"Nice Suburban Street"

Plaza Drive is a beautiful residential road in the Palm Haven area of San Jose's Willow Glen neighborhood. The street is manicured in a way to represent Hollywood and Los Angeles, complete with towering palm trees, which makes it unique in and of itself. In addition to being attractive and well laid-out, this neighborhood is filled with safe, reasonably-sized homes just minutes from downtown San Jose, and within walking distance of the Los Gatos Creek trail.

Few neighborhoods in this town feel as safe to walk in at night, and while there is not much to do in the immediate vicinity, nearby San Pedro Square and Santana Row offer all of the nightlife that you need. And with minimal fog and warm valley temperatures, you may just be fooled into thinking that you are actually in Los Angeles!
  • Well manicured
  • Nice homes
  • Close to restaurants and nightlife
  • Not for the young and restless
  • Some road noise from 280
