Shopping

https://www.westfield.com/valleyfair One of Silicon Valley's favorite shopping destination offering medium to luxury brands, Valley Fair has them. Apple and Microsoft both have retail shops here. Macy is an anchor tenant with Men and Ladies shops at each end of the complex. Lots of parking. Great eateries from the food court to ramen and Cheesecake factory. We love the ramen at Ramen Nagi but be warned, there is always a long line. Love Dumplings? World famous Din Tai Fung is here too.

The one stop for all your Asian cuisine desires: dim sum, Korean, Taiwanese, Mainland Chinese, bakery, boba milk tea, etc. OK, it’s not Asian but FYI, Starbucks is also here . There’s also a large Chinese market, where you can buy a fish and have it deep fried for free, located here. Need a delicious, quick and cheap bowl of noodles, go inside the market to the deli. After a satisfying meal, you can take a drive across the place to Apple HQ’s mothership, to see it from the outside.

This place is an amazing story of the Vietnamese who came into USA, fleeing their homeland and through their hard work and perseverance, made their “American Dream” come true! Try the many varieties of Vietnamese cuisine and desserts! Among others, my favorite is “broken rice” plates with choice of chicken, beef, pork or seafood at Cơm Tấm Thiên Hương.

Sarah Winchester was heir to the Winchester repeating rifle fortune, and she was convinced that the spirits of all those killed with that gun were haunting her. So she moved from New Haven, Connecticut to San Jose to construct her dream home. To confuse the restless spirits, she constructed one of the oddest houses ever built and kept construction in operation 24 hours a day, 365 days a year until the day of her death. The Victorian-style labyrinth that resulted features a door on the second floor that opens onto thin air, and others that open onto walls and stairs and corridors that lead to dead ends. It features 160 rooms and only 110 can be explored. Don't miss this intriguing attraction when in town

A quaint area about 2 blocks square in the heart of San Jose. See ancient temples, enjoy authentic Japanese food and snacks. I love having lunch at Gombei, very authentic home-styles dishes that a Japanese will eat!

Great for kids. Children's Discovery Museum has two floors worth of exhibits and activities, including a history of bubbles, face painting and all sorts of things to keep children busy and thinking. The museum is a giant structure straddling the Guadalupe River Park, so picnics are common for visitors. It is located right on the light rail station, which makes public transportation a snap. https://www.cdm.org/

The Downtown San Jose meet-up place for foodies, music lovers, locally-made shop supporters, etc, to hang out with the open-air plaza and sidewalk cafe or inside one of three unique interior spaces.

城市游览建议

出行
Uber and Lyft, sometimes Light Rail gets you around!
Unfortunately, San Jose does not boast of great public transportation. Buses and Light rail are available. Use Google Map's transit option to check for connections. Parking is usually convenient, even in downtown.
携带物品
Keep your snow boots at home!
San Jose has a very mild temperature. Most of the time, it is outdoorsy weather (around 70-80 F). Light jacket in evenings will do the job. Most restaurants are casual. They are more interested in your wallet!
