Mountain View California Real Estate

Mountain View California: Ideally situated in the heart of Silicon Valley, Mountain View is home to some 70,708 residents and to many nationally and internationally known corporations. Mountain View covers 12 square miles and is blessed with a moderate climate. Daytime temperature range from the fifties and sixties in winter and the seventies and eighties in summer. It is a dry climate, and even during the hottest periods of summer the evenings are almost always cooler because of the breeze from the San Francisco Bay.

Not too long ago, Mountain View was covered with orchards and vineyards, but the population exploded after World War II, The City's population, fueled by the growth of the electronic and aerospace industries. Today, Mountain View is a modern, high-tech city, but it still enjoys the comfortable feel of a small town, with lots of parks and community activities. Not only is the city laced with smaller community parks, but they also converted a former
landfill site at the edge of the bay into a beautiful, regional park
complete with an 18-hole golf course, bicycle and walking paths, a lake with boating facilities, a wild life interpretive trail, and an outdoor
amphitheater.
