Gilroy is located south of Morgan Hill at the bottom of Santa Clara County. And for several good reasons, it draws crowds from all over the world.
Most popularly, Gilroy is the Garlic Capital of the World, hosting one of the largest food festivals in the country. But it’s also home of the Gilroy Premium Outlets, the Gilroy Yamato Hot Springs resort, the Gilroy Wine Trail, and the Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park. For a small city of just over 16 square miles, there sure is a lot to do here!
Both residents and visitors alike enjoy Gilroy’s attractions, from shopping to entertainment to dining. But what makes the city such a great place to live are the homes, schools, and location.
Gilroy homes for sale include old and new developments, some in gated communities, on large lots, and away from the hustle and bustle typical of the Valley. It’s not uncommon to find sprawling estates here as well, as Gilroy has the land available to accommodate the residences. But even older, more humbly sized homes maintain their charm and value here. With its convenient location, the city has something to offer just about any prospective buyer.
Many commuters reside in Gilroy, made easier by Caltrain’s commuter rail, which operates every weekday. Caltrain extends from Gilroy to San Francisco in rush hour, and stops connect with local public transportation systems throughout the South Bay and peninsula. Drivers can also make use of the 101 Highway or Monterey Expressway to move north or south in and out of the city to San Jose, Hollister, and beyond.
As a growing city, Gilroy continues to add schools to its community. As of now, there are about 15 elementary through high schools in Gilroy, five private schools, and one community college. Of the districts nearby, Gilroy Unified has one of the highest overall ratings according to Great Schools.
