Surrounded by natural beauty, rich with unique attractions, San Jose is a bustling modern city with one foot proudly stretching far into the future, while simultaneously honoring the area’s remarkable past. In this town of tech, art, history and athletics, one can just as easily watch migrating wildlife along the rugged Pacific coastline and as they can a concert or sporting event at one of the most high-tech venues in the world. The largest city in the nine-county Bay Area, San Jose is home to an array of architectural landmarks, museums and galleries. That next great shopping find is just as likely to come from a local market as it is a major retail center, and a one-of-a-kind culinary experience waits around nearly every corner. There are more than 200 parks and hundreds of miles of trail that beckon to be explored by bike or on foot, and some of the area’s most icon residents – soaring redwoods and masses of migrating monarch butterflies – are just a short drive from the city.
Whatever your interest, you’ll be rewarded for finding your way to San Jose.
