Named for its sweeping mountain vistas, Mountain View maintains its vibrant personality and unique character while still being a bustling center of employment for the entire Bay Area. Home to NASA Ames Research Center and countless tech companies, the town is probably most notable for housing the headquarters of Silicon Valley giants Google and LinkedIn, and is a popular residential choice for their employees as well. Entertainment options also abound in the city, with Shoreline Amphitheatre, one of Northern California’s favorite concert spots, attracting musicians from around the world. The town has a lively, pedestrian-friendly downtown that is flanked with sidewalk cafes, galleries, and boutiques, and also boasts a thriving nightlife.
With both light rail and Caltrain stops at the top of Castro Street, downtown is incredibly convenient to get to, bringing in visitors to enjoy a show at the renowned Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, or dine at award winning restaurants, including Michelin rated Chez TJ. Downtown dining options are limitless and span the globe, from the Vietnamese cuisine at Xanh, to Spanish tapas at Cascal. And while San Francisco is the birthplace of the Mission-style burrito, my favorite around comes from Taqueria La Bamba. With three different locations in Mountain View, everything on the menu is great, but their carnitas are my favorite, hands down.
