Mountain View Reviews
Rating 4.02 out of 5 123 reviews
Dangerous areas such as rengstorff and Crittenden avoid Middlefield and rengstorff. Especially at night there is gang activities in these areas.
Mountain View is fairly peaceful. Everyday, a lot of individuals and families are seen jogging, taking walks with/without their dogs, stretching or exercising at local parks, etc. The rent is pretty high though, which is something I don't really enjoy about living here.
Needs more community activities and types of shops. Overall there is mostly just restaurants so that can be very boring. Nice area and nice weather.
Mountain View is a small town with a big town feel. There are some really safe and family-friendly neighborhoods to live in, lots of apartment buildings, and lots of schools. Traffic starts to get thicker during rush hours, and it’s also fairly expensive compared to other towns in California. But the community feels nice, and as the name suggests, you do have a great view of two different mountain ranges wherever you are in town on a clear day.
I love this neighborhood, everyone is so kind and accepting. They help out whenever we need it. However, there isn't much to do outside if your a teenager and it tends to be quite an expensive area.
I like how safe it is and the people. In my opinion, I believe that it is inclusive and it's beautiful living here.
Mountain View is an incredible place to live. Its close to the google campus, has a great downtown area with a variety of restaurants, and beautiful parks. Great for families, but keep in mind high costs.
I love the location and amenities in Mountain View! Everything is really easy to find and close by. I wish the housing was a bit more affordable, otherwise I would consider finding a place here.
Very booming if you're in the tech industry. People can be a little entitled and get worked up over little things. Downtown is cute and the parking is free which is great. Really good Asian restaurants. Only a few bars/night clubs, which can be pricey and crowded.
Mountain view was my worst experience in California. Like that place, Santiago Villa, is a real bad place for living. There is no night life. People just watch TV at home with their broken mood, even complain about the society and jealous their brothers. No social or activities too. A small room for $1300? Nah, I move to LA with Hollywood and beautiful girls instead. I love Universal studios Hollywood a lot.
I like how Mountain View has a close knit community! The parks and schools here are phenomenal! The people in Mountain View are very kind and helpful. Overall, it is a great city to live in!
I love Mountain View with my whole heart! I have grown up here my whole life, and it hasn't failed to provide fun, jobs, sense of community, and trust. They have such fun and welcoming holiday events that are free for anybody to attend, and have an amazing community center that I live very close to. The community center provides anything you could imagine! From dance classes, tutoring, yoga, daycares, and more, the City of Mountain View doesn't stop with provisions for their community. I have gotten lucky enough to work for the City as a lifeguard, and it has been the most fun and enjoyable experience I've had in all my years living here. They hire teens from the age of 15, pay extremely well, and it is a super fun and engaging job to have during the summer! I have learned so much in my years living here, and I hold a space very close to my heart for Mountain View.
Great town. Fairly expensive to live in. Small town feel. Good food. Nice place for people in the tech field.
There's a lot of tech jobs available in Mountain View, and there's a lot of local businesses and chain restaurants nearby like In N Out or Taco Bell. There's a good number of boba shops and the high schools here are pretty academically competitive with diverse student populations. The high schools are fairly well funded and there's lots of extracurriculars for students to choose from. The rent is just stupid high.
Mountain View allows excellent access to the best of the Silicon Valley, with a calmer and (slightly) slower-paced atmosphere. With a fabulous downtown, great public resources, and year-round outdoors activities, I'd highly recommend the city. The city's best to raise a family, or to settle down longer-term.
It's nice that it's more walkable than most cities in the area. The location is ideal for taking the train to San Francisco or San Jose. The weather is good and jobs are plentiful. There is a bit too much construction going on all over the place and it has made living here unaffordable. The traffic is rising and it feels unsafe to walk around sometimes because the drivers all always in a rush. There are cute neighborhoods, nice libraries and decent restaurants.
A very clean and safe city, it has good restaurants and stores. It's a little boring at times with nothing being new but It's still a nice school. But housing is way too expensive and so is just about everything else.
