  WHAT’S LIVING IN Campbell LIKE?

Campbell’s a hip Silicon Valley city filled with things to do, restaurants to explore, and nightlife for young and old alike. Residents of neighboring Silicon Valley cities frequent Campbell to shop, dine, and spend their leisure time. A popular publication, Sunset Magazine, named Campbell runner up as one of the best suburbs in the West Coast in 2016.

Campbell isn’t really considered a major player in Silicon Valley's tech scene – while eBay originated here, not many tech companies and startups call Campbell home. That’s not to say it’s lacking in Silicon Valley flavor; the town's culture is very much Silicon Valley.

Neighborhoods here can be broken down into industrial, retail, and residential areas. Downtown is home to many shops, bars, restaurants, and night clubs that appeal to young people all over Silicon Valley.

Amenities-wise, there are plenty of parks and recreational areas. There’s no shortage of shopping options in Campbell, so you won’t have to leave to buy anything. Families, students, and young professional are all prominent groups that call Campbell home.

The lightrail connects to Campbell, offering visitors from neighboring San Jose and other cities easy access when they want to take in all that Campbell has to offer. Conversely, this public transportation system means easy access to surrounding Silicon Valley cities for residents who choose to commute without a car. Despite this, you’ll still want a car to get around without getting frustrated.

Campbell is bordered on the north by West San Jose, on the east by Willow Glen, on the south by Los Gatos, and on the west by Saratoga.
