Cupertino

Welcome to Cupertino

Where innovation and technology blossom

 

Strewn along the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, orchards of peaches, plums, and cherries blossomed and filled the landscape with vibrant colors. This was Cupertino.

 

In time, the farmers left, but the dreamers came. They dreamed of magical devices only hinted at in storybooks. With grit and determination, their visions took root in the fertile soil of Cupertino. Soon, their dreams became designs, their designs became models, and their models became legends. This is Cupertino, and if you share their dream, this is where you want to be.

Local Lifestyle - Living in Cupertino

Cupertino is famous for being one of the founding cities of Silicon Valley. It is no secret that Apple lives here. Apple is not alone, though, as Cupertino is filled with other technology companies and startups. Not surprisingly, many people who live here come from all over the world to work in the booming tech industry. When newcomers arrive, it can be refreshing to realize that most others speak their language: the language of technology. 

 

Cupertino does not resemble a big city with huge skyscrapers. It looks and feels more suburban, with clusters of close-knit neighborhoods and green spaces. When locals are not hard at work inventing the next big thing, they can be found with family and friends enjoying all that Cupertino has to offer.

 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping in Cupertino

Cupertino’s cuisine is influenced by its unique community. One hidden gem is Gochi Japanese Fusion Tapas. People rave about the clay pot and fusion pizza dishes. Eating family-style with friends will enable you to sample a variety of menu items. Gochi provides semi-traditional Japanese low booth seating, so before entering the dining area, be prepared to leave your shoes on the shelf.

 

Another neighborhood favorite, Alexander’s Steakhouse, adds a Japanese twist to traditional steakhouses. Their mouth-watering selections of domestic and Wagyu beef, seafood, and appetizers will not disappoint the discerning palate.

 

Locals like the quirky style of the Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar. They serve generous portions of comfort food, and as the name implies, you can bring Fido, too, because this place is pet friendly. The Lazy Dog’s retro frozen TV dinners designed for takeout are all the rage. They also have gluten-free and vegetarian options and a separate menu for dogs—what is not to love?

 

In addition to great restaurants, Cupertino has ample retailers sprinkled throughout the major thoroughfares. Main Street Cupertino is quickly becoming a new hub with dozens of stores and restaurants all within a short distance. Cupertino Village Shopping Center features a wide variety of specialty shops and is another favored stop.

 

Ardent technology fans that do not work at Apple may want to visit Apple’s famous campus. Although visitors are not allowed inside the headquarters, the company does have a visitor center. The Apple Park Visitor Center houses a retail store with exclusive specialty items, a cafe, and a rooftop deck with views of the famous HQ.

 

Things to Do in Cupertino

The Cupertino Civic Center and Library is a popular spot in the community. The complex has a Community Hall and an adjacent two-story public library. The library hosts fun events for all ages. It has meeting rooms, computers, and of course, books!

 

When residents want to get exercise, they can visit the Cupertino Sports Center. Members can join the basketball league, sports camps, fitness classes, and the gym. Adults aged 50+ can access the Cupertino Senior Center, which sponsors trips, social outings, and various classes.

 

With all of the hustle and bustle of the world, sometimes people need to ground themselves, and what better way to do that than to get out into nature? Many families find Blackberry Farm to be a fun outing. The cafe, pools, and picnic areas are open seasonally. However, the playground, trails, bocce ball, horseshoe, and sand volleyball courts can be used year-round.

 

The McClellan Ranch Preserve is next to the farm but offers a different experience. People are encouraged to visit and learn about the animals at the preserve’s Environmental Education Center. They can go hiking or birdwatching, take classes, or volunteer with one of the restoration projects. If someone wants to hike or ride bicycles or horses, the go-to spot is Rancho San Antonio Preserve. The preserve also sponsors guided activities. Just make sure to check the regulations before visiting.
