San Jose’s best kept secret

Nope, it’s NOT the yellow and purple “Tech Interactive” building (formerly known as the San Jose Tech Museum of Innovation). The secret spot is in the middle of the pic, and until I took it, I never knew about it!

I’m born and raised in San Jose–Castillero Middle School, Leland High School and San Jose State–so I was shocked to find this secret spot just recently: it’s the “Rooftop Pool & Gazebo” at the Fairmont San Jose!

Do you see it?

It’s on the 4th floor!

I took the pic from the Silicon Valley Capital Club on the roof of the Knight Ridder Building.

It’s really cool to be swimming up that high, overlooking Plaza de César Chávez, and be able to take a dip while listening to the concerts they sometimes have there at Cesar Chavez Park. And, they serve food 11am-6pm.

How dare they hide it from us  🙂
