We live in the Bay Area, what is also known as Silicon Valley. Given the type of out-of-town company we have had, I think it’s fair to say they think we live in a pretty non-exciting location. It is very difficult to impress our company when they come during the winter time, because it is mostly raining. There is no snow, just rainy and cold. Many times, I actually had to find local venues on the internet that would be of interest to them.
We never really noticed, but perhaps we are deprived of exciting venues. There are few local attractions, but they are not for everyone. What pleases one group bore another to tears. We have some tourist attractions but they are mostly an hour or so away, and best to be seen in the summer time. I guess we are happy just to work here, eat here, and play elsewhere.
Silicon Valley is really about technology companies. If you want to see the Google Facebook, EBay, Intel and etc. headquarters, well you would be in the right place. Other than that, we have your typical museums, theme parks, hiking places, fabulous restaurants, gorgeous scenery, some huge malls, and FANTASTIC weather. Silicon Valley never gets too cold or too hot for long. The beach is about ½ hour away, and the snow is three or four hours away.
