Morgan Hill Offers The Best To Both Residents And Visitors

If you are looking for a well-appointed city with everything modern life and the beautiful California terrain has to offer, look no further than Morgan Hill. With just shy of 50,000 residents, Morgan Hill has all the amenities you could need and a well-to-do atmosphere too.

Morgan Hill sits at the tip of Silicon Valley and is popular both as a commuter town for the Silicon Valley area and as a place for Valley workers to come and enjoy some downtime. Morgan Hill is known for its luxurious accommodation, excellent food, wineries, and of course, its part in the tech scene. Several large tech companies have their headquarters in Morgan Hill, and the area is vibrant and exciting.

In 1835, the area known as Morgan Hill was given to Juan Maria Hernandez, as part of the redistribution of land to Mexican citizens in the United States, following Mexico's independence from Spain. Not long after, an Irish-born citizen of Mexico, named Martin Murphy, acquired the area. After Murphy's father died, his mother married a man named James Dunne, and by 1870, the family-owned 70,000 acres in the Morgan Hill area. Even today, residents recognize the Murphy and Dunne families and significant players in the area's history.

Enjoy A Delicious Stay In Morgan Hill

Morgan Hill is renowned for its fine dining, and there are several Michelin starred eateries in the area. Visitors will find everything from European-inspired cuisine to traditional American grill joints, and of course, plenty of places that make use of the local California seafood. Some of the finest places to eat in and around Morgan Hill include:

  • Rosy's At The Beach, where visitors can enjoy fresh fish and seafood from the Moss Landing area.

  • La Foret is an upscale establishment that offers the finest French dining. There has been a building on this site since 1848, and La Foret has been in operation for four decades. Their cuisine is cooked in the classic French style that means taking time to tease out the flavors. Diners can savor such entrees as Chambord-poached salmon, veal tenderloin with shitake mushrooms, and roasted quail with a huckleberry reduction. There is also a tasting menu for those who would rather sample a little of everything!
  • Odeum offers artisanal Mediterranean cuisine in a setting that includes art displays, live music, and an open kitchen so diners can watch the master chefs at work.

Enjoy The Great Outdoors In Morgan Hill

With so many tech companies and fine restaurants, you would be forgiven for thinking Morgan Hill is not a very outdoorsy place. However, there is plenty to do if you want to get back to nature:

  • Visit Coyote Valley Sporting Clay to get some fresh air – and practice your aim. This clay shooting range is suitable for beginners and features twenty automated shooting ranges. Confident shooters can head straight for the field, while those new to clay shooting might want to partake in one of Coyote Valley's classes.
  • Take a trip out to Sycamore Creek Vineyards. This is a few hours outside of Morgan Hill, but well worth a visit. The outdoor tasting area is surrounded by olive groves and rolling landscapes, making it a perfect place to relax outdoors. Of course, you will also have the chance to sample some of their best wines. As well as explaining more about the winemaking process, the expert guides will suggest the best wines for you based on your palate.
  • Get close to nature at Henry W. Coe State Park, the second-largest state park in California. Despite its official name, residents call it the Orestimba Wilderness, and it is easy to see why. Within the 87,000 acre park, you can spot mountain lions, rattlesnakes, hawks, coyotes, and lizards. There are also plenty of facilities, including a bookstore, a campground, and a visitor center with exhibits on old ranch life.
  • Enjoy the picturesque Uvas Canyon County Park. From Swanson Creek's beauty to pretty waterfalls and leafy green paths, this is the place to relax and enjoy some quiet time. The park has many varieties of trees, including juniper, sycamore, alder, and maple.

  • We take care of deodorization to leave the home fresh.
