our first stop on our tour of

California's best city starts in

Guadalupe while lots of people in

California might be like are you kidding

me

when you look at the data Guadalupe is

actually a great place to live crime is

the tenth lowest suah stayed in

Guadalupe has the third best public

schools in California Plus Guadalupe

residents are in the top 10 for income

level finally unlike other California

cities traffic in this part of the state

is hardly a thing

meaning no long commutes people our next

best city to live in California is La

Mirada the unemployment rate here is

staggeringly low at just 3% it's

relatively safe in La Mirada and the

housing market is solid and if you like

sunny days La Mirada is your place it's

a kind of place that you can just chill

yo however the public schools aren't as

good as other districts in the state so

your kids might not be getting the best

education continuing our best city tour

of California we come to Goleta this

coastal city ranks 11th and income

levels fifth in school spending and

there are hardly any vacant homes that

means lots of people want to live here

crime is fairly low and public schools

are also solid if you live and Goleta

you're probably straight chillin if

you're looking for a great place to live

you might want to consider Cupertino

believe it or not Cupertino families

command some of the highest incomes in

the country and people here are pretty

cheerful Plus each Cupertino resident

gets about a thousand dollars more each

than the state average Cupertino sure

beats some of the other in the middle

and nowhere places in California where

you could call home Aliso Viejo comes in

as the sixth best city to live in

California well there's a ton of places

in California where people are pretty

backwoods you won't find that in Aliso

Viejo the residents earn on average the

third highest incomes overall Aliso

Viejo is seventh for crime too however

the bad side of Aliso Viejo is commute

times there aren't too many other places

in California while you'll sit in the

car longer than lead to and from work

despite the fact that many people

haven't heard of it before

San Lorenzo is actually a great place to

live families are comfortable here and

the housing market is doing just fine

thank you very much and it seems that

just about everyone in San Lorenzo

in a good mood all the time no surprises

here the Mission Viejo is one of the

best places to live in the state Mission

Viejo can be really really boring and if

you're a team growing up here you

probably want to shoot yourself but it's

time to grow up and look at this from an

adult perspective Mission Viejo takes

number one in three categories it's the

safest place to live the unemployment

rates one lowest in the state and

surprisingly commute times aren't that

bad basically if you don't have a job in

Mission Viejo it's because you simply

refuse to work where's the third best

city to live in California you might be

surprised to hear it but it's Piedmont

not only is Piedmont one of the most

beautiful cities in the state it has

great schools and low crime plus it's

not very crowded and if you want to get

away to a bigger city it's easy yeah

people in Piedmont have it made this

might not be a very popular opinion but

when you look at the data San Carlos is

in the second-best city you can live in

California people here are really

successful in folks in San Carlos earned

pretty decent salaries that means you

can retire a lot earlier plus you don't

have to watch her back all the time

since crime really low people in San

Carlos are smart to live here and their

kids are also pretty bright and where's

the best city to live in California that

would be Foster City surprised

households in Foster City are in the top

20 when it comes to income and not only

do foster city folks have great salaries

but most of them are employed plus you

have a ton of stuff to do within a short

drive vector and a lot of sunshine low

crime and lots of friendly people and

you've got one hell of a place to call

home

if you live in Foster City or any of the

other California cities you mentioned

congratulations You certainly have a

reason to smile
