San JoseSan Jose is the largest city in Northern California, and a major city in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is also the unofficial "Capital of Silicon Valley" and has become the center of booming local technology.

Its size and name aren't the only attractions which have drawn residents over the last three decades, for within the city there are numerous areas of interest that will surely entertain even the most active resident of assisted living in San Jose.

With almost year-round sunshine, the climate is perfect for touring the many parks and museums that have been inspired by the diverse culture in San Jose. The annual San Jose International Auto Show, not to mention the many cultural feasts and festivals, will certainly make San Jose an ideal choice for any senior.

Seniors who choose assisted living in San Jose will especially enjoy shopping at the famous San Jose Flea Market on Fridays from early May until December at the Downtown Farmers Market in San Pedro Square. For family outings or picnics, residents may visit Emma Prusch Farm Park, San José Municipal Rose Garden and Kelley Park. San Jose is also the home of Winchester Mystery House and Lick Observatory.

San Jose Activities
