Located in the South Bay Area of California, San Jose has many of the attractions of its famous neighbor to the north but with fewer crowds. A city finding its niche in shopping, historical tours, and golf, San Jose provides ample opportunity for entertainment. Big name acts, as well as the San Jose Sharks, play regularly at the city's HP Pavilion at San Jose. And visitors and locals alike take advantage of museums like The Tech Museum of Innovation, the Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose and the Intel Museum.
San Jose is extremely family-friendly and offers everything from water parks to the Winchester Mystery House, but this industrious town also caters to adults with wine tours, fine dining, and shopping districts that seem to stretch for miles.
