The crime is very low if you are away from the east side. Even then, for a continually growing city of over 1 million. The local sports team is major league hockey so during hockey season, there is a lot of excitement going on in downtown. Culturally, there is a good mixture of all ethnicity so food selection is diverse. As more people move in for job opportunities due to the tech industry, traffic is getting worse and worse. Most people are here for the jobs and weather (almost sunny 80% of the year).

The thing that will be shocking about the place is the cost of living. A decent house will cost upward of a million dollars. Living here is a struggle unless you make a lot of money. Everything is expensive, especially rent. If you live anywhere near a big tech firm (Google, Apple, etc), prepare to pay a lot for that luxury. As mentioned before, traffic is a nightmare. Going anywhere during rush hour and on major freeways like the 101 will take forever. Due to property prices, many have no choice but to commute and sit in traffic - adding an extra 1-2 hours to their workday.
