  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    San Jose is located about an hour southeast of San Francisco, and about 5-6 hours north of Los Angeles. It is at the southern mouth of the San Francisco Bay. Unless you take the coastal route, you will definitely pass through San Jose going between LA and SF along 101 en route to the 5.

    With a population of more than 1 million, a brand new modern city hall, an international airport, and location in the Silicon Valley, San Jose is still probably not a major tourist destination, but a business destination. If you are a tourist, the Winchester Mystery Mansion in located here. You may also enjoy the Tech Museum and the new City Hall in downtown San Jose. If you're in the shopping mood and some good food head to Santana Row.

    San Jose is the host of the annual Grand Prix car race for 2 years now, and it transforms downtown San Jose into a race track for 3 days at the end of July.

    For those that survived the dot com bubble they have found sanctuary on Santana Row, a boulevard of high class eateries, cafes, and designer shopping. It's also a great place for nightlife. The restaurants/bars transform into a nightclub.

    Its major newspaper Mercury News has a lot of stories and information on high-tech companies.
