Reviewed March 16, via mobile Alejandro is fantastic! The city has created a network of pedestrian boulevards. These are amazing and still expanding giving traffic free zones to enjoy. The quiet neighborhoods are unique and the residents are friendly.
Less walking and more time taking fotos enjoying photogenic locations. If you have questions about working with your phone. I will try to be helpful. I can recommend apps also that will make your fotos come alive. No time clock, but usually a couple hours.
And of course using an actual camera is OK as well. Walking through some pretty and cruisy parks and taking time to smell the Roses. Maybe relax with a picnic. It is a nice way to meet some friendly locals. We also can stop into a few places for a visit and a cocktail. Some of the venues are in less than picture perfect locations.
You can feel safe you have not wandered off into a place you are not sure about. If you choose to return late in the night you will have the advantage of knowing just where you are. The gay pride parade is big event and brings out the crowds. The day everyone struts their stuff.

In general I feel San Jose is an open minded place. I see young gay couples holding hands without raising an eyebrow. The transvestites working the parks at night are very friendly.
The locals take them in stride.
