"Nicest Neighborhood in San Jose"

The Palm Haven neighborhood was originally designed, architecturally and plant-wise, to look less like a Bay Area residence and more of a glamorous Los Angeles development - and the design actually worked! Unlike some of the poorer areas of San Jose, Palm Haven Avenue has large homes, swimming pools - and yes, plenty of palm trees.

While not the coolest, hippest neighborhood in town, San Jose does have a little bit of its own bar scene - not to mention access to the nearby Santa Cruz Mountains, Los Gatos, Palo Alto, and Mountain View, all of which have some great bars and restaurants. And with San Francisco less than an hour away, the area is a surefire bet for fun for all ages, even if the neighborhood itself doesn't quite do the trick.

You may not see celebrities driving in and out of their mansions, but Hollywood A-Listers are replaced by Silicon Valley superstars in this beautiful suburban San Jose neighborhood.
  • Very nice homes
