The GF got her new travel assignment in Palo Alto and we got the address of the rental apartment, you guessed it, it's in Santa Clara. Does anyone live here, or have any experience with the city? Our goals are to be near Yosemite(check), and Monterey Bay for diving(check). We're leaving San Diego for Santa Clara on the 28th, and I'm definetly looking for partners for big wall climbing. I've got everything but the portaledge.Want to get on leaning tower, el cap, and many others. PM me with info. My schedule is WIDE open weekdays or weekends doesn't matter. Also looking for dive partners, and a good cycling group. Ryan N

Santa Clara is a nice town , definitely more low key and reasonable than Palo Alto and Menlo Park where I live .

Planet Granite , an excellent gym , is right next door in Sunnyvale . You have one of the most interesting and fun cities in the world about 40 minutes up the freeway .

Yosemite and skiing in Tahoe are easily accesible on weekends , IMO you're in a great spot ...

Yea I did a little research. Seems pretty chill. We were bummed when the apartment ended up in Santa Clara instead of Palo Alto, where the job at Stanford is. Nice to hear its still chill. Ryan N
