2017 Travel Guide to California - - SAN JOSE & SILICON VALLEY -

Start­ing in PALO ALTO, take in vi­brant Univer­sity Av­enue and drive the leafy lanes of the

STAN­FORD CAM­PUS, stop­ping to see the mo­saics in Me­mo­rial Church and the

MAIN QUAD. Head west on Sand Hill Road to High­way 280 south to re­vi­tal­ized down­town

SAN JOSE for a visit to the strik­ing Tech Mu­seum of In­no­va­tion. Take High­way 17 west to LOS GATOS, stop­ping to en­joy the vil­lage-like down­town and its shady plaza, then head south on High­way 9 to the equally charm­ing ham­let of SARATOGA, nes­tled at the foot of the Santa Cruz Moun­tains. Con­tinue on High­way 9 up into the moun­tains to Sky­line Boule­vard (High­way 35), the crest of the range. Here you’ll find un­crowded winer­ies, pris­tine forests and many open space pre­serves and parks, in­clud­ing CAS­TLE ROCK STATE PARK, the most spec­tac­u­lar. Fol­low Sky­line Boule­vard south and re­join High­way 17 east, which leads back to San Jose and the heart of Sil­i­con Val­ley.
