This is a small intimate town where your neighbors are your friends. I have lived here for close to two years now and I love every minute of it. I look forward to coming home each night. The rent is affordable and the people are great! I would recommend this place to anyone who like quiet and friendship. The only noise is the railroad tracks but the train only comes once at night. Also the San Martin airport is nearby but I am training to get my private pilots license so the small planes don't bother me at all. I am friendly with all my neighbors and they are truly my friends. We are there for each other and help each other out when necessary. I love living here!

San Martin is a beautiful little town. It is small and quiet compared to the bigger city's close by. San Martin is just far enough away from the crowded city, when upon visiting one may feel like they are really "getting away." It quaint attractions such as lots of farm animals and rolling hills generate such a relaxing environment. San Martin is becoming more crowded. New homes are rising. As good as this boom is for our economy, we must not let human greediness take away the natural beauty of San Martin.
This town is pretty quiet. There isn't a lot going on, as it's mostly a farming town. The schools severely lack in the arts, as well as the town in general. As an art student, this very much affects my view of the area in a negative way. I would probably not choose to live here again, for that reason alone. I would love to see more art programs being introduced in both the schools and the community.
