Are you flying in for our Bay Area Mastermind meeting? We can’t wait to see you!
Here’s all the info you need to make your travel as smooth as possible.
Flights / Airports
You’ll likely want to fly into San Jose (SJC) as it’s less than 10 minutes from the Mastermind.
You can fly into San Francisco (SFO) but that can be 45-60+ minutes (especially with traffic) from our Mastermind.
You can also fly into Oakland (OAK), which is about the same distance away as SFO.
Accommodations / Hotels
Directly next to our meeting venue is the five star Signia by Hilton San Jose.
In addition to these three, there are also many other hotels downtown that are walking distance to the Mastermind.
Dining in Downtown San Jose
Downtown San Jose has a wonderful selection of restaurants ranging from fast casual to fine dining and everything in between.
During the Mastermind you’ll enjoy Executive Chef Roger’s fine dining.
While in town you’ll want to enjoy some of our California specialties like Mexican food (try Mezcal across from our Mastermind) or, a few blocks away, San Pedro Square which has a dozen plus different restaurants.
Getting around San Jose
Downtown San Jose is a very walkable city with everything you need within a block of so of the Mastermind.
Uber is abundantly available as well if you’re looking to get to or from the airport or head to a nearby city like Santa Clara, Campbell, etc.
Our VTA Light Rail runs through much of the Bay Area as well and Google Maps can help you find the right train and schedule.
If you’re heading up to San Francisco, Caltrain will take you right there from Diridon Station in San Jose.
If you’re traveling further afield, you can also easily rent a car either locally or directly from the airport.
