San Jose Rental Cars
The culturally diverse hub of San Jose is home to an eclectic array of museums, art, cuisine and historic buildings. When you’re traveling to San Jose, there’s no better place to spend your time than the outdoors. The city boasts hundreds of unique venues and recreation options, and the beautiful weather makes it easy to spend time outside throughout the year. To boot, the countless museums and galleries will have you thinking about extending your trip here. You may want to drive over to Yosemite National Park or cool off at Raging Waters. And if you’re bringing a four-legged friend along, San Jose is home to eight designated dog parks.
Have fun learning
Families traveling to San Jose will love all the museums peppered throughout the city. The Children’s Discovery Museum is a must-see for any child because it offers hands-on learning experiences. As one of the largest museums of its kind in the nation, this attraction boasts more than 28,000 square feet of semi-permanent and traveling exhibits, allowing children to touch, explore, manipulate and experiment. This attraction is an exciting vacation destination! You may also want to visit the Ira F. Brilliant Center for Beethoven Studies, which home to the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts in the Western U.S.
Enjoy the outdoors
You can easily head over to the Family Camp at Yosemite and spend the night under the stars. Families with children of all ages can enjoy fishing, hiking, swimming or just relaxing in the heart of the Sierras near the national park, and can also opt to spend the day at one of California’s largest water parks - Raging Waters. This massive park features 23-acres and millions of gallons of water for high-speed slides, a wave pool and a lazy river.
Catch a game
Don’t miss tailgating festivities at one of the many professional sports stadiums throughout the city. No matter what time of the year you are traveling, your family can catch an arena football, hockey, and minor league baseball or soccer game! If you’d rather play a game yourself, families can head to one of the many parks to toss a ball around. Alum Rock Park is the oldest municipal park in the state, and families can play horseshoes, go hiking, play sand volleyball or swing on the playground.
Although it’s the epicenter for technology companies in the United States, there’s far more to San Jose than just business. In fact, it’s a great place for families and couples to share adventures, indulge their passion for culture and just kick back and relax in the heart of Northern California. Here’s just a few favorite places within driving distance:
- Winchester Mystery House
- Rosicrucian Park & Egyptian Museum
- The Tech Museum of Innovation
- J. Lohr Winery
- Raging Waters (water park)
