DRIVING AROUND SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA
San Jose is an easy-to-navigate city near the coast of northern California. Its location makes it a great spot to start a vacation, as it’s convenient to Monterey and cities further North, yet small enough to not be crowded. The city is also affordable for accommodations, food, night life, sporting events, and more. While San Jose may not be well-known as a vacation destination, it doesn't take much exploring to see that there is a lot to do there. Here are a few recommendations:
- Winchester Mystery House — this popular tourist destination has to be seen to be believed. Built by the Winchester family, makers of Winchester guns, the house is always under construction due to a matriarch's beliefs about a curse placed on the estate. Winchester Mystery House offers tours through the very unique home, as well as the gardens and help quarters. Want something even more spooky? Check out the night time tours in the dark!
