Located less than an hour from San Francisco in the heart of California’s famed “Silicon Valley”, San Jose is Northern California’s largest city, and one of its most vibrant. Sometimes called the “Gateway to the Bays”, San Jose offers an abundance of visual art, music and theatrical offerings, as well as varied seasonal arts festivals designed to appeal to the city’s upscale residents. Plus the amusements and arts of Santa Cruz are less than 45 minutes away, at least when traffic is light.
