Gilroy is the 'garlic capital of the world'

The town of Gilroy, California, is home to Christopher Ranch, the largest garlic grower and processor in the US. Their annual harvest regularly exceeds 100 million pounds, which is grown all across the state, but all of which comes to Gilroy for processing.

The city, home to about 60,000 residents, has become known as the "Garlic Capital of the World", but the town isn't just a center of agriculture highlighted by the aromatic bulb. With a theme park, plenty of outdoor activities, wineries and businesses, Gilroy is a thriving, family-friendly town located within driving distance of the entire Bay Area.
