Gilroy, CA Real Estate

Gilroy /ˈɡɪlrɔɪ/ is the southernmost city in Santa Clara County, California, United States. The population was 48,821 at the 2010 census. Gilroy is well known for its garlic crop and for the annual Gilroy Garlic Festival, featuring various garlicky foods, including garlic ice cream. Gilroy also produces mushrooms in considerable quantity. Gilroy's nickname is "Garlic Capital of the World," although Gilroy does not lead the world in garlic production. While garlic is grown in Gilroy, its nickname comes from the fact that Gilroy Foods processes more garlic than any other factory in the world; most pickled, minced, and powdered garlic come from Gilroy. Boutique wine production is a large part of Gilroy's western portion, mostly consisting of older family estates around the Mount Madonna County Park mountain bases.

About 8 miles (13 km) northeast of Gilroy, via Gilroy Hot Springs Road, lies the Victorian resort Gilroy Yamato Hot Springs, a California Historical Landmark. Gilroy also is home to the Gilroy Premium Outlets, a large shopping center consisting entirely of factory outlet stores.

Long-time local landmarks include Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park, a specialty theme park, along California State Route 152 just west of town, Mount Madonna County Park, at Hecker Pass, about 12 miles (19 km) west of town off Highway 152, and Henry W. Coe State Park, northeast of town. Another large presence is the Gilroy Foods plant (owned by ConAgra Foods) at the southeast edge of town.37°00′06″N 121°32′27″W / 37.00167°N 121.54083°W / 37.00167; -121.54083

Cattle, garlic, and strawberry farms occupy areas toward Hollister to the southeast and San Martin to the north.

The Disney XD show Zeke & Luther is set in Gilroy.

Wine is the second biggest attraction that Gilroy has to offer other than garlic. Gilroy wineries can be found along the Gilroy Wine Trail.
