Many people are sent to San Jose on assignment by their employers and on looking around on Google decide that a great place to live would be Morgan Hill. It is nowhere near as populous as San Jose, with less than 50,000 inhabitants, and is just a 22 mile commute, so is nice and easy in the morning. It is also noted for its’ wining and dining, with Michelin starred chefs, wineries, luxury hospitality, and also nature parks. It is quite one of the nicest cities in which to live in California.
The city is also noted for being the home of one of a very few sources of semi-precious stones known as the Morgan Hill Poppy Jasper, a local form of orbicular jasper. The local brewery, El Toro Brewing Company, has a display of these where they are inlaid on a large bar top at their brewpub in downtown Morgan Hill, and also at their brewery. There is also a local Poppy Jasper Film Festival named after the stone.
There is a local hill named El Toro which, according to legend, was named by author Bret Harte who climbed it in the early 1900’s and found two bulls fighting. They chased him back down again!
