RE: my earlier comment.

There is some good drinking culture downtown.

Also, I noticed that they re-opened the nightclub in the old theater. Tunes there are not my cup of tea but it is the real deal ... line down the street, just like ones in SoMa.

Heck, I'd just characterize Sunnyvale as a pretty nice place to live. It's well located for work (near a lot of major employers like Apple, Texas Instruments, Net App), recreational facilities (lots of parks, a nice community center, library) and retail. It's a generally well-run municipality as well.

Now a days, it has one of the better parks to take our 2 yr old to; Seven Seas Park.

As the poster above mentioned, it's a quiet city. People move to Sunnyvale to raise a family. However, living in Sunnyvale doesnt mean you are blocked off of all the amenities that the bay area has to offer.

The whole bay area is your playground.
15min drive you're at Levi's Stadium for a 49ers game / Great America park. 10min - 1hr you're in downtown San Jose taking in a Sharks game; depending on rush hour . Head north, you're in SF / Head west you're at the beach.
Lol 15 minutes if there's no game, 45 if there is.

Best thing about Sunnyvale was Abyss nightclub. I don't know what it's called now, I think Pure? That and Santa Clara's Avalon gave South Bay folks something else besides the nightclubs in Downtown SJ.

Sunnyvale isn't very entertaining at all can't hold a tune or dance worth a damn and don't get me started on the jokes he tells.

Sunnyvale *used* to be a lot more entertaining than it is now...although that could just be nostalgia talking.

Golfland was a big draw. And you have to remember, that at least back in the day when I was growing up, nearly all businesses were on either Stevens Creek or El Camino...and that was where you were going to find the restaurants, the bars, and the people.

Believe it or not, Town and Country used to be a pretty happening place although that was slightly before my time. The Town Center was big in the 80s. It was the Vallco of Sunnyvale.
