INSIDER’S » TIP
Mingle with Silicon Valley’s creative types at the FIRST FRIDAYS ART WALK each month (except January and July), when downtown San Jose museums are free and galleries stay open late for an art crawl along South First Street. Live music and special performances take place at various venues downtown, including in SAN PEDRO SQUARE, a bustling historic food hall with music on stage Thursdays through Sundays. Enjoy sampling dishes from the diverse eateries and take a seat outdoors around 18th-century PERALTA ADOBE,
San Jose’s oldest building.
