There are not many options for quality dining in the area, except for a few chain restaurants. Most of the late-night food places available are fast-food chains. I do not go clubbing, but as far as I know there are no popular nightlife options for dancing or clubbing in the area.

I used to live in South San Francisco and it was very tight and crowded. It made me just a tiny bit anxious. In the area where I currently live, there is much more open space for me to see and take in. The place calms down my nerves and lets me unwind feel very free.
The weather in the area is dry, for the most part. There is not much threat of major earthquakes or flooding very often. The weather doesn't require much special clothing other than a jacket for colder weather in the mornings.
