When WestJet flies to this destination:
Also known as the “Capital of Silicon Valley”, San Jose, California, has a huge number of people who live, work and breathe the high-tech lifestyle that comes from working in the high-technology engineering, computer and microprocessor industries. With thousands of manufacturing and dot-com companies headquartered in Silicon Valley, San Jose is a thriving city with one of the highest living standards in the United States.
However, there is so much more to this amazing city than just a corporate atmosphere. Despite having almost a quarter of Fortune 500’s companies located in San Jose and the surrounding area, there is a definite sense of just how humble its residents are with their successes. A laid-back, casual air (not to mention the year-round warm weather) brings residents and visitors alike outdoors and into the many attractions that San Jose has to offer.
With the city’s considerable economic growth a definite cultural shift has taken place; while keeping a sense of the area’s deep-rooted ethnic background, the lifestyle of San Joseans has taken an air of recreation, expansion and cultivation. Stretch your mind and stimulate your soul with visits to the Tech Museum of Innovation, the San Jose Museum of Art, Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana, the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum and Planetarium, San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art − and so many more exciting stops in San Jose.
Summer visitors often prefer to be outside and enjoying the glorious California sunshine. Stroll through centuries-old churches and missions, kick off your shoes and relax in any of the delightfully scenic city parks or dozens of state beaches. Savour the local vintages at one of the many wineries or take an afternoon to enjoy one of the area’s sports teams such as the San Jose Earthquakes Soccer Club of the MLS or San Jose Giants Minor League Baseball team. However, if you are visiting in winter (or perhaps late spring/early summer during a playoff run) don’t miss the chance to hop over the HP Pavilion arena for professional hockey − as this is home to the NHL’s San Jose Sharks.
Families can’t get enough of California’s Great America Theme Park! Complete with thrilling rides for big kids, family rides for most everyone and the easygoing KidZville for the littlest ones. This tremendous park has live shows and entertainment, not to mention the awesome Boomerang Bay Water Park. Don’t forget your swimsuit! Another fun treat is the wonderful but mystifying Winchester Mystery House. The mansion itself is a maze of extravagant rooms, intriguing hallways and baffling staircases surrounded by lovely gardens and fascinating museums chronicling the Winchester Rifle Company.
