The Campbell Community
What’s it like to live in Campbell?
I was born and raised here, and I still love it. Here are four reasons why:
- It sits at the hub of San Jose, Los Gatos, and Saratoga, so it’s in the middle of everything. It’s only 45 minutes from San Francisco or the Santa Cruz beach. It’s easy to get in and out with the light rail system, which takes you right downtown.
- It’s active and walkable. You can easily walk to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife, and you can walk, jog, or cycle to Los Gatos or Willow Glen on the Los Gatos Creek Trail.
- It’s a good fit for small and large families: it’s great for families with children because it still has a small-town feel but is close to so many urban opportunities. It’s also a fun place to live if you’re single because of its restaurants, clubs, and shopping. There are plenty of single-family homes as well as multi-family apartment buildings and condos.
- Downtown Campbell hosts a variety of activities that get you out of the house to meet your neighbors, such as the Sunday Farmer’s Market, First Fridays (music), Second Saturdays (art, entertainment, and shopping), summer concerts, two annual festivals, and Wine Walks in the fall and spring.
Questions About Campbell?
My firsthand knowledge of the area gives you the inside scoop on the best neighborhoods for singles and families, up-and-coming areas, and appropriate pricing, as well as interesting historical facts.
For instance, did you know that the Pruneyard Shopping Center was once a large prune and pear orchard? I remember playing in that orchard as a child. And did you know that Ainsley House used to be located at the corner of Hamilton & Bascom Avenue, where eBay now resides?
