Circle of Palms Plaza, San Jose
The concrete set around the seal contains quotes from the state constitutional convention in 1849. You can also see the Museum of Art at one end of the plaza. Other interesting adjacent locations include the Silicon Valley Financial Center, as well as the Fairmont Hotel, which are interesting landmarks in their own right.
There are lights illuminating the plaza at night that make a very interesting sight. If you visit this area during the winter months, you'll be able to take advantage of an ice rink. Even if you are not a skater, spending time watching people on the rink is always worth it.
