I grew up in Dublin pretty much all my life. When we moved from Livermore to Dublin, I was only 2 years old. So, we saw how Dublin transformed into what it is today. We have many shopping plaza, unlimited variety of restaurants, great parks, many homes being built, and how that affected the school district. This is the only city I can call home and participating in the annual Dublin Pride is what makes us unique. We gather together to yearly to clean creeks, parks, and school grounds. I love living here and I just wish that we would grow just a slight slower. The land that I thought were preserved are now being turn into housing and retail places. Our city is diverse in all aspect so I hope we can find the balance that works for us within our community.

Three stars only becaues it has good schools (but they are crowded because of the over building and not much regard to how to take care of all the new people that have moved here into these new houses). It's very middle-america but with money. It is NOT diverse, white people, Asian People, East Indian people, thats about it. It's an odd city in the middle of some crazy growth. No culture, not nightlife, no entertainment (there is a movie theater and strip malls). Food is mostly chains. Its friendly-ish, pretty safe. BART is here so you can get to the city easily. It is very centrally located but the traffic to where most people who moved here work (silicon valley) is pretty awful. It is clean, no gangs, churches... If you like a good suburb with lots of box stores, high density housing, new neighborhoods with overpriced houses and you don't mind everything closing down by 7:00 this could be home.
I have lived in Dublin, CA for 15 years and I highly recommend this city to anyone thinking about living here. The Dublin School District has many primary schools all around the city, and they are top notch schools. One downside is that there is only one high school, which is located in West Dublin. Most other cities in the bay have 3 or 4 high schools, so Dublin High School is very populated as of right now. This leads to the extended time is takes for the morning commute to work, since all of Dublin's high school students have to get to one place at once. Dublin is very safe, and there is little to no crime at all. The city is very welcoming, and the neighborhoods are family friendly too. The students at the schools are diverse, and there are more and more job opportunities available since Dublin is growing very quickly. Compared to the rest of the Bay Area, Dublin isn't on the cheap side.
