About North San Jose
Whistle stops along the San Francisco-San Jose Caltrain line have grown into splinter cities, thanks to Silicon Valley megaliths like Apple, Google, Yahoo, Intel, and Mozilla. The historic adobe left over from Mountain View's early days as a 19th century stagecoach stop has been overshadowed by Googleplex, a 47,000 square-meter behemoth with parks, fountains, and a life-size bronze T Rex. Mountain View keeps new technologies in perspective at the Computer History Museum and hosts the Peninsula's biggest music events at Shoreline Ampitheatre. Once known for its orchards, Sunnyvale is better known among geeks for such early technology launches as Pong video game, Yahoo, and Palm. Santa Clara started as a Spanish mission in 1777, but now it's on a mission to train future tech moguls at Santa Clara University, entertain families at Great America amusement park, and serve as a new home for San Francisco's defecting football team, the 49ers. South of Santa Clara is the eco-minded Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport, the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, and the allegedly haunted 160-room Winchester Mystery House.
