As the second largest city in Santa Clara County and the fifth largest in the San Francisco Bay Area, Sunnyvale is in the absolute center of the tech scene in Silicon Valley. Sunnyvale is situated on the historic El Camino Real, where residents and visitors can find everything they need. Though it is close to the main industrial heart of Silicon Valley, it has a very suburban feeling. The city has a low crime rate, and 18 of its parks have won awards. With a name like Sunnyvale, the weather is usually pleasant and warm, with an average temperature range in the sixties to low seventies. Nearby San Francisco is very chilly in the summer months, but Sunnyvale tends to have lovely warm days.
Sunnyvale has many lovely parks, a great library, and many arts and cultural events. Foodies can take their pick from cusines like Indian, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, and Vietnamese, as well as bakeries and popular bubble tea hangouts. Go shopping and dining at Murphy Avenue downtown, and be sure to stop at the Sunnyvale Farmer’s market before taking a walk in Las Palmas Park. Look at work by local artists, attend a concert, and explore the past through a local museum.
San Francisco is easily accessible by taking Caltrain from Sunnyvale, and you may enjoy stopping at scenic Stanford University on the way to walk through the historic campus. Wine lovers will enjoy a day trip to Napa Valley for some phenomenal wine tasting.
Sunnyvale is less than an hour from the Pacific Ocean, and close to California’s famous redwood forests. Beautiful Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada is only a few hours away by car if you long for summer exploring or winter skiing. Consider renting a car for the day to explore - it is easy to do with several car rental companies in town. Head to the village of Saratoga for lunch and wine tasting, or ride a bike there if you're looking for a refreshing workout! If you enjoy hiking and want to see old growth redwoods, drive 45 minutes south to Henry Cowell State Park near Santa Cruz, or slightly further to Big Basin State Park. For a good workout and a fantastic photo opportunity, Mission Peak is 30 minutes away by car in Fremont. The toughest day hike in the Bay Area is Mount Diablo - about an hour an a half drive away. Santa Cruz and Monterey are both an hour or two away and are great places to visit if you’d like to go to the beach. Kayak at Moss Landing or Elkhorn Slough, or chill on the beach at Santa Cruz.
Fly into Mineta San Jose International Airport to easily get to Sunnyvale, or take a plane to San Francisco International Airport and take the Caltrain down the peninsula (or just rent a car or take a taxi.) On-demand ride services are easily available in Sunnyvale if you don’t feel like driving.
