Hop on the fast track to fun in one of our Cruise America San Jose RV rentals. There are so many things to see and do in the city known as the "Hub of Silicone Valley," that it`s impossible to stand still, unless of course you want to stop moving in the name of relaxation!
While exploring San Jose, be sure to visit Paramount`s Great America. It provides some of the best family fun in the South Bay area. There is a variety of entertainment, including play areas, games, shows and thrill rides, such as the "Demon," the "Drop Zone," "License to Thrill" and "Stealth." There is also an IMAX theater. You may also want to visit Raging Waters, which is 23 acres of wild slides, a wave pool and a 10-story flume. While in San Jose, don`t miss the mysterious home of Sarah Winchester, heiress of the famous Winchester firearm fortune. It`s a behemoth mansion that Sarah believed to be haunted. She thought that if construction ever stopped on the home, that the spirits would do harm to her. She had the home worked on for the rest of her life, which resulted in a 160-room maze of stairs that lead to nowhere and countless dead ends. Other sights to see are the San Jose Heritage Rose Garden, the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum & Planetarium, the Tech Museum of Innovation, the Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph, the San Jose Museum of Art, and for the kids, the Children`s Discovery Museum of San Jose.
If you want to get out and explore the area surrounding San Jose, there are several daytrips that won`t take you long to get to. As an example:
Less than an hour away, traveling north on I-280 is the grand city of San Francisco. Explore the grandeur of the city. Take a double-decker tour bus that will carry you around the city as a tour guide shows you the major points of interest. Walk along Fisherman`s Wharf and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of this popular hot spot. Stop at Pier 39 and see the shops, eateries and entertainment. Oh, and don`t forget about the sea lions that make their home there, right on the K-Dock. Visit the beautiful Golden Gate Park, where you will get a generous view of the bridge, as well as the Conservatory of Flowers and the Bison at the Bison Paddock. Wander the Haight-Ashbury district where America`s counter-culture was born. Head to the Palace of Fine Arts in the Presidio and visit the Exploratorium. Don`t miss the farmers market at the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero. There are dozens of quality RV parks in and around the San Francisco area, so you won`t have a difficult time finding a place to park your rental RV for the night.
From the lures of the Bay Area to beautiful beaches and boardwalks in nearby Santa Cruz and Capitola, there`s nowhere your California RV rental can`t take you. Head to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Carmel-by-the-Sea for oceanic adventures, or go east to the Sierra Mountains for fishing, camping, boating and swimming in dozens of picturesque recreation areas.
