Gilroy / Morgan Hill
A peaceful 45 minute drive south down the historic 101 will land you in the fabulous agricultural community of Gilroy and the town of Morgan Hill; a mix of rustic down home ranches and stunning golden wine country. These cities are rich with history, activity, dining, shopping, arts and nature and are truly hidden gems, often overlooked.
Families rave about Gilroy Gardens, those looking for designer deals can't get enough of the Gilroy Outlets and they come by the tens of thousands for the Annual Gilroy Garlic Festival making "Roy" well worth the wander.
Sipping your way through Morgan Hill is also a bucket list item. Less pretentious than some of the other areas that boast fine wine but just as spectacular, Morgan Hill specializes in historic, small, family-owned vineyards that produce well respected wines and provide a perfect landscape for enjoying them in. Guglielmo, Solis, and Fortino Wineries, Kirigin Cellars and Sarah's Vineyard are among the several choice venues to explore on a vino inspired day trip!
