As the cultural and technological capital of California’s booming Silicon Valley, San Jose is home to more than a million people and almost as many exciting things to do, see, and experience in the Santa Clara Valley. Do you know the way to make the most of your time here? 100 Things to Do in San Jose Before You Die guides you through the weird, wild, and wonderful sights, now with even more insider tips and itineraries in the second edition.
Take to the streets on bikes, blades, boards, or foot during Viva Calle SJ, when six miles of city streets are closed to cars for the ultimate “open road” party. Experience Purr Yoga, Mewsic, Cat Bingo, or a feline-themed escape room, all with free-roaming adoptable cats at The Dancing Cat cat café. Explore impossibly pastoral hills covered in thousands of iris flowers at Nola’s Iris Garden or get in touch with your inner artist at Drink and Draw nights at Art Boutiki. San Jose is even home to a Star Wars–themed bar and grill.
Local arts reviewer and author Susannah Greenwood will help you fully embrace your inner geek as you pioneer your own Josean form of Manifest Destiny. Whether you’re a first-time visitor, a regular traveler to the area, or a local looking for adventure, new quests await you in this indispensable guide that will help you find the way to San Jose you never knew existed.
