Family Attractions in San Jose

Some of the most unforgettable experiences in San Jose are best shared with family. Get outdoors and explore Happy Hollow Park and Zoo, stay indoors for stargazing at Lick Observatory or cheer on the San Jose Sharks at the SAP Center. Looking for a bigger adventure? Plan a day trip trekking through the majestic redwoods by foot or steam train and explore the beautiful scenery around San Jose.

Bay Area Day Trips

Looking for a bigger adventure? With so much to see and do in the Bay Area, San Jose is the perfect central location to relax between trips to the coast and the mountains. Plan a day trip with the kids to explore the beautiful scenery of the Bay Area.

Learn Something New

Expand your horizons in a city that’s equally rich in history, culture and technological innovation. Take the kids to dig for dinosaur bones at the Children’s Discovery Museum, become cyber detectives at The Tech Museum of Innovation, or take a trip back in time with the historical walking tour in downtown San Jose.
