I can either pick you up from a San Jose location or we can meet at the San Jose Diridon train station to begin our urban excursion into the South Bay. We will then make our way over to San Jose State University, where we will check out the campus and then grab a snack and/or coffee drink right in downtown San Jose. Afterwards, we’ll make our way over to the Computer History Museum and take in all that it has to offer. After the museum, we will visit Stanford University and the surrounding Downtown Palo Alto area because this is where people hang out and get some culture in their lives. We will finish the day back in San Jose.
I’ve lived and grown up in Silicon Valley since I was 8 years old, experiencing the whole tech boom and having “hung out and played” in this area for pretty much my entire life. I know this area like the back of my hand and can show you the way to San Jose during the best hours. Or, San Francisco, if you want. I also live and work as an Asst. Program Director right smack in the middle of San Jose, so I can give you a truly “local” experience and show you the real Bay Area. The one where every techie, entrepreneur, and movie star enjoys on a day to day basis.
Entry to the Computer History Museum
Transportation to all destinations will be provided in a BMW M3 convertible sports car. Just sit back and enjoy the ride!
Downtown San Jose: the capital of Silicon Valley. It’s the hub for the Bay Area where the majority of the people work. Computer History Musuem: a plethora of information about Silicon Valley. From the beginnings of the tech industry, to what’s going on now. This place showcases what Silicon Valley is. Stanford University and Palo Alto: this is where people study and live. It’s part of one of the most expensive zip codes in the United States.
Sunglasses and a sweater are recommended. Having a hat would be a convenience. No flash photography at CHM. No outside food/drinks or backpacks at CHM. Cafe and gift shop at CHM. This is a “smoke-friendly” excursion.
