More About The City

About San Jose, CA

Located in the heart of the Silicon Valley, San Jose defines the area that surrounds it. The population is greater than that of San Francisco, making this the 10th largest city in the US. Once an agricultural stronghold, San Jose has become a mecca for arts and culture as well as a rapidly growing center for technology. The hands-on Tech Museum of Innovation is a popular illustration of the art of technology. Downtown, art galleries and arts organizations south of First Street keep their doors open late the first Friday of every month. This provides the opportunity for patrons and aficionados to meet the talents who are responsible for the extraordinary works of art. Here, California casual is always in style, but since San Jose is one of the wealthiest areas in California, visitors are also assured of excellent shopping and fine dining. And after picking up a cashmere sweater at Smith Alder, you'll have no problem finding a charming dinner spot at one the area bistros. Still up for more? The diverse nightlife scene has it all dance clubs, ultra-cool lounges, even casual pubs. Health and fitness is an obvious lifestyle choice in this vibrant city, and for a round of concentrated exercise or the chance to "Zen out," many spas, fitness centers and yoga houses welcome drop-ins. Adding to the never-ending list of fun activities are over 15 local and championship golf courses, more than 20 vineyards, 150 parks and gardens, and theme parks.
San Jose, CA Factoid
Mark Twain, the great American novelist and social critic, began his successful career as a lecteur in San Jose in 1866. Why San Jose of all places? He originally planned to give the lectures in San Francisco, but feared that he would embarrass himself in front of the large audiences that tended to gather there.
