Welcome to Santa Clara

Santa Clara , located in the heart of Silicon Valley, was ranked #7 on the “Top 100 Best Places to Live in 2015” list from Livability. It is home to Santa Clara University, the oldest institution of higher learning in the state, and Levi’s Stadium, the home of the San Francisco 49ers and the site of Super Bowl 50 (January 2016). It is bordered by San Jose, Sunnyvale, and Cupertino, and is 45 miles southeast of San Francisco. Santa Clara is made up of more than 20 distinct neighborhoods, with offerings ranging from new, luxury apartment buildings to Victorian homes, and suburban-style environments to downtown living. As headquarters for several high-tech companies, including Intel (7,000 employees), it’s perhaps not surprising that there’s free Wi-Fi throughout the city.
