Why you'd want to live in Santa Clara
Santa Clara dates back to 1777, founded by the Spanish Missionaries. The actual site of the missionary is currently where Santa Clara University is situated. Outside of the university, you’ll find the majesty of any small town downtown. The Triton Museum of Art is certainly a landmark the residents of Santa Clara are proud of. The small, cozy downtown setting is currently undergoing the efforts of the city officials to develop a plan for the downtown. While the city boasts its own Convention Center, neighborhoods within the city contain older, more charming homes than those found in Morgan Hill or Los Altos CA. In general, Santa Clara real estate (condos, townhouse, and single family homes) is more affordable than Mountain View CA, Sunnyvale CA or Cupertino. Public transportation makes San Francisco and San Jose easily accessible. A temperate climate makes outdoor activities abundantly accessible and is the reason why Santa Clarians have a fond appreciation of nature. Santa Clara is unique among California cities! Santa Clara is a full-service municipality that owns and operates its gas, electric, water, sewer, refuse and storm drainage services at very competitive rates for its customers. Distinctive in every way, Santa Clara CA offers its business community a diverse and exciting environment in which to work and live.
