We have spent the last two blog postings exploring the Town Square and Main Street areas of Frontier Village. Now at the end of main street opened up a vista of the lake off to your left side.  On your right you still had some exciting things ahead. I remember in this area there was an area where you could go panning for GOLD.  It was always fun to do because your hand would get wet and on a hot summer day that was always fun to play in the water. To the right was where the fishing pond was located.  It where you could drop in a fishing line and catch a rainbow trout for you dinner.   I never liked doing that because I as a small kid would only like to catch tuna fish sandwiches or school lunch room fish sticks. The waterfall that trickled down into the fishing pond was built on the sid...

In my last blog on this subject we had just entered San Jose's Frontier Village and were still in front of the train station. Just over the train tracks and to your right was a path that went behind some of the buildings that were on the Main Street.  This path lead to two of the most fun rides at Frontier Village, The Stampede and Tarantula!  The Stampede was a flat spinning ride where the riders would board a long bench like seat that was mounted with two other benches like spokes on a wheel.  That wheel would be connected to other wheels connected to a central hub and the entire contraption would spin. The Tarantula came later and was also a spinning flat ride.  This time the riders rode in bucket like contraptions that closed up around your feet and locked you in.  The Tarantula wou...

 Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area during the 1960s I have very fond memories of San Jose's Frontier Village. I remember the long journey from San Leandro where we lived all the way down to South San Jose.  We would take what was then Highway 17 (The Nimitz) down to San Jose and then onto Interstate 101.  After the long drive through San Jose (it seemed so huge back then) to the Ford Road exit near the IBM plant.  After exiting Ford Road there was a right turn on the the road called Monterey Road taking us back North into San Jose for about a mile.  This section of Monterey Road had the Southern Pacific train track along the left side. As you neared Branham Lane you began to see the tall eucalyptus trees of Frontier Village.  At Branham Lane you take the left turn and over the tr...

The Median List price for the Almaden Valley district of San Jose (zip code 95120) has been declining overall. Does this mean that homes are declining in value? Or does it mean that less expensive homes are being offered for sale? Information from sold data indicates that by and large, homes are holding their value in Almaden right now. The declines in asking prices may indicate that sellers simply want prices to be rising more than they actually are, rather than the idea that values are falling. Read more...

I used to work across 237 from the location where the new Tesla Motors headquarters and assembly plant will be located.  The new plant will be located at 237 and Zanker Road in San Jose. I used to work at Redback Networks located on 350 Holger Road.  My office window used to look out over the lot where this plant will be located. I very much like the idea of the Tesla Roadster.  I surely wouldn't mind having one of these fast sporty and great looking electric vehicles.   I am not a huge fan of the popular Toyota Prius.   I am glad to see something on the horizon that promises to be the muscle car of the "green" movement. There will be about a thousand new employees hired at the new automobile assembly plant.  These new employees may be needing to find new homes. Here's the link for anyo...

Willow Glen is an extremely popular area in San Jose which offers convenice, charm, and a strong sense of community. It is adjacent to downtown San Jose, and also borders the Cambrian Park area and the city of Campbell in Silicon Valley. The "downtown area" mostly consists of the many stores, shops and restaurants along tree-lined Lincoln Avenue. Seen here is a snippet of that road, with the much loved and very famous children's bookstore, Hicklebee's. Because this San Jose district is older, it's full of interesting architecture and real estate here is highly prized. Neighborhoods tend to be diverse looking and well kept with a lot of pride by the owners in keeping their homes up nicely. Many streets feature Craftsman or Spanish style homes. Others may have Victorians. Newer regions wi...

Cambrian Park is an area of San Jose that borders Los Gatos, Almaden Valley, Willow Glen, and Campbell. It is considered a safe area with good schools and is fairly affordable. Because of its proximity to Los Gatos and Willow Glen, and a vibrant community with lots of activities, a couple of Farmer's Markets and much more, it's a highly desired place to live. Cambrian is also a microcosm of Silicon Valley; often it represents what's happening countywide as close to the exact middle in pricing between the most upscale areas on the one hand and the most affordable areas on the other. Today I took a look at the single family home market in Cambrian Park, first assessing it from the solds data and second by using the active listings - and within the actives, viewing the data by zip code to ...
