List RulesVote up the points you agree with and vote down the points you disagree with.

Ah, Sunnydale, where the weather's always hot because of the town's proximity to the mouth of Hell. This California town from Buffy the Vampire Slayer may be rife with vampires, demons, and werewolves but there are actually a ton of reasons you'd want to live in Sunnydale. Life on the Hellmouth might not be all peaches and cream, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't stake your claim on some prime real estate. 

Sure, constant invasions at the hands of hell-beasts isn't ideal, but there are so many reasons why Sunnydale is a cool town. For every downside, there are plenty of pros to make you see the sunny side of living in Sunnydale. There's a reason this town is considered one of the best small towns in televison history. If you're thinking of making the move to Buffy the Vampire Slayer's home town, there are more than enough reasons to convince you.

    Real Estate Would Be Hella Affordable

    Living near a Hellmouth would mean a serious slashing on home prices. People keep moving away or dying, so the property values must be insane. There's just way too much supply for the demand. And, really, can you put a price on a two-story home in Southern California with a basement? As long as you're not squeamish about vampires knocking on your door demanding you invite them in, you're looking at the chance to own a home before you turn 35. That's unheard of for most Millennials. What's the odd brush with the undead against being a home owner?

    Halloween Is Next Level In Sunnydale

    No other town does Halloween like Sunnydale. If you love the spookiest holiday of the year, you're in for a treat (and some tricks) when All Hallows' Eve kicks off.

    Once you suit up for Halloween, you can become your costume. So if you fancy being a superhero, a ghost, or a famous person from history, Halloween is your night. You could be Spider-Man, or Marilyn Monroe, or the Kool-Aid Man. The possibilities are both endless, and infinitely more interesting than bobbing for apples.

    Making Friends Means A Bond For Life

    Fair-weather friends are an alien concept in Sunnydale. Nothing bonds a group of humans together like a traumatic experience, and there's no shortage of those in town. If you're looking for some forever friendship, then Sunnydale is the hamlet for you.

    In fact, you could take it one step further and test the limits of "forever." You just have to become a vampire. Some of these guys have been hanging out with each other for upwards of 100 years. Now that's real friendship. Move to Sunnydale: come for the weather, stay for the long-lasting friendships forged in the face of imminent death.

    A Slayer Is Never Far Away

    Okay, so maybe the Hellmouth and the vampires and the demons are too much of a deterrent to make a move. They're not going to be a problem – Sunnydale isn’t just vampire-ville, it's also Slayer-central.

    At first there was only Buffy, but ever since Season 7, when all the potential Slayers around the world were woken up, you'd never need to fear a vampire attack again. Sunnydale is straight-up hemorrhaging Slayers.
