"Happening Downtown Street"

The office I work at is located on this street. It is right downtown San Jose. There are plenty of nice restaurants down Santa Clara street. One fairly famous place is the Britannia Arms, which I believe is or once was owned by a player of the San Jose Sharks hockey team. There is also a Togos and Starbucks coffee shop.

"hp pavillion, public transit hub, guadalupe trail"

west santa clara street is the tamer side of santa clara street. it starts at the amtrak station and ends at first. highlights of this street are the amtrak/caltrain/vta light rail station and the hp pavillion which is where the sharks play, various concerts happen and i believe there is an arena football league. there is a section next to the arena with a small park and is part of the guadalupe river walk. you can play tennis and look at various sculptures...i believe there is a giant sundial...but it has been a while so i could be confused. further east along this street you get more into downtown. one the of the popular bars on this side of santa clara is the brittania arms. aside from the london style phone booth outside, i never noticed anything else british about it, but i didnt hang there much. it is on this side of santa clara street where you can also find the main entrance to san pedro square, which is a nice little street with resturants and bars on it. but there is also food on santa clara street.

i am not sure about housing. like e. santa clara i believe any housing is overpriced mini apartments on top of businesses.

i think this street is pretty easy to walk down. at night there are obviously going to be more people and driving can be a pain as the cops like to park in the middle of the street...and when there is a sharks game, expect to see lots of people in sharks gear...its kind of nice...i never had much san jose pride when i lived there...but i always felt a bit more interested in san jose and when there was a sharks game.
