Welcome to Silicon Valley

Teeming with high-tech computer firms and disruptive start-ups, Sunnyvale is part of California’s legendary Silicon Valley. Visiting on business? Sunnyvale vacation rentals will set you up with luxe corporate condos and suites that make it easy to blend business with pleasure. If you need a break from the office, Sunnyvale is a great base for exploring sun-drenched California. Lively San Jose is just a few miles to the east, with Napa Valley Wine Country tours and day trips to San Francisco also well within reach.

Just Google it

If Sunnyvale’s street scene seems a little quiet, San Jose is just a 20-minute cab ride away. After a stroll around the tree lined streets of the historic district, why not stock up on artisan produce at the San Pedro Square Market? Home to tech giants like Google and Samsung, adjoining Mountain View is one of Silicon Valley’s most iconic neighborhoods. While there are no official tours on offer, gazing through the gates of the Google Head Office, aka the Googleplex, is a bucket list activity for Silicon Valley rookies. Hotels in downtown Mountain View can fill up fast, so why not consider Sunnyvale vacation rentals just minutes from Google HQ?

Discover Sunnyvale’s high-tech history

Showcasing tech milestones like the game-changing silicon chip, the Intel Museum is a fascinating introduction to what Silicon Valley is all about. NASA's Ames Research Center is another highlight, offering visitors a once in a lifetime chance to get behind the scenes of the space agency. For thrills, spills, and family fun, California's Great America amusement park is calling, while nearby Levi’s Stadium is a mecca for sports lovers, home to San Francisco’s heroic NFL team, the 49ers. If you’re in town for a big game, Sunnyvale vacation rentals set you up with everything you need to host your pre-game BBQ and afterparty.

Sun-drenched Sunnyvale

Like most of the San Francisco Bay Area, Sunnyvale enjoys sultry summers and mild winters. A string of festivals sweep Silicon Valley in the summer, with Sunnyvale hosting some of the quirkiest instalments. Don’t miss C.J. Olson’s Annual Cherry Festival in late May and the Sunnyvale Art & Wine Festival in early June. NFL season runs from September to February and sees legions of fans descend on Levi’s Stadium. If you want to stay local you’ll need to book well in advance as the city fills up fast.

Nature and relaxation in Sunnyvale

Sunnyvale may be part of the uber-corporate Silicon Valley region, but it doesn’t scrimp on green space. The city is dotted with public parks, including the lush Las Palmas Park and Washington Park in the heart of the downtown core. You can also venture further afield to the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge which serves as a haven for water birds. Nearby Stevens Creek is another great place to stretch your legs, with trails that attract joggers, cyclists, and dog walkers.
