For those looking to get out of Los Angeles and experience another side of the Golden State, head to San Jose. Located in the Northern Bay Area, the city boasts a bustling downtown area and even more to explore outside the area with plenty of reliable transportation. A rental car gives visitors the best and most convenient access to the entire Bay Area.
With multiple car rental companies located in SJC, visitors will be easily able to find a car that will take them to a number of different destinations. Just eight miles away from the airport, downtown is home to a number of shops, restaurants and bars, such as the Britannia Arms.
Visitors looking for a bit of culture and history, head to the San Jose Museum of Art, or the Tech Museum of Innovation. Outside of downtown, travelers will find unique attractions like the Winchester Mystery House, and Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum and Planetarium await.
The flight from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC) takes less than an hour and a half. In terms of driving, it is good to get an upgraded rental with GPS. While downtown San Jose is fairly easy to navigate, attractions outside of the area are spread out.
