Explore an active city in exciting San Jose, California

Situated just 50 miles south of San Francisco, San Jose is the third-largest city in the Golden State and is, by far, the biggest city in California's tech-savvy Silicon Valley. Founded during the California Gold Rush, the lively boomtown that never went bust was the very first state capital. Today, San Jose is a prime destination for travelers who enjoy mixing business with pleasure.

Some travelers arrive in San Jose as a business guest and choose to stay an extra night or three to enjoy the nightlife. The recently renovated downtown area has plenty to offer in the way of dining, lodging, cultural attractions and entertainment.

How to get there

The nearest major airports serving visitors in San Jose are Metropolitan Oakland International (OAK) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). Each is roughly 50 miles from downtown San Jose. Smaller aircraft may fly in and out of Monterey Peninsula Airport (MRY), approximately 80 miles away.

Drive time on I-5 North from Los Angeles to San Jose is five to six hours, depending on traffic. To drive from San Francisco to San Jose, take US 101 South for about one hour.

San Jose attractions
Guadalupe River Park

Visitors are sometimes surprised, and always delighted, to find a three-mile paved walking trail within steps of their downtown San Jose hotels. The trail extends from the Children's Discovery Museum northward to Interstate 880, and is accessible by entrances at most major cross streets downtown.

California Theater

The opulent California Theater is a must-see for anyone with an interest in musical presentations held in an acoustically perfect room. You don't have to be a symphony buff to enjoy an evening at the California Theater, which occasionally shows silent movies accompanied by a live organist who rises from the orchestra pit.

The Tech Museum of Innovation

The 132,000-square-feet of the massive, mango-colored museum house four major galleries, and each is jam-packed with fascinating exhibits that describe the story of modern technology. Take in an eye-opening movie at the IMAX dome theater or go hands-on in a guided workshop.

Winchester Mystery House

No visit to San Jose is complete without a guided tour of what many people consider the most haunted house in California. Was Mrs. Winchester a bit eccentric? Take a tour of her home and decide for yourself. The possibly-haunted and surely sprawling 180-room mansion was under construction for nearly 40 years. To enjoy an exceptionally frightful time, sign up to take a flashlight tour of the Winchester Mystery House during the month of October.

San Jose events
San Jose Jazz Summerfest

Every August, San Jose plays host to a remarkable lineup of jazz musicians from around the world. Featured artists at the three-day event have included David Sanborn, Snarky Puppy, Soul Rebels, Conjunto Chappottín y Sus Estrellas and Bootsy Collins.

San Jose Viva Fest

This annual summertime event celebrates the music, heritage and flavors of Old Mexico. Billed as a “cultural institute without walls,” the San Jose Viva Fest offers a variety of free musical events in downtown San Jose during the months of September and October.

Where to stay

San Jose is well used to accommodating business travelers and vacationing families, so there are a range of well-established budget and luxury hotels alongside a high concentration of bed and breakfast inns. You’ll find popular brands like Sheraton, Hyatt and Clarion Inn offering value for money and excellent service in downtown locations.

Best time to visit

San Jose's location near the coast means the climate is temperate all year long. There hasn't been an extremely rainy season in California in many years, so you probably won't need a raincoat. Do bring a light sweater, however, because evenings in San Jose can be chilly any season of the year. Whether for business, pleasure, or a bit of both, visitors to downtown San Jose always find plenty to keep them well-fed, comfortably lodged and highly entertained.
