The City of Santa Clara

Mission Santa ClaraThe City of Santa Clara sits in the heart of Silicon Valley and today it is well known for Mission Santa Clara, Santa Clara University, the Great America Theme Park, neighborhood & civic swimming pools and competitive swim teams, and of course high tech companies such as Intel, Applied Materials and Texas Instruments (among others). Within the San Francisco Bay Area, the construction of the new football stadium has been huge in raising the city’s profile in the eyes of sports enthusiasts. For business people, the Santa Clara Convention Center is a big draw too.

For many Silicon Valley workers, one of the biggest draws to Santa Clara is the shorter commute times it tends to afford. For some, it may also be newer construction and a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood at the Rivermark area.  And others may want to live in Santa Clara near Valley Fair and Santana Row.

I have a particular fondness for what used to be referred to as “The Mission City”  due to its history and continuing presence of the Mission Santa Clara today.  Perhaps I am also biased as I spent 10 years of my childhood living near Santa Clara University and another in the San Tomas Woods neighborhood, and to this day am a frequent visitor at the Mission.  There’s a lot to love, and more reasons joining the ranks every day with the new 49ers stadium on the horizon too.
