There are so many amazing things to do right here in South Bay. The food here is remarkable and your choices are endless. The sushi is some of the best in the West.

Sutro Baths
Santana Row

First, I would make my way to Ridge Vineyards to enjoy the tasting menu. The team at Ridge Vineyards is so friendly, and you get a great view of the bay. The wines are amazing; try the chardonnay!

I would head up to Santana Row and along the way would take some pictures of the overcast weather with rays of sun shining through the fog up in the hills. I would  have lunch at Pluto’s (the Mac & Cheese is amazing) and then take a drive through the city to photograph a colorful sunset at Sutro Baths.

Once I got back into town I would hit up San Pedro Square for some music and drinks.

My last stop on the way home would be La Vic’s for some delicious late-night food.

The Juniper Hotel Cupertino, Curio Collection by Hilton

Welcome to Juniper Hotel Cupertino, Curio Collection by Hilton - a modern boutique hotel in Silicon Valley. The San Jose airport, McEnery Convention Center, several tech giants, Levi’s Stadium and wineries are all minutes away. Find attentive service at our Mediterranean-inspired hotel along with all the high-tech amenities you expect in a region known for innovation.


My first impression was how stylish and trendy it is. Tucked away behind the main street so you don’t feel the hustle and bustle, it makes for the perfect place to relax.

The decor and art in the lobby were truly unique to the area and helped illustrate the overall essence of the region. And the entry was grand, and inviting, yet bold. The whole vibe made me want to enjoy my night out, in – particularly with their daily complimentary wine reception from 5 to 6 p.m.
