The famously ghost-ridden Winchester Mystery House is one of San José's top tourist attractions.
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.
Across the Plaza from the Fairmont is the Tech Museum of Innovation, a treasure trove of gadgets that will thrill adults and children.
The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum is built in Egyptian style. It contains the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts on the West Coast of the USA.
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.
The Children's Discovery Museum is full of wonderful ideas for helping kids learn science.
The 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 Square is an historic dining and entertainment area with outdoor patio seating - perfect for a balmy summer's evening.
At the back of San Pedro Square you can find the Peralta Adobe House and the Fallon House, two of the oldest buildings in California.
San José is home to the USA's oldest quilting museum. This place should be an essential stop for all handcrafts fans and costumers.
Doh! You'd better believe it, people. San José has a donut museum. They bake too, and you can tour the kitchens.
