Head to Downtown San Jose Real Estate and Visit the Tech Museum of Innovation

Head to downtown San Jose real estate and go to the Tech.When most people think of San Jose real estate, they think of technology and innovation. One of the ways to experience that is to spend a day at the Tech Museum of Innovation. Now in its 20th year, the Tech has brought the world of innovation to life for individuals, families, and school groups for an entire generation. The museum continues to work on its exhibits to bring engaging and exciting exhibits and programs to the next generation of future scientists.

People of all ages from San Jose homes will find exhibits to catch their attention. Body Worlds Decoded, for example, is a fascinating exhibit with the models of the human body designed by Gunther von Hagens’ Institute for Plastination. The Tech puts its own spin on the models with immersive smartphones, programmed to let museum visitors interact with the models in three dimensions.

Everyone from San Jose Homes are Welcome at the Tech

The Cyber Detectives is an interactive exhibit, which teaches visitors about Internet safety. It’s a great way for kids 12 and older to practice their cyber savvy and for parents to see how their kids interface with online technology. Another super fun exhibit is Reboot Reality, which allows visitors to experience virtual reality and even create a virtual painting.

The Tech is located in downtown San Jose real estate, and visitors are welcome every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is closed from September 4th through 14th for maintenance, as well as Thanksgiving, and Christmas. If you have a household member with sensory sensitivities, be sure to check out the sensory-friendly hours. These special times include lower audio in the IMAX theater and in exhibits, rooms with calm-down kits, and a smaller crowd capacity. General admission is $25 for adults and $20 for students, seniors 65 and older, and children ages three through 17. IMAX films cost extra. For people who want to visit often, a membership is a great idea. They start at $60 for individuals and $140 for families.

Visit the Tech Museum of Innovation to see a current schedule, learn about the exhibits, and purchase tickets or memberships.

Get Back to Nature Near Your Redwood City Home at Edgewood Park

Explore nature near your Redwood City home.One of the perks of living in a Redwood City home are the amazing natural preserves close to home. A local favorite is Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve. The panoramic views are simply stunning. In the spring, the hillsides are a riot of color as the wildflowers bloom. Located at 10 Old Stagecoach Road, it’s very easy to get to the park on I-280. Redwood City real estate owners should plan to pack a picnic and head out to explore the park’s 467 acres of pristine California hills, trees, and flowers. Visitors will find grasslands, chaparral, and oak woods. There are 10 miles of trails, most of which are open for horses, as well as joggers and hikers. Some allow bicyclists, too.

Redwood City Real Estate Owners Can Volunteer at the Preserve

Plan to visit the Bill and Jean Lane Educational Center first and get oriented with information about the types of plants and wildlife you can expect to see as your walk through the preserve. Or save it for last and find out what you saw on your trip. The center is staffed by volunteers, so be sure to call 650.367.7576 ahead of your visit to double check on open hours.

During wildflower season, mid-March through mid-June, there are wildflower walks led by volunteers of the Friends of Edgewood. Come for an interpretive walk to learn about the plants and animals all year on the third Saturday of each month. The second Sunday of each month is set aside for bird lovers, who attend the Audubon Society’s bird walks. Groups are welcome, too. Call to plan a walk suitable for your group. Visit Friends of Edgewood to learn more about planned walks and learn how to get involved as a volunteer. 

Learn more about this natural treasure near your Redwood City home and find out about species of plants and animals, especially the Bay checkerspot butterfly. It’s on the endangered species list and only found at Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve
