Commute times from Santa Cruz to San Jose / Santa Clara

by mdames

My boyfriend works in the semiconductor industry and is thinking of moving to Santa Cruz with me soon, but we aren't sure if the commute is realistic (e.g. less than 1 hour). Does anybody know what the commute time between Santa Cruz and San Jose is during work traffic? What about during normal hours? Also, I heard that most of the semiconductor jobs are in Santa Clara. Can anyone tell me how long the commute from Santa Cruz to Santa Clara is during work traffic? During normal hours?

Thank you soooo much for your help!


RE: Commute times from Santa Cruz to San Jose / Santa Clara

by Jokerit_pl

Commute time between Santa Cruz and San Jose can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour during peak commute times. On off-peak times, it's about 30-45 minutes. If you are new to driving Highway 17, bear in mind that the drive will take some getting used to as it's very windy and the grade fairly steep at certain points. Also, CHP likes to hide out within a half mile of and at the Summit looking for speeders, so watch your speed. Most of the semiconductor companies in Santa Clara are located at or near the 101 freeway, so add about another 10-15 minutes at the 880-101 freeway going north. Normal commute hours will cancel that extra 10-15 minutes. By the way, Santa Cruz can be a zoo during warm weekends and the summertime, so you'll have to feel that out to see if you need to leave any earlier.

If the weather is bad, the drive can get a bit hairy and can potentially add anywhere from 30 min to an hour to the drive. Accidents, especially bad ones, will delay the commute even more. My friend who lives just beyond the Summit on the Santa Cruz side once took 2.5 hours to get down to San Jose because of a really bad accident that closed the highway for awhile.

Travel Tips for San Jose

San Jose Tip

by rmiya84778

San Jose Civic Auditorium-I list this place because it has lot's of local history. When I was growing up in San Jose, this is where professional sport events and concerts were held.
The place is too small now. I think accomadations or seating available was between 500 to 1,000?
Pro Wrestling, Roller Derby, collage basketball and concerts used to be held here. Now it is used as a playhouse for shows/theaterlays.

Japanese American Museum of San Jose

by squidly2

This is a wonderful little museum honoring the heritage of those who are Japanese Amercian (which I'm not, but I found it very interesting). It focuses on the internment of Japanese Americans in WW2, including a room set up like a typical family residence at one of the camps.
There is also a section on Japanese Americans who served in the military during WW2, what Japantown San Jose was like before the war, and they are setting up a nice agriculture display in the back, with some cool old tractors/trucks and other farm implements.
We were led though by a knowledgeable, (not at all "preachy") docent whose own parents had lived in an internement camp in Wyoming.
There is a jar for donations in the museum. Open Tuesday through Friday 11 AM - 3 PM
Sunday 11 AM - 2 PM Admission: FREE

Rosicrucian Park and Egyptian Museum

by Ewingjr98

The Rosicrucian Order is a philosophical fraternal organization with its North American headquarters at Rosicrucian Park in San Jose. This park and associated facilities was founded in 1927, and it includes the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, the 5th Planetarium built in the US, the Rosicrucian Peace Garden, Rosicrucian Research Library, Grand Temple, Administration Building, and Fountain Plaza and Gardens.

We stopped by for about thirty minutes one afternoon and just wandered through the park. We enjoyed the obelisk, the sphinxes, and the pharaohs, and we were intrigued by the tomb of one of the founders and the statue of one of the Roman Caesars near the planetarium. All in all it was intriguing but unusual.

by ajfortino about Tony Di Maggio Pizza

It's one of those restaurants that everyone seems to know about, but you've never seen an advertisement. It's a family restaurant and you know from the time you walk in the door. You always get a friendly welcome whether it's one of the three brothers or mom and dad working and sometimes it can be all of the above. One warning is that this is not a restaurant for vegetarians. There is literally nothing to eat that is vegetarian. Even the sauce has meat in it. The stromboli is something you'll rarely find else where, except in New York. It is pizza dough stuffed with all kinds of meat, cheese and sauce with a touch of mustard. Don't knock it until you've tried it. Everyone I've introduced it to has loved it.
