While California has several “top cities”, job listings, employment trends, tourist attractions, and other attra ctions, many cities are highlighted only if named “Best Cities” or “Fastest-Growing Cities” by a variety of organizations and financial magazines. These are Forbes.com, CNNMoney, Kiplinger, and several others. California also is home to several cities that provide equally good options, but have not yet, or least often, been pronounced “best” cities.
MOUNTAIN VIEW is one of these cities, with a 167% increase in job listings since 2009. It’s also home to Google. For more cities with real jobs in California, see
