Popular Things to Do in Sunnyside


Most of the shopping in Sunnyside is found along Monterey Boulevard which acts like a Main Street to the neighborhood. Between Ridgewood Avenue and Edna Street, you can find a good collection of local businesses. 


There are surprisingly a lot of eating establishments packed into this small neighborhood. Some of the favorites include grabbing some coffee at Railroad Espresso or grabbing some classic comfort food like a good burger at Big Joe's


Most of the entertainment in the area comes from the community college, the recreation center in the park, and the outdoor spaces. But you do not have to travel far to benefit from neighboring areas that are more bustling. Just five miles outside of the neighborhood boundaries and you are in the bustling city center. 

Sunnyside Real Estate

There is a fun mix of homes in Sunnyside. The area has some spread-out Victorian stunners and has filled in the spaces between them with nicely sized mid-century modern homes. The "newer" mid-century homes offer an average of 4 to five bedrooms which is ample room for a bustling city and hard to find in newer construction homes unless they are on the outskirts of town or in the suburbs.
