Fremont-california-city Written by Marquette Carney

Oh, so you’re a California lover, eh?

And you want to learn a little bit more about one of its lesser-known cities, Fremont. Well, good luck with that. Because you won’t find a lot of info online about this city–rumor has it the Illuminati is stationed there. 

Fortunately, I’ve been able to unearth some interesting information about Fremont and let’s just say that some of what I found was not expected. 

So if you want to learn whether or not this would be the perfect place for you, stay tuned while I cover the pros and cons of moving to Fremont California. 

Let’s get started!

Con #4, Cost of living

Let’s get one thing straight about living in the Bay Area. 

You’re going to pay a lot of money. 

“How much money”, I can hear you asking. Well, considering that living in Bay Area has some of the highest costs of living in the country, it’ll be enough to put tears in your eyes. 

The cost of living in this city is 127% higher than the national average. And the median home price is 1.5 million dollars. 

Now, if you can afford that, try to keep it to yourself. Because with slogans like “eat the rich” becoming popular, it might be best to keep your identity secret. 

Especially from me because I will reveal it to the world. 

Con #3, High population density

Surprisingly, there are a lot of people who can afford the outrageous cost of living here.

Fremont has a high population density which means the population is high relative to the size of the city. 

And the growth in Fremont isn’t slowing down. Many experts believe soon the city will be overpopulated, which can cause a whole host of problems. 

One of the main issues residents are already experiencing is traffic. Get this. The national average for a one-way commute is 24.6 minutes. But in Fremont, the average is 33.6 minutes. 

So you’re going to be spending a lot of time in traffic here. But look on the bright side, this way you’ll finally learn the answer to the timeless riddle “why did the chicken cross the road?”

Because you’ll finally be able to ask him. 

Get it? Because you’ll also be on the road…just forget it. 

Con #2, No major shopping areas

If you’re the type of person who likes to do a little retail therapy, I have some bad news. 

In Fremont, there are no large shopping areas where you can get your fix. 

Sure, there are a few strip malls that may hold you over until you can get out of the city. But for it to be such an expensive city, one would think it would have a few luxury malls at its disposal. 

Actually, now that I’m thinking about it. That might be the reason why this city doesn’t have any major shopping hubs. It’s so expensive to live here, that people may not have any money leftover. 

Go figure. 

Con #1, No nightlife

Major shopping malls aren’t the only thing Fremont lacks. 

If you’re looking to enjoy any late-night activities, you’ll quickly learn that Fremont leaves a lot to be desired. 

Just think of the opposite of the word “lit”. That pretty much sums up the city after 9 pm. 

Which isn’t a bad thing if you’re an older man currently making a stinky deposit in your diaper. 

But for the rest of us young, vibrant folk. This is the opposite of the type of life we want to live.

Speaking of opposites, homeandmoney.com provides the opposite of a bad homebuying experience. 

In fact, if you want to actually enjoy the process of buying a home, instead of being stressed out, you have to use their amazing service. 

They’ll hook you up with your very own personal assistant who will help you find an agent, get funding, and basically do all the heavy lifting for you. 

Best of all, the service is absolutely free!

Just fill out the quick form below to get started.

Ok, now let’s check out some pros of living in Fremont.

Pro #4, Weather

Do we really need to talk about this?

It’s California, so of course, the weather is heavenly pretty much year-round. 

Sure, there’s some variance from city to city. But when you live in Fremont, you’ll pretty much get the best of the best as far as weather is concerned. 

Don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll get creative and find some other rich-people problems to replace any bad weather woes. 

Like how poor people are staying up night and day plotting their revenge. 

Good luck sleeping tonight. 

Pro #3, Family-friendly

If your mating ritual resulted in a few mini-screaming humans, then you’ll be happy to know Fremont is very family-friendly. 

For starters, the schools here are amazing. 

They rank high on state-wide and national levels, meaning your little ones will be too smart for their own good in no time. 

But a good education isn’t the only reason why this city is family-friendly. It’s also very safe. 

So safe in fact it’s been voted one of the top 10 safest cities in the country. 

That means the only danger you’ll be in here is a little backtalk from your overly-educated children. 

And if they get too mouthy, just stick them outside where they can burn off some energy while enjoying…

Pro #2, Outdoor activities

There are a ton of outdoorsy-type things to do in Fremont. 

The city has plenty of parks, hiking destinations such as Mission peek, and even a waterpark called Aqua Adventure. 

And when you combine these outdoor activities with the amazing weather, you’ll get the perfect combination of outdoor family fun time. 

And when you get bored of doing things outdoors, you’ll be happy that this next pro exists. 

Pro #1, Location

Residents in Fremont are pretty lucky. 

I mean, yea, the city is lacking in some departments. But when you learn just how close it is to other cities, those problems get nullified. 

For instance, Silicon Valley is only 21 minutes away making it possible to work in the booming tech industry and live in Fremont. 

San Jose is only 22 minutes away and San Francisco is a brief 38 minutes away. 

You’ll essentially be a 20-40 minute drive away from anywhere in the Bay Area which opens up possibilities significantly. 

This alone makes Fremont a dream destination.
