Visit San Jose, CA.

Nestled in the San Francisco Bay Area, San Jose offers a beautiful mix of culture, architecture, and technology. Coined the Capital of Silicon Valley, you won’t miss a beat with museums and performances showcasing some of San Jose’s best. During your stay, immerse yourself in local history and culture through Chicano/a performing arts, visit museums to learn about the latest technological trends, and spend time outdoors basking in the California sun.

As the first city founded in the Californias, San Jose has plenty of important history to explore. Learn about the city’s important role in the Gold Rush, visit the Mexican Heritage Plaza for music and performing arts dedicated to the Chicano/a experience in San Jose, and see the Japanese Friendship Garden (JFG). The JFG serves as a symbol of the Sister City bond between Okayama, Japan, and San Jose, making it a unique historical artifact. This garden serves as a peaceful retreat for visitors and residents alike to find respite in this bustling city. For walking history tours, hang around the downtown area and catch an afternoon walk with university students and local resident experts in spooky tales, historic happenings, and surprising San Jose.

If you’re visiting the Silicon Valley area for the first time, you’ll want to visit The Tech Interactive, a family-friendly science and technology center boasting hands-on activities related to STEM education. Then pay a visit to The Computer History Museum to learn about the computing revolution and how it has impacted our society and the city around you. Consider a trip to San Pedro Square Market, the perfect place for local eats and shopping during your stay. Catch live music events and get recommendations from locals on where to visit next.
