Super safe, quiet, and family friendly. Commuter town since there aren't many jobs in San Ramon but I love the amount of clean parks and community events. Perfect place to raise a family!

I feel San Ramon should be more known than it actually is. For one, it is not a "small town." The city is relatively large and extensive, as it has a deep history. San Ramon is an amazing suburban area, and rated as one of the places with the lowest crimes and best locations to raise a family. The education system is amazing and all the teachers I have had really care about their students and in their success in ensuring proper education to prepare them for college (which I certainly felt prepared). There are festivals during the summer, and generally a lot of activities one can do and restaurants to visit. Though this town is more on the expensive side to live on, it is well worth the investment as there are many benefits to living in San Ramon.
San Ramon is a beautiful and safe neighborhood. Compared to many other places in the Bay Area, the Tri-Valley feels much cleaner and more secure. Because it's a much more suburban area, a car is definitely necessary. Aside from that, I love this place because it's the perfect blend between the NorCal and SoCal life!
