    Downtown San Jose doesn't have the big city appeal of San Francisco and the weekend crowds can be somewhat strange, but there are some pretty nice gems to be found in downtown San Jose. San Pedro Square, especially with that new market area, is always a fun place to hang around. There are some great dive bars in the area and it's all pretty easily accessible via VTA. There's also some comfort in knowing you're 40% likely to end your night at one of the La Vics locations.

    I'm a 25 year San Jose resident. San Jose downtown is not the greatest place in the world but it's passable. With a few great festivals a year (Jazz, Christmas in the Park), and a few nice venues (St Pedro Square, 1st Street) San Jose makes for a city, but there's not much beyond that. Head to San Francisco instead for the true city experience.

    Downtown San Jose is pure Awesome. I grew up in the San Jose area, and only started living in downtown out of college for a little while. It was great. What does downtown offer? Music in the Park during the summer. Christmas in the Park in the winter. Cinequest film festival (which I volunteered as a speaker for), downtown dining, pubs, jazz, comedy clubs. Also, this is Sharks Territory; a great vibe for any NHL or Sharks fan. There is the SJSU campus, Santa Clara University campus not far away, Paseo San Antonio with Philz Coffee, The Alemeda, Japantown, and plenty of other awesome. All of downtown is a great place to ride around with you bicycle, not to mention to possibly participate in the San Jose bike party. Very good times.
