(30ft radius subtracting some room for a elevator serving all floors) apartments. That's enough room for a family of 4 that only sees each other at mealtimes. And that's just in a modified silo...(of which it has 3) the Titan 1 underground complex itself has roughly 45,000 sq.ft. of floorspace in the command center, generator room, comm center, and corridors (12ft wide corridor is plenty room for small shops and lean-tos). Wasteland conditions would probably require more crowding...so say cram in 10-15 people per floor in the apartments (still plenty of room...almost luxury) and only have kitchen/bathroom facilities in a refitted command center...Now we're talking a thriving community 500+ strong, with room to expand...as well as acres of surface covered in bolt-holes leading back underground!
It also fits in the area...there were 6 Titan 1's in Denver, Clorodo alone, and the Southwest was just littered with them andthe smaller Atlas sites. you can check floorplans for them here: http://www.chromehooves.net/missile_silos.htm
and see the locations here:
And yes...people in real life actually buy these decommissioned sites and refit them as safety shelters just like I said.

California does have several former Titan and Atlas missile silos at Vandenberg Air Force Base. As well as 3 more former Titan missile silos north of Sacremento.
There are also underground coastal defense batteries in San Francisco and San Pedro.
Santa Ana is also home to Fremont Elementary School, which was built underground in 1973. The school's playground is actually on the roof.
Additionally, there are a number of former AT&T Communication Bunkers all over the state. Including one near Barstow which was purchased by vivos so they could sell bunker space to gullible suckers.
There are also the Tunnels to Nowhere located in the mountains just East of Los Angeles. Some large concrete tunnels that were started in the 1960's but never completed.
As a side note, there are also various interesting museum ships in California.
San Diego has a Soviet Submarine, the USS Midway and USS Dolphin. It is also home to Coronado Naval Base.
Long Beach Harbor has another Soviet Submarine and the RMS Queen Mary.
San Francisco has the USS Hornet, USS Red Oak Victory, USS Pampanito, various other vessels kept as part of the Mothball Fleet.It also has Alcatraz Island, one underground tunnel (Yerba Buena Island Tunnel) and one underwater tunnel (Posey / Webster Tube Tunnel).
