      If you don't already know that Gilroy is dubbed the Garlic Capital of the World, your nose might tell you as you approach town. So will your eyes, as you see not only plenty of garlic fields, but plenty of shops selling garlic and other produce, and garlic-related items such as garlic flavored chocoalte and garlic flavored ice cream. The city also holds a garlic festival every year that has drawn worldwide attention.

      If you go:
      The Garlic Festival is held in late July each year. Some of the most interesting and longest established garlic shops are located on Highway 101 on the outskirts of town.
