Sunnyvale

A historic Main Street and Silicon Valley modernities.

Welcome to Sunnyvale

 

Located on the northwestern edge of sunny San Jose, Sunnyvale is situated along the historic El Camino Real and Highway 101. Sunny, pleasant weather, outdoor parks, and plenty of entertainment options are anchored by a quaint historic district along Murphy Avenue. Residential homes ranging from classic Craftsman bungalows up to brand-new modern estates

Greatly influenced by native American and Spanish influence, the community has since grown to include hundreds of thousands of square feet of retail and office space. These marvels of the future stand side-by-side locally dun alfresco dining establishments in a historic setting cradled between the mountains and the Bay.

Local Lifestyle

Sunnyvale residents enjoy a mild, enjoyable climate year-round. This great weather is best enjoyed in the company of Mother Nature at one of Sunnyvale's several parks, hiking trails, or while relaxing on the patio of one of Murphy Avenue’s several alfresco dining spots. On the weekends, Murphy Avenue hosts the local farmers’ market, where visitors can buy produce, baked goods, and other handmade artisan items from local businesses. The historic El Camino Real runs through the center of town, leading down into central San Jose and along the western edge of the bay into breezy San Francisco.

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

While Sunnyvale is home to a number of American and California-inspired dining establishments, Murphy Avenue boasts a wide array of exotic, fragrant flavors from every corner of the globe. DishDash is a Northern California favorite, with a few locations around the area. Established by a Palestinian immigrant in 2001, DishDash has grown at exceptional speed over the years. Kebabs, lamb, and beriani dajaj are some of their most iconic dishes served in colorful digs in the heart of Murphy Avenue.

Historic downtown Sunnyvale is a haven for shopping, dining, and vibrant celebrations. Recent expansion efforts include an additional office, commercial, and residential space to complement the already existing 150 acres of historic sites, sounds, and smells.

Northern California is home to some of the nation's most beautiful scenery, frequently enjoyed in one of the communities' well-maintained parks or on their extensive trails. The Sunnyvale Skate Park is a unique way to enjoy fun in the sun whether you’re an avid skater, a beginner, or just a people-watcher. Sunnyvale is also positioned along the San Francisco Bay Trail, a 500-mile master-planned walking and hiking path encircling the entire Bay, passing through all nine of its major cities.

Every Saturday, historic Murphy Avenue hosts one of the most popular year-round farmers’ markets in the area. Local produce, baked goods, and fresh flowers are just a few of the treasures to be found at this essential weekend stop, a local favorite since 1997. While Sunnyvale is fraught with opportunities for brunch, outdoor recreation, and other modern comforts, residents enjoy close proximity to both San Jose and San Francisco, knowing last-minute getaways are all within arm’s reach.
