San Ramon Reviews

I've lived in San Ramon since the second grade. It's certainly a safe city and has its own cultural bubble. Driving just 20 minutes away and you'll be in a very different community. Many people come to San Ramon attracted to the quality of the schools. The San Ramon Valley Unified School District has many great schools, all known for having wonderful teachers that help students perform well.
On a side note, because San Ramon is in the California Bay Area, the homes are extremely expensive. Most people who live in San Ramon work in the Silicon Valley which is about an hour commute.
Traffic fluctuates, but an hour is the average. The San Ramon community is also very open to hiring teenagers who wish to find jobs during college.

I love how San Ramon is a clean and modern city. I grew up living here and I am comfortable, happy, and satisfied! The city has a lot to offer with shopping, eatery, and leisure activities. There a plenty of parks and it is mainly suburban.
I consider myself enormously grateful to live in and take an active part in such a well established and wholesome community. This year is San Ramon's 150th anniversary and because of this, our community has taken steps to recognize its past achievements and press forward in further innovation. I have lived here my entire life and it has been an honor to see how diverse the city has gotten and continues to get. The quality of education, safety, and humility is unparalleled in the Bay Area and country and I will be ever thankful to have grown up here.
