Los Gatos, California

A picture-perfect community

Los Gatos is tucked away in the hills just east of the Santa Cruz Mountains off of Highway 17. Though it is a smaller community, there is definitely not any lack of things to do in Los Gatos. There are many parks and playgrounds to enjoy the outdoors, and the Los Gatos Creek Trail runs just outside the downtown area for five miles both north to the Vasona Park, or south to the Lexington Reservoir. The downtown area on North Santa Cruz Avenue is full of trendy boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and cafes. The quaint atmosphere and historic architecture makes spending a day window shopping and grabbing a bite to eat a delight.

Not to be outdone by the plentiful tech companies of its surrounding neighbor cities, Los Gatos is proud to be the headquarters of Netflix. Other tech companies are just a short commute away using the major highways bisecting Los Gatos.
