Campbell is being called one of the best suburbs to live in on the West Coast.
Sunset Magazine has named the South Bay city (Pop. 40,584) a runner-up to Claremont, in Southern California, as best suburb and declared that it is starting to emerge from the shadows of nearby San Jose, Los Gatos and Saratoga with an active downtown area and a revamping of the Pruneyard shopping center.
And, with a median home price of $908,000, the publication declares the real estate market in Campbell to be "almost reasonable for Silicon Valley."
Other comparable runner-up suburbs are out-of-state choices: Castle Rock, Colorado, and Gilbert, Arizona.
