Earlier this month, we asked you to tell us what things about San Jose you’re grateful for — and as we near Thanksgiving — we’re sharing what you said.
Many of you appreciate what the city provides for us:
“I am grateful for our incredible libraries. They offer so much more than books. There are early childhood development mommy/me classes, ESL tutoring, citizenship test training, immigration and tax advice, homework help, and great story times.” — Amanda L.
“Our airport is beautiful.” — @kathleena.hanes
“The Registrar of Voters’ Office On Election Day!” — @sccvote
“The parks.” — @patrickslenses
“Grateful for all the beautiful outdoor spaces around town!” — @garden.gazing
And rave about our local establishments:
“I’m grateful for the variety of dog friendly places, several which are woman-owned. One of my faves is S27 Alehouse.” — @c.sanchez_17
“I am grateful for San Jose Bike Party! And the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, San José Strong, and Good Karma Bikes. I also gotta be grateful for Chromatic Coffee, Andy’s Pet Shop, Camino Brewing Co., San Pedro Square, Ulistac Natural Area, Alum Rock Park, and all the other places I love hanging out in SJ with friends.” — @itrhymeswithpenny
“The Last Round Tavern.” — @micsali
There’s a lot of love for each other (and food):
“The diversity here means we’re always learning from one another.” — @crossingtheratterlin
“My beautiful Rose Garden neighbors and neighborhood!” — @dhelia_mcbrinn
“Amazing food and humble people.” — @almond_stofu
“My neighbors.” — @fourthandjulian
“Diversity, so many good foods to eat!” — @john7o

And overall, your gratitude warms our hearts:
“A thriving city with so much opportunity!” — @california_coffeeshops_cafes
“It’s proximity to the ocean and San Francisco.” — @luv2_chat
“I’m grateful I can live here comfortably.” — @lamstew
Keep em’ coming — what about San Jose are you thankful for?
