When you think of San Jose, California the business section of the newspaper comes to mind, but it’s also a hidden gem for a weekend family road trip. It’s a perfect destination for families of all ages, but families who are new to road trips with small children will especially enjoy the quick travel to and from home and hotel, with ample opportunities to stop along the way and let the little people get out to stretch their legs, or get acclimated to a bit of a drive.

Downtown Attractions & Activities

Before your visit, check out the Downtown San Jose site for events, festivals, concerts and other activities downtown. The techies in the family will want to visit The Tech Museum, a hands-on science and technology museum with many family-friendly exhibits. Budding archaeologists will love the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, a favorite for local school field trips. Be sure to check out their curriculum resources if your kids are studying Egypt in school. If you visit during the holidays, be sure to include time for Downtown Ice, Christmas in the Park and Winter Wonderland. The Children’s Discovery Museum is one of the best in the country, be prepared to visit at least a couple of times during your trip! The whole downtown area is picnic friendly, so enjoy some time outside and do some geocaching between museums and enjoy a concert outdoors in the evening.
