San Jose

San Jose
The metropolitan center of Silicon Valley, San Jose considers itself a global city.
Step out of the city life by going to Monarch Grove Sanctuary and Pebble Beach Golf Links. Step off the beaten path and head to The Stanford Shopping Center and Big Basin Redwoods State Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Pacific Grove (Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard, Lovers Point, & more), Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park (in Felton) and Carmel (San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo Mission, Carmel River State Beach, & more). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Natural Bridges State Beach, grab your bike and head to Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail, and get a taste of the local shopping with Santana Row.

To see other places to visit, maps, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the San Jose trip website .

In January in San Jose, expect temperatures between 59°F during the day and 42°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
