What's the best part of raising a family in NorCal?

The best part of raising a family in Northern California is that we are so close to so many great activities, parks, museums, theme parks, sports teams, beaches, playgrounds, etc. There is never a lack of family friendly activities to keep us entertained and have some fun! Plus, the weather is so mild we can usually play outside all year round!

What's the biggest misconception about living in NorCal?

I think that when most people think of Californian they think of movies stars, palm trees and beaches -- and while Northern California has some of that, I would say NorCal has a decidedly different (better?) feel than SoCal.

What do your kids love most about living in NorCal?

As Owen grows older I think he'll really appreciate being close to so many FUN places, especially all of the professional sports teams we have near us in the Bay Area. I don't think he'll ever feel starved for culture growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area!
