The worst part of Santana Row is the parking. Almost anywhere you want to go in Santana Row means traffic jams and long walks from parking.
The variety of expensive shops and restaurants is very good.
The concept of having residences on the top floors of business is a great ideal for those who live there. They do not need a car; just walk downstairs to eat and shop.

Santana row offers so many choices for food, drink and shopping from low to high end it is a destination not to be missed. Go for dinner to wind down or to entertain a client. Go a few drinks to celebrate. Go to pick up a special gift that special someone before heading home. But you must go!

Outdoor shopping area containing many average to fairly good restaurants and several stores crammed into a tight area. Accross from large indoor mall off Steven's Creek Blvd. It is a nice people watching site in San Jose near Winchester Mystery House.

I had a couple of hours to kill in between hockey games in San Jose and I was guided to stop here. It is a neat area - open shopping. Good stores and great little restaurants. It filled my time and the decorations for the holidays - albeit way early if you ask me - they were nice and tastefully done.
