Los-Gatos is south of San Francisco, between Palo Alto and San Jose, and just off Highway 17 as it begins its climb into the Santa Cruz Mountains. With a rich history and a rich culture, Los Gatos has a bit of a Mediterranean feel to it. The Los Gatos Creek Trail, Lexington Reservoir and Los Gatos Mountain Trail provide ample outdoor recreational opportunities, while in town you will find historical sites and beautiful parks and museums. Lots of people come from nearby San Francisco and San Jose to escape the pressures of city life and experience "the good life" of California in Los Gatos. Beautiful scenery, balmy weather, fine dining and interesting shops and boutiques, and easy access to major highways makes Los Gatos a perfect weekend retreat, or a great home base for longer vacations. Some of the other interesting attractions in town include the Art Museum of Los Gatos, Kotani-En Japanese Garden, Science Museum of Los Gatos, and the Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad and Bill Mason Carousel. But more than anything else, this is a place to unwind and refresh. Take your time and stroll Main Street exploring the shops, and maybe stop for a drink at one of the upscale pubs. Experience the way California was meant to be enjoyed in the charming village of Los Gatos!

Los Gatos Weather & Climate

Mild weather without extremes best typifies the climate of the north-central coast of California near San Jose. Located midway between San Francisco and Monterey Bay, this region has over 300 days of sunshine per year and an average annual temperature of 70 degrees. Most evenings are cool - even in summertime - but pleasantly so. Days are neither too hot nor too cold, and most precipitation is received October through March in the form of rain. In summer, a seasonal blanket of fog often hugs the coastline and can block out the sun for days, although usually it burns off by midday. Fall is often the sunniest and warmest season, without the fog of summer or the clouds of wintertime.
