Located just moments from the heart of Silicon Valley, Los Gatos is a captivating city which thrives between its economic base and beautiful surroundings. Los Gatos is at the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains, and is known as the “Gem of the Foothills.” John Steinbeck called these mountains home and described them as “so beautiful I am embarrassed to live here.”
Since 1887, the Town of Los Gatos has welcomed both travelers and settlers into the warm embrace of its friendly, European-like village. Quaint merchant buildings house lively restaurants, coffeehouses, galleries, and boutiques while resplendent Victorians surround downtown’s historic center. The town is famous for its ordinances designed to protect older buildings, such as these Victorian buildings. There is newer housing, however, and it tends to be situated on large wooded lots.
Recreational opportunities are numerous and close at hand. Miles of nature trails beckon walkers, hikers, and bikers while perfectly-shaped benches invite visitors to sit a spell and watch the activities of a farmer’s market, children’s parade, or the everyday goings on of a remarkable little town. Los Gatos is a place where there’s always something happening, always somewhere to go, always something to do.
