Wanna take a chance on a parking ticket or even worse–tow away–to save time looking for a parking spot at San Jose’s most popular intersection? Many of us have done it, and then right before leaving, run into the Safeway to buy pack of gum to make it legit. It’s the parking lot at Safeway–Winchester Blvd. & Stevens Creek Blvd.–next to Westfield Valley Fair and across the street from Santana Row.
People park at this lot to make a quick run into Valley Fair or Santana Row, risking a parking ticket or tow every time!
Here’s the view driving at San Jose’s most popular spot: north on Stevens Creek Blvd. right before Winchester Blvd., between Valley Fair mall and Santana Row:
With parking tickets that run close to $100, and the cost of getting your car back from a tow many times that–even into the thousands of dollars–Valley Fair valet parking looks cheap at $12 per car, with a $4 discount off that if you dine at Cheesecake Factory 🙂
