I was born and raised in Morgan Hill. I went to preschool, elementary school, middle school, and high school here. Since I've graduated high school, Morgan Hill has been improving a lot. Where schools and buildings and housing are being renovated for the incoming generations. There's a lot of activities to do here, like; hiking, bowling, team sports, swimming, and much more! Friendly faces wherever you go, and great diverse food downtown. A great place to grow up.
I really like Morgan Hill because it is a clean town with lots of restaurants, a nice downtown, and lots of community activities. It is also close to San Jose, Gilroy, Monterrey, and Sana Cruz. It's easy to go around town, and easy to travel to other nearby places!
