Sunnyvale is recognized as an excellent place to raise a family due to its low crime rates, a highly ranked school system, a high average family income, and Sunnyvale’s great city amenities. Not only that, but Sunnyvale has a single unified Department of Public Safety where all personnel are trained as police officers, firefighters and EMT. Actually, the effort that Sunnyvale puts into maintaining its community parks and providing access to residents is noteworthy.
The parks range from “mini” and “pocket” sizes to vast acreage such as Baylands Park which is over 177 acres. And just to give you an idea of what you might find at one of your neighborhood parks, the Seven Seas Park is pet-friendly and has a dog park, tennis and basketball court, a spray pool, and more. Then you have Stevens Creek which is a 100 acre nature preserve with lush trails for walking, bicycling and even commuting. Sunnyvale has also been dedicated to making environmental-friendly (bike riding) commutes to work simple as recognized by the National League of American Bicyclists.

Also, there are many homes for rent for those looking for a house, but are not interested in owning.
Those looking for a studio apartment with utilities included will want to look towards the northern parts of Sunnyvale between South bay Freeway and W. Evelyn Avenue where the price of living is less expensive. Although this area has less of a residential feel as areas south of E. Fremont Avenue, the trade-off is a closer and very walkable location to restaurants and shopping.
However, for apartment finders looking for a place within the same building as a restaurant, you should check out downtown Sunnyvale. Downtown recently went through redevelopment and is now prime for those wanting the amenities that downtowns generally have (restaurants, shopping, nightlife), but within Sunnyvale. Make sure to check out restaurants such as Dish Dash and Tarragon for some good eats.
