"Up in the foothills"

You can't live up here unless you have a car. Really. Some places on the street -- particularly major intersections -- are near enough to strip-malls with grocery stores and upscale shops, but those are pretty few and far between. It's almost entirely big houses and residential property in communities just off the street, though there is a huge stretch of country club up there, a high school, and a few apartment complexes.

It was, when I lived there, too far away from the central office to get broadband internet, limiting me to 56k dialup, but the cell reception was great.

As a college student, I found rental prices were outrageous and the only restaurants nearby I could afford to go to were the fast food places. It's really a place for established grownups with jobs, or people who've already retired.

Even so there wasn't much option for them. If they wanted to get to the library (very nice, but also very small) or most of the nearby upscale restaurants, they'd have to drive or spend time hiking miles up and down the tall hills of the area.

There was a bike shop where local cyclists met for rides, and nearby national park space for hiking, but aside from that it was pretty limited in fitness "facilities."

The mass of nearby residential property and the high school mixed with the few lanes made this the busiest street I'd ever lived on. Traffic would be backed up for at least an hour, especially in the morning. Public buses were infrequent: two in the morning and two in the evening, just before and after rush hour.
