The southern part of Sunnyvale is primarily residential. To the south/west (of El Camino Real), the city is highly desired for its inclusion in the Fremont Union High School District (otherwise known as ‘Cupertino’ schools). To the north, it is known as a convenient commute to some of the biggest names in tech and defense in the world including Lockheed Martin, NetAp, Intuitive Surgical and Juniper Networks.
Sunnyvale includes many parks, including a large community garden. Schools are within the Sunnyvale School District, Cupertino Union School District, and Santa Clara Unified School District. Sunnyvale has some historic homes, some Eichlers, but the vast majority of the homes are ranch style. Sunnyvale has a broad offering of culturally diversified restaurants for great dining!
