The metropolitan center of Silicon Valley, San Jose considers itself a global city.
Get some cultural insight at Carmel Mission and National Steinbeck Center. Take a break from the city and head to Pebble Beach Golf Links and Big Basin Redwoods State Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Jose: Carmel (Point Lobos, San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo Mission, & more), Pacific Grove (Lovers Point & Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard) and Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park (in Gilroy). Spend the 23rd (Wed) exploring nature at Pinnacles National Park. Spend the 26th (Sat) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. The adventure continues: grab your bike and head to Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail, take an unorthodox tour of Winchester Mystery House, admire the majestic nature at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, and enjoy the sand and surf at Natural Bridges State Beach.

To see maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the San Jose day trip planning tool .
