What you should know about San Jose

Featuring tons of amazing attractions, incredible restaurants, and superb shopping opportunities, San Jose is the perfect vacation destination. It’s a city of two halves. Founded in 1777, it’s the oldest Spanish settlement in California, providing a wealth of history to discover. It’s also modern though, world-renowned as the heart of Silicon Valley and its entrepreneurial tech scene. These contrasting styles don’t clash though, but come together perfectly to create a unique and exciting city that provides unforgettable experiences.

Things to see in San Jose

The Winchester Mystery House is one of the most unique, intriguing attractions you could ever hope to visit. It was built by the widow of William Winchester, who supposedly based its eccentric design on the belief that the ghosts of those who died by her husband’s namesake rifle were haunting the property. There are also many cultural sights in San Jose. The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum has the largest exhibition of Egyptian artefacts in western North America, and includes a replica tomb and real Egyptian mummies. The San Jose Museum of Art is also well worth a visit. It features a large permanent collection of modern art, as well as rotating exhibitions. For an insight into the history of the area, plan a trip to Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph. This gorgeous 19th-century church is simply stunning, and features an incredible painted ceiling, hand-carved statues, and magnificent stained-glass windows.
