Winchester Mystery HouseThe famously ghost-ridden Winchester Mystery House is one of San José's top tourist attractions.

QuetzalcoatlPlaza fountains A statue of the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl can be found in the Plaza de Cesar Chavez in downtown San José. The fountains, which are in front of the Fairmont hotel, are very useful on hot days.

The TechInside The TechAcross the Plaza from the Fairmont is the Tech Museum of Innovation, a treasure trove of gadgets that will thrill adults and children.

Rosicrucian Egytian Museum Rosicrucian Planetarium Rosicrucian Temple

The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum is built in Egyptian style. It contains the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts on the West Coast of the USA.

Fry's Electronics  storeNo, this is not a temple to Quetzalcoatl, it is the San José branch of Fry's Electronics, a chain of giant computer superstores. Hardware, software or Jolt Cola, if you can't get it here, it probably isn't available. A must for all geeks.

Children's Discovery MuseumThe Children's Discovery Museum is full of wonderful ideas for helping kids learn science.

Center for the Performing ArtsThe Center for the Performing Arts: wonderful acoustics, but sadly too expensive for a filk venue. We'll let you know what concerts are on during ConJosé.

San Pedro SqaureSan Pedro Square is an historic dining and entertainment area with outdoor patio seating - perfect for a balmy summer's evening.

Peralta Adobe HouseFallon HouseAt the back of San Pedro Square you can find the Peralta Adobe House and the Fallon House, two of the oldest buildings in California.

Museum of Quliting and TextilesSan José is home to the USA's oldest quilting museum. This place should be an essential stop for all handcrafts fans and costumers.

Lou's Living Donut MuseumDoh! You'd better believe it, people. San José has a donut museum. They bake too, and you can tour the kitchens.
