Around Downtown San Jose
Situated at the center of Downtown San Jose are brand new condo options and high rise apartments. However, for those who have a little extra money to spend, a renowned residential area among the locals would be in Naglee Park, which is within walking distance from the heart of the neighborhood. Despite the prestige of this district -- airplane, freeway, and train noise can still be heard throughout the day. Before deciding to live in this area, be sure to evaluate the noise level. Fortunately, these sounds can be avoided when you head towards other parts of Downtown, where you can find a mixture of renovated and classic townhouses, and low rise apartment buildings.
Although there are many chains and popular staples among the locals, Downtown San Jose is best known for its Chinese and Japanese cuisine. Japantown sits at the heart of Downtown, and gives both visitors and locals several casual dining options to choose from. Many people opt for one of the multitude of local, family-owned restaurants throughout the city -- where there are several hidden gems that offer great pizza, sandwiches, and noodles. Head towards Santana Row where you can also find several local mini chains to grab a bite to eat.
Since San Jose is close to booming tech cities such as Silicon Valley and Palo Alto, it is not uncommon to meet bright and innovative entrepreneurs. San Jose State University is also located in the area, so students are often rushing to and from classes or studying at a local park or cafe. Out of town visitors are also beginning to frequent the area more since this area is slowly becoming a trendy hotspot in San Jose.
There are many activities available to locals and visitors alike in the Downtown area. Head towards Second Street and you will find no shortage of improv and live comedy clubs -- where you and your friends can laugh the night away. Also located on Second Street, and around the immediate area, are several trendy lounges and chic clubs for those who want to go out, enjoy a drink, and experience the nightlife.
There are a variety of fun activities available in this neighborhood to suit all. You can check out the latest events and shows available at San Jose Convention Center towards the south of Downtown, or head out for brunch in the center of town.
