The capital of Silicon Valley

San Jose is a diverse, multicultural city with a rich history. There are plenty of cultural events at theaters, art galleries, and museums, and it’s easy to top it all off with so many fine restaurants. Besides fantastic amusement parks and a variety of concert and comedy venues, nightlife in San Jose spells SOFA (South of First Area). Voted consistently as one of the US’s sunniest and safest cities, there’s good reason travelers comment on how friendly San Jose locals are.
