Living in Milpitas
The portion of Milpitas west of the 880 Freeway is primarily given over to tech companies (Cisco Webex has a headquarters here), while the eastern portion of town is more suburban and domestic.
Although quite densely populated, Milpitas town planners have created several green oases within the city, including Pinewood Park, with its shady groves and tennis courts, and Cardoza Park, which contains a sports center and skatepark. The Berryessa Creek Trail begins on North Hillview Drive and passes Hidden Lake Park, where a small reservoir reflects the neighboring townhouses and hillsides.
The Ed R. Levin County Park is the largest park, covering 1558 acres of protected grassland and chaparral. It's a fantastic place for a picnic, a wander, or a spot of licensed trout fishing in Sandy Wool Lake.
Milpitas Shopping and Dining
The Great Mall is a local landmark with high-end designer brands and eateries—over 180 in total. Those who prefer shopping on a less epic scale may want to head into downtown San Jose since malls dominate locally.
Eating and drinking venues are plentiful within Milpitas, with a high proportion of Southeast Asian cafes and restaurants, seafood, and numerous stylish bars along East Calaveras Boulevard.
Fans of Lego love living in proximity to Legoland Discovery Center at the Great Mall, where you can see a replica of the Bay Area built from those famous Lego bricks. For a historical building on a larger scale, the Jose Higuera Adobe Building and Park provides a bookable event venue and hosts an exhibition about the building's history.
While these and other attractions attract visitors, Milpitas is predominantly a well-to-do city that doesn't rely on tourism. It draws residents seeking a safe, smart, suburban lifestyle.
Locals tend to drive everywhere, although a BART terminal provides a ten-minute ride into San Jose.
Milpitas homes range from spacious bungalows to modern apartments with low-rise ranch-style properties in the majority, often with generous gardens.
