I lived in Campbell in the early aughts where I had a dog and a stove. While my humble abode of 700 square feet today goes for three times more I still visit the City that I thought I could lead.
There are dogs EVERYWHERE in Campbell you will see them usually with their owners and some are paired with children too
While its great to Orchard Valley Coffee you will enjoy the best darn coffee but you will see everyone from the Chief of Police to the City Council members coming in for the morning constitutional. It is a prerequisite if you plan to be part of the community to come to the Orchard ...plus the wifi.
Campbell City Hall, Police, Veterans Memorial, Library and Ainsley House is all on the same block so you can see why people love it for the Summer Jazz Festival every year.
Campbell Downtown version of Santa Barbara's Downtown so you know I love to go when the sun is just creeping over the hills and I remember walking Peanut getting coffee or sneaking in watching all the farmers market get started
Campbell does have a night life just don't tell the neighbors
