We recently had a great three-day trip to San Jose! Our first day was amazing- we drove toward Santa Cruz through the most wonderful forest and took a train ride through the redwoods with Roaring Camp Railroad. The next day, the whole family was super happy at the Tech Innovation Museum. We checked out downtown San Jose, which was a little too stark. We were delighted to find Santana Row, a gorgeously colorful development with pretty architecture, sunny outdoor cafes, and flower boxes galore! It's just around the corner from Winchester Mystery House. The Egyptian Museum was a bit of a disappointment and I wished we'd gone to the Children's Discovery Museum on our last day instead. We found a great rope climby playground at Arena Green.
