About San Jose

San Jose is the unofficial capital of the unofficial region known as Silicon Valley. And, in answer to Dionne Warwick’s 1968 question: ‘Do you know the way to San Jose?’, eBay, Cisco Systems and Adobe definitely do - this is where they have their headquarters, among other top techs..

As you might guess this is a relatively affluent city with some lovely architecture, numerous great bars, restaurant and boutiques, and a very rich cultural calendar. They also get a lot of sunny weather, have a great farmer’s market, several extremely good libraries, some impressive galleries and several good museums. It’s just kind of in the shadow of San Francisco.
