Things to do with kids in San Jose

About San Jose, CA

As the largest city in the Bay Area and 3rd largest city in the whole State, San Jose has something to offer everyone. The reach of San Jose is large and covers almost 180 acres, but within the city limits you will find numerous parks, a multitude of cultural festivals year round, and at least one neighborhood that you will want to call home. You can access most of what the city has to offer by foot, by bike or by bus but having a car will make travel to the rest of the bay easier.
