Morgan Hill is definitely a small town and fits every description of a small town. I loved growing up in such a small area being close to everyone. As I got older I have noticed the town has gotten more populated and over crowded. I hope that one day I'll get my small town home back! Definitely a great place to raise children with all the community functions, support, and holiday events!

We used to live in San Jose and are so pleased to now be living in Morgan Hill. It has a small town feel with the luxury of big stores such as Walmart, Safeway and our favorite Trader Joe's. My husband , me and my children love to go walking around the neighborhood near downtown. It makes us feel like we are in a small European town because of the multiple small business' and it even has a charm for families because of a pop up park. We love Morgan Hill!
I love that Morgan Hill is a growing city with a great atmosphere and I feel comfortable with most areas there. I love walking at the downtown and stopping at the candy parlor to buy a lollipop. To me, Morgan Hill is a perfect balance of people with different political views, different culture, and different interests. Living here has provided me with many opportunities, such as being in the marching band and color guard.
