This place is the world capital for Christmas 🎅 lights - incredible place with all different home lights inside or outside. Look at the pictures and you will understand- amazing 🤩 walk with kids for whom celebrate 🎉 Christmas 🎄 or not. Respecting the culture and most of the houses are calling for peace and love. Just enjoy and of course I highly recommend this Christmas 🎅 lights place for the world! Happy holidays guys at Google maps
The trolley barn and trolley rides at History San Jose are a classic. The Trolly Corp. has an original trolley that ran in San Jose until the s, it's fully restored. A definite stop for families with kids or people who love local history.
They have a exhbit of artworks from the local artists of the bay area.
Awesome visitor spot for the little kidos. This is located right next to the rotary park. They have live reptiles, fishes and educational learning. It looks like its close but ring the door bell and someone will answer. It will be worth it.
At the Umbarger House you will find a kitchen garden that functions as a classroom for urban gardening. Often used by the Boy Scouts for small projects. We visited to plant vegetables and herbs and as an example of Google Local Guide activities for social good. If you stop by the garden within a couple weeks of this review you may enjoy some of our plantings! 🌱 👩🌾 👨🌾
I’ve visited a lot of Gurudwaras back home(in Delhi), and every time I visit one, I feel a sense of undefinable peace. And the visit here was no different. I sat in the prayer hall for a long time, and felt at peace like I have only a few times before in my life. The prayer hall is huge, and being inside the hall is a sublime experience. They provide masks as well, and try their best to enforce covid precautions. The langar hall is behind the prayer hall, and the food is pretty good as well. You can do sewa(service) in the langar hall as well. They’ve ample parking outside too and the views outside the gurudwara are amazing too. I’ll be back here again.
Really like the puzzle in this place. A tad bit hard but it's always an awesome and thrilling experience. Especially if you have a nerdy group you are sure to feel the passionate thrill when you are able to solve each puzzle. They have puzzles for group sizes but larger the group, the harder the puzzle. Absolutely recommend trying this place out if you love solving puzzles and doing group activities.
I was lucky enough to enjoy the incredible landscape and wildlife during one of my hikes. The trails were well maintained and every which way you visit within the grounds throughout the year offers a unique glimpse and experience on how the land changes. Its not as hot in winter and spring which in my opinion is the best hiking weather. The preserve is a welcome retreat from the everyday work grind, and it is only minutes away from Silicon Valley. A most definite soothing and reflective site where you can see as far as Oakland and San Francisco on a clear day. Simply amazing and breathtaking 🤩
Nice serene place. I learn that the Rudram, Chamakam chanting, and Vishnu saharanamam chanting one day a week is very good, though I couldn't attend them.
Educational and historically relevant to San Jose. Comfortable space, well aired out (except last shed area with equipment outside that is naturally musty). Lots of benches to sit and read exhibits. Wonderful for older visitors and also myself as I need to sit often. Staff are nice and welcoming. They offer free tours which sounded fun (we roamed alone, but could hear it going on). Student discounts bring the 8 dollars entrance fee to an affordable 5 bucks. One downside is you need to show proof of a booster vaccination (not just the initial vaccination doses, but your booster shot). So remember to prepare that! I enjoyed my visit. The gift shop is quite small. The museum exhibit is a pleasantly shorter length, as it took us about an hour to finish. It was quiet with only 1 moderately sized guided group and us there during weekend peak times.
A marvelous wine tasting opportunity. While they are one of the largest producers and distributors of wine, the tasting gives you access to their retail wines as well as their members-only and limited production wines. They have large vineyards between Monterey Bay and Paso Robles and source several varieties from others in the Central Coast. Tastings are generally an hour with servings of five wines and great discussions of their many wines and grapes. Interactions with staff makes tastings a very worthwhile experience.
A nice place! Full of history feeling!
A city park worthy of five stars! It's free, clean, safe and convenient for parking. It has several doors that allow you to enter and exit easily, but pets are not allowed in. I entered from the side with wisteria. Under the corridor covered with wisteria, I smelled the faint smell of soil and flowers, and looked at the green rose fields. At this time, the roses were not in bloom, and most of them were buds. Only occasionally, you will find a few scattered blooming flowers. There is a fountain around the railing in the garden. The water from the fountain shines brightly in the sun. The water in the pool is clean and clear. Due to the epidemic, people pay attention to keeping a safe distance. Some sit around the bench next to the fountain to bask in the sun, some sit under the blooming tree to enjoy the flowers, and some enjoy the rose fields while walking. They see those blooming flowers taking photos with their mobile phones ... Everything here feels so good! A place worth coming to! I will definitely come back in the near future, when the garden will be more beautiful and better!
Visited park and Sierra Vista Open Space Preserve to bike. For bikers, trails and miles are limited, but the wrap-around and reward sections were fun. You will earn the fun, however, because some climbing sections, for me, were hike-a-bike. For hikers, you could spend a day hiking the perimeter. For everyone, max out the water you carry. Visited on a Monday morning and lots of people, mainly walkers, on trails. If you make it to the top you'll be rewarded with expansive views of San Jose. This park has lots of historical structures - stone bridges, train trestles, a cabin, hot spring ruins- along the paved road.
Challenging steep semi-shaded hike. Do bring water and watch your step for dog poo that people aren't picking up 😥 Plenty of parking and great views
Wow! Beautiful church, the best one I've ever been too. Was there for a wedding. The details in the decor and even the ceiling is Beautiful. Have to see if you are near or in town
