Welcome to Gilroy
The southernmost city in Santa Clara County is richly based in its agricultural roots. Known as the Garlic Capital of the World, Gilroy is still a big producer of the fruits & vegetables that are exported to all parts of the country. Drive through Gilroy and you’ll see beautiful horse ranches, orchards, vineyards (and wineries!). Gilroy also has beautiful community parks and has won more park design awards than any other city in California!
For those who are looking for more urban comforts, Gilroy offers a thriving downtown bustling with events, fine dining, and some of the best shopping around – including the Gilroy Outlets and Crossroads Shopping Center. For home shoppers, Gilroy has brand-new developments at the best prices in Santa Clara County. There’s also an amazing array of resale homes: starter homes, country ranchettes, a gated golf-course community, and private estate homes with breath-taking views. Community resources include 13 public schools, 5 private schools, and a community college. Gilroy is truly Silicon Valley’s best-kept secret!
