We are looking to relocate out of the Bay Area. We are a small family of three, two adults in their early 50s and our 6-year-old daughter. Our priorities are close to mtn biking, a lively downtown, above average schools within walking distance, sunny days, and within one hour to an airport. Our budget would be about 500K. We are currently considering Folsom, CA, Longmont CO, and Boise, ID, but friends have asked us to consider Carson City so we are exploring it (and perhaps Reno). Jobs are not currently an issue, but the husband is a software engineer and may eventually need to find a new job. Would love to hear from others who have moved from the Bay Area or elsewhere or anyone else who lives in these areas. Thank you.

I think you'll find that Folsom and the El Dorado Hills are a lot more wholesome for a family.

That, and you'll still have all of the culture and sophistication of Northern California right at your doorstep.

You'll also be in a much more pleasant climate with less wind. The western side of the Sierras may be more expensive, but that's also because it offers so much more too.

Perhaps, but we are in the crux of needing to save for retirement and college and lagging with both. So at this point, we are planning to leave CA. But I didn't want this to be a discussion regarding the high cost of CA, or an argument about the CA migration, which is why I avoided bringing up finances. Because if we were younger and had more time, we would stay where we are. So still would love to hear from other families living in Reno.

I believe you have some responses in the Reno forum, as you may have seen.
