San Jose

Founded as a mission colony and farming community in 1777, San Jose became the first capital of California after it achieved statehood and has today become central to Silicon Valley, housing a large number of technology companies. The city is known for its many displays of public art, including famous figures, decorated sharks (hockey mascot) and even a live AM radio transmission. The San Jose Museum of Art is one of the nation’s most highly-rated art collections, and smaller museums offer unique niches, like the Portuguese Historical Museum, the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum and the Winchester Mystery House. Water parks and municipal gardens are also popular family attractions.
