The Silicon Valley hub of Los Gatos, California, is one of the wealthiest towns in the United States, but its tourist attractions— among them historic buildings, scenic parks, and wineries— reflect its more humble beginnings and agricultural heritage. Stay at hotels in Los Gatos and you can spend your days hiking or biking in the sun-bathed foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, taking the children to one of many delightful parks, or strolling around the boutiques and cafes of a historic downtown.
Los Gatos is approximately 11 miles from San Jose International Airport, close enough to make taxis and public transportation (via VTA buses and trains) both convenient options. A number of local limousine and shuttle companies offer services that you can book in advance. The airport also has a rental car center.
After checking into your Los Gatos hotel, you might like to stroll along Summit Road where several local wineries have tasting rooms. It's just a short walk from downtown. If you're visiting with children, head to Oak Meadow Park where you can ride on a working miniature steam locomotive built in 1905. The park also features a historic carousel. Vasona Park surrounds a large lake where you can rent pedal boats and kayaks. Among the most impressive historic buildings in Los Gatos is the circa-1880 Forbes Mill Annex. It was the first commercial building established in the town, and is now a history museum listed on the National Register of Historic Places. With Los Gatos rental cars you could soon be exploring the picturesque, fog-shrouded hills of San Francisco just 50 miles away. If one day isn't enough time for you to see all the sights of the city, which include Golden Gate Park, Alcatraz Island, Fisherman's Wharf, and Chinatown, look into hotels in San Francisco, CA and spend a night or more there.
