Explore San Jose, CA.

Feel those NorCal vibes the moment you step off the plane in San Jose—where the entrepreneurial spirit of Silicon Valley meets the cultural and historical charm of California’s oldest city. Why spend time on your favorite social apps when you can go check out the company’s main campus? Go explore the headquarters of dot-com leaders and technological innovators. Getting around San Jose is a breeze; hop on the extensive light rail system—known as the Valley Transportation Authority (VTA)—or take the Caltrain if you’re looking to connect to other Peninsula cities.

Experience the vibrancy of downtown San Jose, packed with local artisan shops and street performers. The SoFA Market is a must see, loaded with delicious eateries and crafty merchandise. Close by you’ll also find the Museum of Quilts and Textiles, which is the first of its kind in the U.S. Take a stroll down Santana Row and partake in the Mediterranean-style shopping and entertainment district, with over 150 shops and restaurants. Soak up the sun at one of the garden wine bars on the row, or if you’re a shopper spoil yourself with your favorite brands.

If you’re looking for more of a quiet getaway, explore the serenity of the 50-acre Lake Cunningham. Watch the sunrise from the lake or take advantage of various water sports such as boating and sailing. In the East Foothills of San Jose, walk through the unpaved trails of Montgomery Hill Park.

No matter what you’re looking to do on your next trip, San Jose has it all. Hop on the next Southwest flight and go explore!
