Among the best places to live in Silicon Valley is Sunnyvale as it is central to all of the Valley from San Jose to Palo Alto and it is a fun community in its own right. However, you will probably need a car or a second car if you have the family with you, unless you are living near a Google shuttle stop, but if you are a keen cyclist a bike might work just as well.
In fact, Sunnyvale was listed by the League of American Bicyclists as a bronze level Bicycle Friendly Community with many on street and off street bicycle lanes and even bicycle-operated traffic lights.
