusk, with all the lights, is so beautiful. And if you're ever bored, there's so much to do from trivia nights, to live music, to farmer's markets!

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.
Campbell is a great little suburb in the Bay Area. The schools are nice, the streets are quiet, and nearby hiking and beaches are a bonus. Growing up here I would give it give stars, but my forecast for the future it will be reduced to three stars. Due to the governor's push and the state's need for housing this little suburb is slowly losing its charm and familiar faces. We are becoming more congested with people and the cost to live here steadily increases. While I love my town my goals have shifted to include a different town in a different state. If single you need to make no less than 85,000 per year to live here comfortably.
