DRIVING AROUND SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA
San Jose is an easy-to-navigate city near the coast of northern California. Its location makes it a good base for a vacation as it’s right along the main vein of traffic going to Monterey and upwards, yet it’s small enough to not be crowded and to be affordable for accommodations, food, night life, etc. San Jose may not be well-known as a vacation destination, but after just a little while exploring, you’ll soon see that there is much to do in this town. Here are a few recommendations:
- Winchester Mystery House — this popular tourist site has to be seen to be believed. Built by an ancestor to the Winchester gun manufacturer family fortune, it was always under construction due to the story of a curse placed on the home. It offers tours through the very unique inside of the house as well as the gardens and help quarters. Even more spooky are the night time tours in the dark!
- Zoo and parks — San Jose is home to the Happy Hollow Park and Zoo, as well as many outdoor parks such as Brigadoon Park and Guadalupe River Park and Gardens. Calabazas park is a rarity, a park built for BMX use and is a lot of fun both to participate in and to watch.
- California’s Great America — While not located directly in San Jose, this amusement park has coasters and other rides and games. It’s a great place to spend the day and is a short drive away in Santa Clara.
- Gilroy Gardens — About 45 minutes south of San Jose, Gilroy Gardens is a horticulturally-themed park, which includes rides, beautiful gardens and other exhibits and displays, making it a fun adventure for all ages.
San Jose is home to many major restaurants and unique boutique eateries and shops, so you will not run out of places to explore and wander, on foot or via rental car. Because of its location, if you intend on leaving the city, you will need a vehicle, so contact Fox and let us help you save money on your San Jose visit!
