If there was a perfect suburbia, it's name might just be "Blossom Valley." Situated in south San Jose, just northeast of the breathtaking Los Capitancillos Ridge that separates it from Almaden Valley, Blossom Valley's well regarded schools, recreational amenities, outstanding Mediterranean climate and convenient location make it one of the region's best family neighborhoods. And by Silicon Valley standards, it's even affordable.
Populated by soccer moms and little league coaches and interspersed with vestiges of San Jose's agricultural history, Blossom Valley is a short drive from downtown San Jose's cultural resources and Silicon Valley's high technology work centers.
Blossom Valley offer views of Mt. Umunhum to the west, and from higher ground, the lights of the Santa Clara Valley at night. Along the ridge of Sierra Azuls, part of the Santa Cruz Mountains of the Coastal Range, is Almaden Quicksilver County Park, one of Santa Clara County Park system crown jewels. Almaden Lake Park, the city's only park with a sand beach, offers boating, fishing, swimming and windsurfing.
Blossom Valley has all manner of convenient retail shopping, from home improvement to neighborhood shopping and services. The newly renovated Oakridge regional shopping center is anchored by Macy's and Sears and has more than 100 specialty stores.
An excellent highway system and light rail service connects the community to all parts of the valley, and makes it easy to escape to Northern California's ski slopes and mountains to the east, the beaches to the west or San Francisco to the north.
