Is the Coast Guard based in Santa Clara?
My husband does aviation and will be stationed at the San Francisco airport. There is also a CG base in Alameda. I dont know if they are in Santa Clara or not.. guess I will find out
Have you thought about living a little bit higher on the peninsula? That commute is killer. Although, there is CalTrain that you can take to BART, which can take you to the airport. Alameda is basically as far north as the airport, but on the other side of the bay.
Where would you suggest living? I was thinking Santa Clara... what do you mean higher on the pennisula? What town would that be? Sorry I know very little about SF, you can teach me
