Saratoga is a private community that is probably one of the best-kept secrets of the Santa Cruz Mountains in California. It retains a small-town feel and yet, has the offerings of a big city. Moving to Saratoga means you are ready to start a family and ready to be part of a close and tight-knit community. Residents enjoy a very high standard of living, and visitors can take a sneak peek into what it is like to live here.

Relax and Take It Easy

It is a place where you can relax and take a break from the hustle and bustle of working in Silicon Valley. There are plenty of options for relaxation, as Saratoga has great outdoors and great food, great wine, and great people. For a hike that treats you to breathtaking views of Silicon Valley, there’s Hunter’s Point. Beginner hikers may want to start with Sanborn park where you can also appreciate the many redwood trees in the area. Not in the mood for a hike and just want a leisurely walk? If you just want to clear your mind and appreciate nature, you’ll appreciate Hakone Gardens, an 18-acre traditional Japanese garden that is both beautiful and peaceful.

Go Horseback Riding

One of the best things to do in Saratoga, which you can’t really do wherever you are, is go horseback riding. Young novices can take horseback riding lessons at Garrod Farms, which is a sprawling 120-acre estate with 23 miles of riding trails. A scenic guided tour is also offered to visitors to the ranch.
