Gay San Jose & Silicon Valley


Do you know the way to San Jose? This high-tech capital of Silicon Valley might seem all-business at first, but you'll find a casual and friendly gay scene thriving just below the surface. City planners have focused on making downtown San Jose a comfortable space with restaurants, hotels and green space. While you wouldn't vacation here (San Francisco is one hour to the North), if business brings you to San Jose, stop in and hang with the locals.

Our San Jose guide also covers bars in the "Peninsula" the area between San Jose and San Francisco that is often referred to as "Silicon Valley" and is home to Google, Apple, Microsoft, Yahoo and Stanford University.
