Fun Things To Do In San Jose, CA

Attractions, Sightseeing and Events


San Jose Tourism and Sightseeing
Located smack in the middle of the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas, San Jose is the perfect starting point for a little California dreamin’. We offer world-famous attractions, such as the smashingly spooky Winchester Mystery House, to hidden gems like the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum & Planetarium, featuring the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts in the western U.S. Since our downtown is one of safest and most compact in the nation, these streets were made for walkin’, with dozens of eateries, museums, performing arts, galleries and nightclubs within a short stroll. We offer the most diverse shopping in the Bay area, from farmers markets, outlet malls and the nation's largest outdoor flea market to the ?ber trendy Santana Row. Nature buffs don’t have to look far in San Jose for places to be a wild child. The Guadalupe River Trail is a beautiful 11-mile pedestrian and bicycle path near downtown that runs along the banks of the Guadalupe River. Or check out the Japanese Friendship Garden in Kelly Park, San Jose Heritage Rose Garden and other lush urban parks. Just 20 minutes from downtown lies the Santa Cruz Mountains Wine Region, noted by Wine Spectator as the "most under appreciated appellation in the world" and close to beautiful beaches.   Skip to Best Time to Visit.
