Milpitas vacation rentals

Charming small-town vibe, big-city perks

Set against the foothills in the northern outskirts of San Jose, and less than an hour south of San Francisco, Milpitas boasts a charming small-town feel with all the benefits of its nearby urban neighbors. Milpitas has plenty of restaurants, bars, and cafes, but most of the area's main attractions are a quick drive from the center of town. The downtown area celebrates the region's storied past, and finding a comfortably appointed Milpitas vacation rental should be easy in this largely residential city.

Keeping the arts alive & thriving in small-town USA

Thanks to a publicly funded arts program, Milpitas's arts scene is surprisingly thriving for a small town, with plenty of galleries, theaters, and concert series happening throughout the year. Dotted throughout the city are parks that serve as perfect spots for picnics and playtime. Horseback riding tours are available for anyone looking to ride up into the foothills and see the city from above. Nab a Milpitas vacation rental downtown to fully enjoy the local scene, with plenty of restaurants and bars all within walking distance.

We're not in wine country anymore! ...or wait, are we?

Thanks to Milpitas's proximity to Napa, some of the region's acclaim spread just far enough north to give the city its own local vineyard. Spend the day enjoying the scenery and a glass (or bottle) of local wine, and be sure to catch some culture afterwards. Check out the local and international artists featured at the Phantom Art Gallery, or take in a performance from either the youth theater program at Rainbow Theatre or the professional company at Calaveras Repertory Theatre. Local favorite hangouts, including a shopping mall, a bowling alley, and a movie theater, will remind you you're experiencing small-town America firsthand.

Pleasant all year round... and we don't just mean the locals

One of Milpitas's best traits is, arguably, its weather. Rainfall is limited, and confined mostly to the winter months, when the mercury hovers in the 40s and 50s. The rest of the year, Milpitas sits comfortably in the 70s, with summer months climbing just slightly higher as the rain stays away. Temps are still pleasantly cool at night, so be sure to pack an extra sweater for your Milpitas vacation rental, or at least hope the living room comes stocked with a cozy blanket or two.

Snug as a bug in the foothills of NoCal

Milpitas is serenely nestled in the foothills. Its most prominent summit, Monument Peak, sits just outside of the city, and the rolling hills are perfectly picturesque. Thanks to the Berryessa Creek watershed, there are also tons of creeks and tributaries flowing through Milpitas, with plenty of surrounding parks for any visitor wishing to take a creekside stroll. Milpitas is also a short drive to the southern tip of the San Francisco Bay, or just over an hour to the coast – perfect for travelers wishing to dip their toes in the Pacific and check that off the bucket list.
