I've got a job offer in SF city, but I hate concrete jungles. I've live in the suburbs all my life; I'm straight-edged person so I don't drink, smoke or hang out at clubs and bars, so nightlife is not a factor. I would like to live somewhere suburban or as suburban as possible that's within distance of a BART station. Suasalito is nice, but 20/20 reported that women there are popping up with breast cancer like crazy, so that's out of the question. I'm seeing Alameda pop up in forums; but I need some more insight into this. I need to live somewhere, where I can raise a family and not have to see too many *cough* Parades or people with their pants around their ankles and talking like they just came from the BET awards if you know what I mean (that definitely eliminates Richmond). I remember being younger and living near Concord, that was kinda nice but it was a long time ago so I'm not sure if it's still like a small town. I just need some insight here, thanks.

This will not be very hard at all to find. Pretty much anywhere outside of San Francisco would be called "suburban."....if you want to live in a nice area with little ghettoness, I would look at Walnut Creek.

I would also look at the Peninsula (the area between san jose and san francisco) it's not close to BART, but it's close to Caltrain. Caltrain is a BART-like service that takes people from the Peninsula to SF, it runs pretty regularly.

Try Pleasanton. It is quite pleasant and horribly suburban.
