I’m excited to share that my new book, San Jose Scavenger: The Ultimate Search for San Jose’s Hidden Treasures is out now!
Go on an interactive mission to explore 20 South Bay communities. Photos and riddles lead to more than 300 hidden gems including historic sites, architectural treasures and oddities, hidden works of art along with little-known museums, parks, and open spaces.
Discover an unexpected medieval fortification, burial grounds under a busy city park, towering South Pacific totem poles, a home with no right angles, and other unique finds. Learn the stories behind local place names and what Gilroy used to be known for, back before garlic.
Whether you are challenging your family or friends, or heading out to find these spots on your own, my hope is that these neighborhood adventures will help you uncover local secrets and get a deeper appreciation for our community. BONUS: The first few readers who complete the whole thing will win a custom print by a local artist – learn more & join the hunt.
If you liked learning about the places featured in Secret San Jose, I think you’ll love discovering more unique spots in these treasure hunts.
I had a lot of fun putting this together and I know you will have fun exploring with it!
