WWDC attendees: welcome to the Heart of Silicon Valley!

We are excited to see that WWDC has returned to the place where it all began: San Jose.

Don't be fooled by our low-key rep. ... we are known as the Heart of Silicon Valley for a reason.

While you're here, disconnect from your devices and reconnect with nature: visit the Alviso Marina or go for a hike in the Almaden Quick Silver County Park, or take a drive up to the summit and take a look at the stars at the Lick Observatory.

Hit the local community hubs like Japantown - one of only two in the US - or visit downtown Willow Glen or enjoy a cold brew at Mission Creek Brewing Company, Whole Foods‚Äô first in-store microbrewery and taproom in California.

But if you rather stay downtown, don't worry. We've got you covered. Sal Pizzaro of The Mercury News put together this great list of happenings this week.
