San Jose is one of the oldest cities in California and is known as “The Capital Of Silicon Valley.” Before it became a tech centre, the city was a farming community for nearly two hundred years.
The city has a diverse population of Whites, Mexican Americans, Asians, Indians, Japanese and others. Though known as a big tech hub, there is a lot of interesting things to enjoy near the city. If you are planning to visit SJ, here are a few cool places you can stay to make the holiday memorable.
