Fun South Bay Destination

Santana Row is one of our favorite South Bay destinations. It makes a great alternative to driving up to San Francisco — and the parking is free!

Inspired by the grand shopping boulevards of Europe, Silicon Valley’s Santana Row blends together shopping, dining, entertainment and residential living in an upscale setting. As you stroll down the tree-lined boulevard (part of which is closed to traffic), you get the feeling that you could be in another country.

The popular European-style promenade features swanky shops and designer boutiques, world-class restaurants, outdoor cafes, luxurious spas, a full-service hotel, live entertainment, a state-of-the-art movie theater, a farmer’s market, and beautiful landscaped parks and plazas.

This is a FUN place to come for brunch, lunch or dinner, catch a movie and walk around afterwards, especially during the warmer summer months and over the festive Holiday Season.

Relax at one of the area's outdoor cafes and people-watch, or shop to your heart’s content. There’s something here for everyone…and for those of us in the San Francisco Bay Area, it’s a lot closer than traveling to Europe!

Santana Row Shopping
Santana Row has a good mix of mid-priced and high-end shops. Even if you don't normally frequent the chic stores, it's fun to window-shop. Overall, it's a fun place to shop and spend money.

Sun 11am-6pm.
