Things to Do in San Jose
San Jose packs plenty of attractions. Head to the California Theater, a renovated venue that hosts top-notch symphony, opera and films. Learn about the visionary achievements of Silicon Valley at The Tech Museum of Innovation, which is one of the nation's premier science and technology museums. Throughout the year, many music and sports events are held at HP Pavilion. Sports fans might want to catch a San Jose Sharks hockey team game here, but watch out - when the Sharks play, the pavilion is known as the Shark Tank.

If you're traveling with kids, be sure to check out the Children's Discovery Museum, filled with hands-on exhibits and climbable attractions. Happy Hollow Park and Zoo is another popular draw, since it's home to more than 140 animals, family rides and a puppet theater. To experience the San Jose nightlife, make your way to Loft Bar and Bistro, Tres Gringos Cabo Cantina and Fahrenheit Restaurant & Lounge among other spots in the neighborhood.
