Any opinions on living in the town of Santa Clara, either as a renter or home owner?

The southern neighborhoods are much nicer with more character. The areas from the university over to Valley Fair are pretty good. The further you get to Sunnyvale, the more sprawly it gets.

Santa Clara is an overall great suburb. The only one drawback, depending your likes and dislikes, is that it's a typical suburb.

I like the area right behind the Lexus dealer on Stevens Creek.

It's mostly sprawly, but then again so is most of San Jose. I'd also check out Willow Glen and the Rose Garden areas of San Jose.

It gets that way to the north and the south in the valley, regardless of city. North San Jose is very bad with it, and that's right next to the northern part of Santa Clara.
