City of San Jose, Silicon Valley Ca

History: Founded on November 29, 1777 as Pueblo de San Jose, California’s first civilian settlement and California’s first capital.

San Jose is the 10th largest city in the U.S., attracting professionals in the high tech industries. While one of the most compelling reasons to visit San Jose comes in the form of work-related business or attendance at a convention, San Jose provides a great vacation, as well.

Located 50 miles east of the Pacific Ocean and 50 miles south of San Francisco in Santa Clara County, California’s third largest city enjoys a beautiful Silicon Valley landscape of rolling hills and friendly climate. Mild year-round temperatures and winter rains provide the perfect conditions for growing wine grapes. Surrounded by gently-rolling hills that include some of California’s oldest wineries, wine tasting and wine tours provide fun excursions to the nearby countryside.

In just a day or weekend you can get moving and never stop as you go from museum to museum, visit the downtown highlights, and shop at places such as Santana Row. Designed in the vein of Las Ramblas in Barcelona, the mixed residential commercial spaces feature street level shopping & dining along plazas that include some outdoor patio, a public courtyard where concerts and events are held on a greenbelt, and condominiums in second and third floor residences. For those living in San Jose, they appreciate the fact that it has ranked consistently between 1 and 10 in the top 10 safe cities in the U.S.

For vacations, there are some fun things to see and do, and the beauty of San Jose is that you can fly into the city’s San Jose Silicon Valley Airport, hop aboard the public transportation, and be downtown walking to everything.

First Church of Christ Scientist, San Jose Ca

First Church of Christ Scientist. 43 East Saint James Street, Downtown San Jose Ca

Yep, it still stands there, now you know what it was.

Designed by San Francisco architect Willis Polk in 1904. The structure was built in the shape of a Greek cross, and topped by a 45-foot high dome. In 1946, the congregation moved to a new church on The Alameda.

Some uses of the church since that time have included movie theater, day care center and rehearsal hall for the San Jose Children’s Musical Theater. It has stood abandoned for years. A bone in the boneyard.
