FYI for BlogHer attendees who think downtown san jose would be a fun place to visit
It is a great place to visit, but not the weekend of BlogHer
. See, BlogHer is being held on the same weekend as the Grand Prix of San Jose
, as in Champ Cars zooming all over the streets and traffic re-routed and general mayhem will probably ensue.
This is not to say that cool things like The Tech
or the San Jose Museum of Art
or the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum
won't be open—they will! But I would venture to guess that downtown is going to be an absolute nightmare.
As such, if you're sticking around for an extra day or coming in a day early or whatever, remember that the 902 Light Rail line
will take you to downtown Mountain View, where you can either partake of restaurants there or hop Caltrain
into Palo Alto or continue on to San Francisco. Unfortunately, the Light Rail south from San Jose to Campbell and Los Gatos isn't complete, otherwise I'd recommend going to those downtown areas as well. No museums, but plenty of great restaurants! technorati tag: blogher
