What's it Like to Live in Los Gatos?

"The area is so nice, it has everything that a suburban town has, nice local shops, big houses, farmers markets but it also has things like the Apple Store, lululemon, Starbucks and many other places similar to those chains which is very useful. The weather is pretty good, we still have seasons but it gets nice and hot in summer, and still cold but not freezing in the winter. The public schools here are very good for public education, they are big (the high schools have around 500+ pupils per year) and the kids seem to have support from guidance councillors easily accessible.

It is also a very walkable town, with a cinema, frozen yogurt place and many small businesses in the main town. A lovely farmers market is held there as well, with very fresh produce being sold. Overall, Los Gatos is great town, however it is very pricey making it not ideal for some people so it is something to take into consideration." -
