Visiting San Jose, CA next week

My employer sends me out for a training to San Jose, CA which will take most of the next week. The training is during day (9am to 6pm) and I will have most of the evenings free. If any of you guys live in the area, this could be a good opportunity to meet and have a beer together discussing deals & coupons business. ;-)

I have never been to California before and plan to spend a couple of nights in San Francisco sightseeing. Google headquarters are in my list as well. Just curious to check on the startup that in under 10 years grew from two guys hacking with algorithms into a multi billion corporation.

Any Silicon Valley folks out there? What other places are worth visiting?

    enjoy the trip.
    and BTW if you park @ Google headquarters – be prepared to meet a friendly security guy :)

    There is plenty of things to do in the SF – Bay Area. From tech companies like google, yahoo, and ebay to touristy stuff like alcatraz and the golden gate bridge. I work in downtown SF, let me know when you are out that way.

    Forget San Jose; it’s dead. Goto SF and explore there. I spent a week in San Jose, and 3 weeks in SF. SF definitely had much more to see/do.
