Mountain View, California is located in the heart of the Silicon Valley. Mountain View is home to such famous Silicon Valley companies as Silicon Graphics and Google.

Getting Around

For travel within Mountain View itself and the neighboring area, The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) operates bus and light rail service. The Caltrain, which runs all the way from San Francisco to Gilroy stops in Mountain View as well. Caltrain also provides relatively easy access to both San Francisco and San Jose Airport.

Eat

Castro Street is the main downtown area with many restaurants and bars. Asian food is available in abundance, but it is by no means the only choice. Watch the hours of operation; most restaurants in Mountain View are not open very late. There is guide to restaurants in Mountain View online. Some of the highlights are:

There are some wonderful Mexican restaurants in the area serving Poblano style food.

  • Fiesta del Mar, 1005 Shoreline Ave, and its sister restaurant downtown, Fiesta del Mar Too, serve delicious sea food dishes as well as the famous and elusive Enjococado chicken.
  • Vive Sol, 2020 W. El Camino Real, 650-938-2020, specializes in cuisine from the Pueblo region of Mexico. An outdoor seating area makes this a great place to go on a warm summer evening.
