Neighborhood Spotlight: San Jose

The largest city in the Bay area, and home to Trumark’s newest community, SP78, San Jose is a vibrant city with top-notch schools, quaint neighborhoods, and endless dining opportunities.

Nestled between the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains and Diablo Range, with over 300 sunny days a year and its proximity to the ocean, the Sierra Nevada, and the vineyards, San Jose is also a haven for outdoor enthusiasts.   

We’ve rounded up a few places that make this innovation inspired community one of the best places to live.

Here’s your way to San Jose.

Wake up and smell the roses.

There is no better way to start off your day than picking up a delicious coffee from Philz and smelling the roses at the Municipal Rose Garden. This 5½ acre garden features over 4,000 rose shrubs, and will have you feeling like you’ve been transported from the city to the countryside. The best time to visit is from April to November when the roses are in full bloom. Sip. Stroll. Smell. Enjoy..

Shop til you drop.

San Jose is home to Santana Row, a European-inspired, pedestrian-friendly shopping village. With your pick of dining options, everything from burgers and Italian to Asian fusion and French, you’ll have plenty of choice’s to refuel while shopping. The Row’s top stores include Anthropologie, Amazon Books, Kate Spade and Sur La Table just to name a few. Not in the mood for shopping? Take a break from the hustle and bustle and enjoy a cheesy slice of heaven from Pizza Antica, or treat yourself to a delicious scoop from Smitten Ice Cream.

Food, drinks, and entertainment.

Located just steps away from our  latest development, SP78, the vibrant San Pedro Square is a lively hub of shops and restaurants with an inviting atmosphere and countless offerings for food and drink. From burgers to Bolognese and hundreds of craft brew taps to the best wines from around the world, San Pedro Square is a fun place with something for everyone. The vendors periodically switch out, so you’ll never run out of new options to try! In addition to food and drink, there are many nightly and seasonal events, including live music, theatre, and trivia.

The heart and soul of the market is the historic Peralta Adobe, the oldest building in San Jose. The Peralta Adobe Plaza features an outdoor seating area, perfect for enjoying lunch, or an evening concert with dinner and cocktails. Across the street from the Adobe, you’ll find the exquisite Fallon House, built in 1855 by one of San José’s earliest mayors. The Victorian mansion boasts 15 fully furnished rooms typical of the Victorian period.
