While Sunnyvale may be home to several high-tech companies, the city is far from all work and no play. The historic downtown is home to the Shoreline Amphitheater, a variety of restaurants and specialty shops, and numerous municipal and private golf courses. For an energizing day trip, hop in the car and head to nearby San Jose, the gateway to Northern California and the third largest city in the state. From here, the beautiful beaches of Santa Cruz, the natural wonders of Northern California’s state parks, the wineries of Napa Valley, and the excitement of San Francisco are all just minutes away—not to mention the vibrant Santana Row and cultural attractions of San Jose.
Larkspur Landing Sunnyvale is just 45 minutes south of San Francisco and 1.5 hours from the historic and stunning Monterey Peninsula. Other local area sights include the Tech Museum of Innovation, the Winchester Mystery House, Paramount’s Great America theme park, and the entertainment and sporting venue HP Pavilion.
