San Jose Travel Guide

San Jose is the great city in the Bay Area well-known as "The Capital of Silicon Valley", 3rd largest city in California, and the 10th largest city in the U.S. San Jose is home to several high tech mega-headquarters like Cisco, Ebay, Adobe and Others.

There are many numerous neighbourhoods in San Jose's large geographic area. San Jose as most Bay Area cities is a costly place to live. Some of the hip areas to live these days are the downtown area, the vintage charm neighbourhoods of Willow Glen and Rose Garden, the woodsy area with the best schools known as Almaden Valley, the new mcMansion subdivision area called Silver Creek, and the new hip live/shop area named Santana Row.

You can arrive to San Jose by plane, train or car. San Jose is home to one of the Bay Area's three international airports, San Jose International (SJC). The other two are Oakland (OAK) and San Francisco (SFO).

San Jose's Train has three commuter rail lines: Caltrain, which works up the Peninsula to San Francisco, Amtrak California's Capitol Corridor line which works through the East Bay and then inland to Sacramento and Altamont Commuter Express, which works from Stockton, Livermore, and Pleasanton into San Jose and the Santa Clara Valley in the morning and then returns in the late afternoon and evening.

Cars of San Jose are connected to San Francisco by the US-101 and Interstate 280 highways. From Los Angeles, take I-5 North to CA-152 West to US-101 North. From the East Bay, use either I-880 or I-680 South.
