Welcome to Santana Row, the premier destination for shopping, dining, living, working, and playing in the heart of Silicon Valley! Located in West San Jose, the 42-acre “village within a city” is a vibrant mix of luxury residential and retail spaces, complete with a wide selection of top-notch restaurants, shops, spas, and salons, as well as an array of cultural, entertainment, and outdoor activities.

Santana Row was first developed in 2001-2002 at the cost of $450 million, and was at the time regarded as “the most ambitious project of its kind in the United States.” The development was tragically interrupted in 2002 by a major fire that destroyed one of the buildings and displaced 132 people, but Santana Row was soon back on its way to becoming one of the most popular destinations in Silicon Valley.

Today, Santana Row continues to be the premier destination for dining, shopping, and entertainment in the Silicon Valley area. With over 50 stores, 30 restaurants, a 10-screen CineArts movie theatre, and the luxurious Hotel Valencia, Santana Row has something for everyone.

To refuel during a shopping spree, visitors can enjoy live music and outdoor yoga classes in the outdoor parks and plazas.

In addition to the shopping and dining, Santana Row offers a variety of attractions for visitors to explore. Here are some of the top things to do and see at Santana Row:
