Santa Clara Reviews

I live in Hayward California. It is a really nice area to live in. People are friendly and the whether is great. It is safe to walk outside at night. There is no fear of being out after dark. I would much rather live somewhere life Fremont or Castro Valley, but this will do just fine.
