Located close to San Jose, Santa Clara is definitely one of California’s most underrated towns. Its palm tree-lined beaches and stunning coastline make it the perfect place to relax and get a tan beneath the California sun. Many of the Silicon Valley tech giants have offices here, but it's the nature and the area's history that really highlight Santa Clara.
Santa Clara is the home of the Winchester Mystery House, which has to be one of California’s most fascinating and obscure tourist attractions. The house was constructed by Sarah Winchester, the reclusive widow of William Winchester - inventor of the firearm of the same name. Convinced that her house was overrun with spirits and evil beings, she began constructing a grand yet eerie house filled with hidden passageways, trapdoors, and stairs to nowhere to fool the ghosts. Today, it is possible to visit on a guided tour. Families visiting the area will love California’s Great America theme park, and Boomerang Bay. Other gems in Santa Clara include Levi's Stadium (where the San Francisco 49ers play), a visit to any one of the old Spanish colonial missions, Central Park recreation center, and eating some delicious BBQ in the unofficial Koreatown. Also, pay a visit to Santa Clara univeristy for any number of academic events, concerts, and arts showcases.
Santa Clara sees a Mediterranean-style climate that is warm all year round. That said, arguably the best time to visit Santa Clara is the summer when temperatures are hot and perfect for enjoying a day outside.
