San Jose to Santa Cruz Commute  (4 Answers)

Hi everyone,
My boyfriend and I are likely going to be moving to CA to attend grad school. I will be going to San Jose State and he will be going to UC Santa Cruz. We were planning on living somewhere in between the 2 cities but it doesn't look like there's anything we'll be able to afford. Is the commute from San Jose to Santa Cruz as awful as people are saying it is? And if so, does anyone have any suggestions as far as affordable (as cheap as possible) places nearby to live? We would really appreciate any help!

Accommodation near San Jose State Uni?  (5 Answers)

hi all,

I'm looking for a good (read:safe, clean, near Uni, max price per night 90USD)
accommodation in San Jose. Would you have any suggestions as Ramada near the Uni and Fairmont hotel are already fully booked? Any sites that you have found usefull when looking for an accommodation in here? Which areas have good access to the Uni in San Jose?

Most importantly, would it be possible to come on daily basis to the uni from San Francisco and if so, which hotel would you recommend in there?
Target days are in OCT 2010.

Thanks for your replies. Even renting a car would be possible if the accommodation would be a very good value. Any ideas?

Rte 17 Commute  (8 Answers)

Hi

I am moving my family to San Jose area, for a job in Sunnyvale, near Rte 237.
My wife is not liking the "look" of the San Jose neighborhoods, and is getting revved up about living on the coast, near Santa Cruz (Aptos or Soquel).

I don't want to move all the way to CA only to have my wife hate the area, so I'm trying to accomodate with my commute.

What am I getting myself into? Living by the ocean would be a treat, but what is the commute really like? Leaving office at 5, is it 1 hour or 2?

I used to commute from Alameda to Sunnyvale, 5 years ago, before relocating east. Found that bearable.

Thank you for any input!

Best place to locate in the SF/SanJose area for techie & artist couple  (1 Answer)

Hi all,
We're relocating to the Bay area, (born here in CA!)and will be looking for jobs AFTER we pick a place to live. Where would be a good central area to position oneselves for job convenience for a Tech-guy (Oracle, AbInitio, ETL,Data Warehousing,etc.) and an artsy, design/marketing gal?
We're considering Mtn. View, San Mateo, Palo Alto, San Jose, Sunnyvale, Redwood City, Los Gatos, etc. Love Santa Cruz, but don't want to travel over the hills via 17 daily. The other areas seem central to SF and the San Jose corridors, and most have good CalTrain/BART access. Am I correct here?
We really want a great walking/clean/fun/artsy/gardeny downtown - lots of paths, trails, walk to Whole Foods/Trader Joes, etc. We seem to gravitate toward gay neighborhoods - usually the most architecturally and visually cool areas, it seems! Cool, well-traveled people, not too white or old or suburban.
Any tips or ideas for great little neighborhoods?
Thanks Everybody!

living in san jose  (5 Answers)

Hello there,

May be moving to San Jose in the near future, was wondering if anyone out there could tell us the best/worst places to stay or avoid? I have been informed that a townhouse could be rented for1,200 a year, is this accurate?
I will be getting a car so is commutting to work/city centre etc a problem, would there be problems living outside the city centre (e.g San Francisco, Paolo Alto). In general what are roads in Santa Clara area like, use to driving on other side of road, so want to do some research/get some maps before i arrive.

Message board said that close to bay for sailing etc, would it be possible to live near coast and commute to San Jose?

For entertainment/commuting is there late trains/buses to San Fran?

Regards
