My brother and his famlies live in Fremont, a great place to live with wide open space, mixed range of homes (his home sits on the hill with gorgeous views); nice shops, and great schools. This is definitely a very family oriented town and education is number 1 on their list. My nephew and niece also went to the Chinese school on Saturday mornings at the public school. Weather is warmer there, but everything is realtive, I am comparing the place to Marin, which is normally cooler.
Overall a great place to live. They love it there and the kids will be settling down there also.
