Living in Northern California
When you think of Northern California, you might picture the scenic Golden Gate Bridge,
the beauty of the Napa Valley, or the high-tech world of Silicon Valley. But Northern California is more than waves,
wine, and über-sophisticated technology. (Though we Northern Californians do love all of those things!)
From the cosmopolitan to the countryside, you'll find a range of landscapes, climates, communities, and
scenery to suit your needs and your lifestyle. Whether you dream of sailing the bay or surfing the waves,
snowboarding the Sierras or hiking Yosemite, attending the opera or strolling the vineyards, you'll discover
the cultural and recreational diversity that makes Northern California one of the most desirable places in
the world to live and work.
