I love the fact that Hillsborough is such a friendly place to live. All of the people are connected through a social media site called Nextdoor, and they people who post on the site are very active when it comes to warning their neighbors about stormy weather or recent break-ins.
A nice community where people walk their dogs every night around the neighborhood and say hi to each other.
Even though I come from a small town south of San Francisco, there is a great community of people where everyone is interested in helping each other.
