Join the Cadillac V-Club for our 1st Quarter Meet 'N Greet cruise event on Saturday, February 27 at 10:00AM PST ending the drive at Bronco Billy's Pizza Palace in Niles for lunch at approximately 11:30AM. RSVP registration is mandatory.
Enjoy the scenic and lively curves of Calaveras Rd to finish off in the unique little downtown of Niles. Note this route goes through some of the recently devastated areas from the California wildfires so it should be an unusual sight.
Niles is a special hidden gem of Fremont, CA. Compared to high tech Silicon Valley, it can feel like you went back in time visiting this little main street. It has many antique shops, a couple other unique stores, a top notch hip coffee bar, and the popular and delicious Bronco Billy's Pizza. We will be following social distancing guidelines and enjoying our pizzas at our cars in the large parking lot across the street, so be sure to bring your chairs. Afterward there will be the usual car talk or feel free to roam the shops nearby.
Meet at Starbucks at 1155 N Capitol Avenue at 10:00AM in San Jose to proceed on a scenic cruise via Felter and Calaveras Blvd. Drive time approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
37651 Niles Blvd, #2947

Niles was established in the 1850s and was a junction point of the Southern Pacific Railroad lines from Oakland to San Jose and southern coastal points. Vallejo’s Mill was the first flourishing flour mill constructed and completed in this country. It was run by water conducted in a long flume from Alameda Creek. Niles at one time was noted for the location of the California Nursery, the largest nursery in California, with the largest rose plantation in the state.
In 1912, Essanay Studios was at the height of its movie making fame. The studio, owned by Gilbert M. “Broncho Billy” Anderson and his partner George Spoor, made famous movies of the time starring Charlie Chaplin, Wallace Beery, and Ben Turpin. Many cowboy adventures were filmed through Niles Canyon and along the main streets of Niles. The towns of Niles, Mission San Jose, Centerville, Irvington, and Warm Springs were incorporated into the City of Fremont in 1956.
Today Fremont’s Niles District is famous for its historic shopping district, Wildflower Festival, Niles Essanay Silent Film Festival and Museum, its annual Antique Fair, and the Niles Canyon Railway. Watch Niles as the community continues to show off a captivating historic character, a family atmosphere, and a friendly shopping experience.
