Hear about journey to the Silicon Valley (Santa Clara Valley) of California and San Jose because the Beginner Traveler talks about his hometown of 38 years.
The Beginner Traveler podcast has been in manufacturing for 17 years and I’ve by no means finished a present on San Jose and the Silicon Valley, regardless that I’ve recognized it was an important place to dwell for a while. Many individuals, particularly followers of excessive tech or those that work in excessive tech already are touring to Silicon Valley. Listed here are a few of my favourite issues to do in and close to Santa Clara Valley / The Valley of Hearts Delight / Silicon Valley.
We begin in downtown San Jose which has some dwell theatre choices, and two of the most effective museums within the space: the Tech Interactive Museum and the Kids’s Discovery Museum. Different museums of be aware within the space are the Rosicrucian Museum of Egyptology and the Pc Historical past Museum.
We will’t discuss visiting San Jose with out no less than mentioning the quirky and spooky Winchester Thriller Home. This home is what you get when you have got a whole lot of superstitions and some huge cash. It has stairways that go nowhere and a sprawling flooring plan because the proprietor was instructed that she wouldn’t die so long as there was the sound of hammers in her home. They lied. She died.
For nightlife, I like to recommend Santana Row which has an important indoor/outside bar and restaurant scene. Additionally, the smaller downtowns of Sunnyvale, Saratoga, Los Gatos, and Mountain View have good restaurant scenes.
This space is thought for its selection in the case of meals. It has massive Hispanic, Chinese language, Japanese, Indian, and Vietnamese populations. You may keep for per week and eat a special delicacies for each meal. There may be additionally a rising brewery scene and quite a few wineries shut by.
The valley is surrounded by mountains and the San Francisco Bay and there are nice hikes in each course. I like to recommend hikes by the bay at Shoreline Park and Alviso Marina County Park. I additionally suggest some hikes with views like Fremont Older, Sierra Vista, and Windy Hill Open House Preserves.
You may absorb a soccer recreation with the 49ers in Santa Clara or a hockey recreation with the Sharks in San Jose, however I additionally suggest a minor league baseball recreation on the San Jose Giants for reasonably priced household enjoyable. When you are down by the Large’s stadium you may take the children to Glad Hole theme park and zoo or the Japanese Friendship Backyard.
Take a tech tour to go to a number of the websites or firms that make this space one of many world-recognized facilities of excessive tech.
I then lay out a day journey to Santa Cruz to see massive redwood timber, seashores, or the Santa Cruz Boardwalk or to Livermore to do some extra wine tasting.
With 300 sunny days a 12 months, there may be seldom a foul time to go to Silicon Valley.
