As you depart from the bustling Dulles International Airport (IAD) in Washington, D.C., to fly to San Jose, you should get ready for a change in weather. San Jose is the nation's center of technology innovation and home of Silicon Valley, so many business travelers are drawn here. To get to IAD, you can take the subway, or a bus if you don't want to pay the airport's parking fees. Once you arrive in San Jose, stretch your legs at the Plaza de César Chávez, as you sip a cool beverage and enjoy the view of the city.
To get around in San Jose, you can take the light rail system, or the network of buses if you don't have a rental car. Once you gain your bearings, head over to the Emma Prusch Farm Park to explore the orchards, farmer's market and fruit stands. From there, you can visit the Chinese Cultural Garden, and eat a picnic lunch. Afterward, drive to the Tech Museum of Innovation and enjoy the hands-on exhibits.
Your flight from IAD to Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC) should take about four hours. After retrieving your luggage, plan to spend the rest of the day at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum enjoying historical artifacts and their fascinating history.
