With scores of shops, restaurants, and hotels, San Jose is the perfect West Coast destination.
This close to California wine country, you have to visit nearby Burell School Winery, housed in a restored red schoolhouse, or tour Lohr Vineyards and Wines; there are also several world-class golf courses in the area to choose from. Visit the HP Pavillion and see the San Jose Sharks hockey team play, or take in a performance by any of the dozens of big-name acts appearing at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts. The Hayes Mansion, a restored Meditteranean Revival home, is a popular destination. And don’t miss the famous statue of Quetzalcoatl downtown.
With 150 area parks, San Jose is an ideal city for outdoor recreation. You can stroll along the Los Gatos Creek River, or picnic in the parks scattered around the South Bay––and Almaden Quicksilver County Park features over 4,000 acres of hiking, biking, and horseback-riding opportunities, convenient to your hotel room.
San Jose truly has something for everyone––and if you do run out of things to see and do, the cities of Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Francisco are only a short drive away from popular San Jose accommodations.
