San Jose is a vibrant city in the heart of Silicon Valley, home to a range of unique museums, beautiful parks and a great nightlife scene.If you are visiting the city between May and November, make sure to visit the Downtown Farmers Market, where you can buy some of the freshest produce available, including fruit, vegetables and other baked treats. There are a variety of local wines to sample as you stroll through the stalls, which is always a plus! Downtown is also home to a range of events, especially in summer, as well as bustling bars, cocktail lounges, and Broadway shows. So, make sure to check online to see what is happening during your visit.
Even if museums aren’t normally your thing, you can’t go to the area known as the forefront of technology without going to the Tech Museum of Innovation. Get some hands-on experience with some of the latest technology in Silicon Valley, design a robot or check out some wearable technology at Body Metrics that are not available to the public. Afterwards, why not take a minute to relax in the Municipal Rose Garden before heading to the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum and checking out the largest collection of Ancient Egyptian artifacts on the West Coast?
