Best child-friendly neighborhoods for commuting to UCB?
I am in the final stages of interviews for a position at UCB and I trying to get a head start on possible neighborhoods that are safe, affordable and relatively child friendly. It seems as though Bay Area rents will blow my NYC housing expenses out of the water. I am bit anxious since we'll be living on my salary until my husband finds a job out there. Any recommendations for places that are at most about 30-45 minutes away from UCB that are friendly for a toddler and has a somewhat neighborhood vibe where one doesn't need a car to get around? Any info on pricing would also be great. It seems as though it's impossible to get a 2 bedroom for less than 3k. Maybe I'm looking for a unicorn. While I have loved my visits to the Bay Area, I fear we may be priced out!
