Living in Santa Clara
Although less bustling than some of its neighbors in terms of nightlife and the downtown scene, Santa Clara is a sought-after location, particularly for those who work in the city’s many start-ups and tech companies. Its proximity to San Jose, including the Norman Y. Mineta airport, makes this a convenient and desirable area to call home.
It’s also home to the San Francisco 49ers NFL team, whose stadium lies at the city's heart and hosts up to 70,000 fans. Fittingly for a Silicon Valley sports facility inaugurated in 2014, it has won awards for sustainability and technology. Tech lovers can also visit the Intel Museum nearby and dig into the history and significance of semiconductors.
Two of the finest nineteenth-century heritage homes in Santa Clara are the Italianate James Lick mansion and the Queen Anne Charles Copeland house. By contrast, most modern homes in Santa Clara are more modest in scope, with a mixture of apartment complexes and one or two-story houses, most with well-kept gardens. Neighborhoods contain wide, tree-lined avenues with plenty of Californian palms to provide shade.
Art lovers can visit the Triton Museum of Modern Art, which holds a large selection of historical and contemporary Californian art, including the work of current artists. The museum has readings, talks, and film screenings, too.
For something a bit more active, the city boasts a popular amusement park, California’s Great America, which includes rollercoasters, traditional carousels, and the South Bay Shores Waterpark.
Residents of Santa Clara tend to be affluent and active, and you'll find gyms, climbing facilities, and many parks where locals exercise. The largest of these is the well-managed open space alongside the Guadalupe River to the city's north. Southern residents are well-served by Central Park’s grounds, ornamental ponds, and shady groves.
Town Center, Westfield Valley Fair, and Rivermark Plaza are three shopping centers within the city. To the south, El Camino Real has the highest concentration of restaurants and cafes in town. Much of the city's west is devoted to Mission College and a dense nexus of tech companies between the college and Levi's stadium.
