I'm a recent college grad wondering where in the San Jose or Santa Clara area would be best to live. I want to be close to restaurants and shops and cafes, in a safe neighborhood, but one that's not too quiet. Any advice is much appreciated.

Anything around Bascom or Lincoln should suit you well.

Palo Alto

Lots of rentals; Stanford grad students and post-collegiate crowd

Many important co. founders and senior execs in SV reside in PA

Would want to live amongst crowd that potentially maximizes one's career mobility

Campbell - Welcome to Downtown Campbell (http://www.downtowncampbell.com/about.php - broken link). There's a light rail line that goes into San Jose.

I am not much of a night club person, but I live in downtown SJ and love it. However, you do have to be picky about the housing stock here. It tends to be high end (expensive) or low end (overpriced for what you're getting and dumpy). Palo Alto is great, if you can afford it. Mountain View also is cute. Campbell also has a cute downtown but it would be last on my list. But it's true, they do have a light rail line going through there now.
