Life in Mountain View.
Nestled in the heart of Silicon Valley, Mountain View is home to some of the world’s largest and most exciting tech companies. Silicon semiconductor devices were first developed here and given the city’s important status in the tech development scene as well as the free Wi-Fi across the entire city, tech enthusiasts will feel right at home here.
If you enjoy sports, you’ll thoroughly enjoy Mountain View since it encompasses the gorgeous Shoreline Park, a 750-acre nature reserve that boasts waterways, a sailing lake, an 18-hole golf course and a rare bird sanctuary. Cyclists will be able to take advantage of the city’s comprehensive bike sharing system and the extensive network of bike paths.
The city’s diverse population is reflected in the wide range of delicious world cuisines on offer, with the pedestrian friendly Castro Street providing Japanese, Spanish, Indian and Chinese restaurants, as well as boasting an exciting calendar of live events. The Spring Family Parade and a Summer Concert Series take over some of the city’s open air spaces during July and August and in addition to these events, you can enjoy outdoor film screenings in the city. Wine lovers will be delighted by the Annual Wine Walk, and for those who enjoy art when paired with a glass of wine there’s the annual Art and Wine Festival to attend.
Thanks to the pleasant Northern California climate – temperatures in the summer rarely exceed 88 °F and seldom dip below 37 °F in winter – the city is ideal for those with a love of the outdoors. It’s an ideal city to raise a family, with the tax base here helping to support public education and with an outstanding school system and high quality healthcare institutions on offer.
