Trip Planner USA  /  California  /  San Jose

Capital of Silicon Valley

The metropolitan center of Silicon Valley, San Jose considers itself a global city. From the dancing fountains of Plaza de César Chávez to the domed city hall, the town is as modern as the digital technologies that drive its economy. The urban area isn't blocked by skyscrapers, so the sky’s the limit when viewing stars from the observatory. The downtown area is known for its luxury shopping and dining among pastel stucco buildings and palms. Those who visit the city for pleasure often take advantage of the many resorts with swimming pools and spa services. Explore the family-friendly attractions of San Jose and add them to your vacation plans using our United States visit planner.
