There were plenty of stores & beautiful outdoor restaurants I wish I could've gone to. A lot of it reminded me of Paris France. Plenty of dog lovers everywhere with dogs wondering about the area. Nice clean place to visit! Which is a huge bonus for me!

I was staying at a hotel in Milpitas (business trip) with nothing around it, and was very grateful I discovered Santana Row. Parking was pretty easy, and this is a great area to walk around in the evening. A nice variety of shopping and restaurants to choose from, and several benches to just sit and people watch. Also highly recommend... More

In the midst of Silicon Valley, this row of shops and restaurants is a good place for lunch, an evening out for drinks or dinner or just a wander. There is ample street-side seating to just relax and take in a bit of the California sunshine. The place has neatly decorated streets and is quite unusual. Check out the website... More

Apart from Los Gatos this is definitely one of the nicest areas in Silicon Valley! A wealth of fantastic restaurants, great shopping, lovely boutique hotel, Tesla showroom - everyone who comes to the area should make this a destination of choice. Lovely.

Of course there is all sorts of shopping, but there is also a cinama, hotels, and plenty of great restaurants too! There's a wonderful center walking mall, with areas to relax and people watch or listen to music, play chess, or read a book. Parking is easy once you become familiar with the overall layout. Weekends get super crowded so... More

I really loved santana's row. I loved the variety of shops and restaurants, and though many of the shops were very expensive gucci stuff (all which I can't afford) it was still a lot of fun to wander around and spend a few hours. My new favourite paper store is there...shame it's 3000 miles away from home haha! Explored both... More

I loved Santana Row, and didn't get nearly enough time there. I guess the shopping is "HIgh End" but coming from Los Angeles, and knowing places Like Rodeo Dr and Santa Monica Promenade, this sits somewhere in the middle. This place is a little piece of Europe, and I LOVED it!! The shopping is great, the ambiance is clean and... More

This is a strange place to review. It can and does have two sides to it, one good and one not so good. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and it was a zoo of a place! Thousands of people crammed into a small street, music blaring on every corner and different music at that. Hot, noisy, rude people on... More

This place has amazing restaurants and shops and is where the rich play. It was great getting dressed up and walking around and seeing all the expensive cars and clearly wealthy people hanging around.
