Is Santa Clara a town where I'll need a car to get to work?
Yes and no. In Santa Clara it all depends on where you work and where you live. There are some excellent rail links via Caltrain and Amtrak, but short local hops are harder. If you can bike to work, that would be great, but most likely you will end up needing a car if you live any distance away from the rail stations.

An ideal weekend in Santa Clara might begin at the fun-for-all-ages California's Great America theme park. After a few rounds on the rollercoasters and water rides, be sure to check out one of the city's great museums, like the Harris-Lass Historic Museum, the Triton Museum of Art, the De Saisset Museum, or the Intel Corp.
