Friday was "Inside Rainy Day" so on to downtown San Jose. All the time I worked in Silicon Valley in the early to mid 80's I don't think I've ever went to downtown San Jose - I guess my business or curiosity never took me there. After all, when I was done with a day of work, I had the long commute back home in the the Richmond District of San Francisco - driving any more wasn't usually a desire.

Anyways we parked in downtown San Jose at the corner of W. San Carlos St. and S. Market St. and walked through Plaza de Cesar Chavez Street/View/Map where they were already setting up "Christmas In The Park" decorations and displays.

On into the Tech Museum of Innovation. Street/View/Map Website Tickets were $8 each ($2 off for AAA membership!) and included an IMAX movie. We went in for about 2-1/2 hours then went outside for a quick tour around downtown then back for the IMAX movie at 4pm. It was Space - the Shuttle. IMAX movies always impress - steep angled seating with circler overhead dome screen - you have to move your head around to see everything! Dee Dee said "It was like you were right in the movie, the way it wrapped around you. It made you kick back, relax and enjoy!"

Back "home" at the Sundowner Inn Street/View/Map Website in Sunnyvale.
