The South Bay Area may be known for it's traffic congestion but get off the beaten thoroughfare and fine open road and outstanding vistas. For starters, try Skyline Boulevard (Highway 35), which runs from Los Gatos to the south of San Juan, north along the top of the Santa Cruz Mountains, and offers incredible views of the Pacific Coast and Santa Clara Valley. Call the San Jose Convention and Visitor’s Bureau (800-SAN-JOSE) for more information.
