I lived in glroy for about 8 years over the course of my life. From 16 to 24 and then a short stint at 29 before I moved to Portland.
What I can tell you is Gilroy is 34 miles from San Jose because all my jobs, school and friends were in San Jose.
Not a whole lot to do in Gilroy.
When I moved their in 1988, the hot teen thing to do was to hang at the safeway in you slammed minitruck. Needless to say, I stayed home.
Besides my dramatic outh, Gilroy is a great place to raise a family.
Gets hot during the summer and you can smell the garlic, onions, & shallots they grow every (EVERY) morning.
If there the last weekend in july, you must go to the Garlic Festival. Hot, packed and some amazing food.
- Pros:garlic, GREAT Mexican food
- Cons:no nightlife whatsoever
- In a nutshell:Once you've eaten garlic ice cream, what's left...
Fight your way through traffic as 250,000+ people visit this town (a day) of 50,000 residents. Get your garlic... more travel advice
