San Jose Municipal Rose Garden

Thousands visit this park each year to view the beautiful varieties of roses in a profusion of colors and types. A resplendent sight to behold, the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden also includes a few fountains and a reflecting pool, making it a great spot for a quiet stroll even if you aren't a rose aficionado. Take a look at the map of the place, which lists the names of all the varieties of roses, some of which are rare kinds.

Emma Prusch Farm Park

This urban farm covers an impressive 47 acres (19.02 hectares). It has school tours, orchards, a barnyard, picnic areas and places to fly kites. It is a great place to bring kids, especially if they like animals as there are numerous breeds of rabbits, chickens, geese and ducks for them to befriend. The property was originally given to the city of San Jose with the intent that it be used as an agricultural learning center, and in this respect, it succeeds admirably. Admission is free.

California Theatre

The fun never stops at the California Theatre. This huge venue hosts annual events, theater performances, music concerts and even competitions. Past events include the Library of Congress "Song of America" Tour with Thomas Hampson, the International Russian Music Piano Competition, and a San Jose Youth Symphony performance. The venue used to be a FOX movie theater and it has a top-notch sound system and comfortable seats. See the website for further details.

Alum Rock Park

Established in 1872, the Alum Rock Park is by far the oldest municipal-operated urban park in all of California. Located at a distance of just 7.72 kilometers (4.80 miles) from the heart of San Jose's urban surroundings, this oasis of greenery is clasped on the slopes of Diablo Range's verdant valleys. Spanning nearly 720 acres (291.37 hectares), the park's grounds are traversed by the roads and trails of Alum Rock Falls, Calaveras Fault, and Sierra, making every corner of its protected lands accessible for off-roading enthusiasts and avid hikers. The park is dotted with classical wood-carved trail signs that add a rustic vibe to your overall outdoor experience. Wildlife includes red-tailed hawk, Cooper's hawk, turkey vulture, black-tailed deer, mountain lions.

Montgomery Theater

Montgomery Theater has been the home of the San Jose Children's Musical Theater for many years. It is right in the middle of downtown San Jose and is within walking distance of all major hotels and restaurants, making it convenient for visitors as well as locals who want to grab a bite before or after the show. Built in the style of a Spanish mission, this elegant theater is connected to the City National Civic. Credit card acceptance varies by show.

Children's Discovery Museum

Children's Discovery Museum has two floors worth of exhibits and activities, including a history of bubbles, face painting and all sorts of things to keep children busy and thinking. The museum is a giant structure straddling the Guadalupe River Park, so picnics are common for visitors. It is located right on the light rail station, which makes public transportation a snap. The museum offers facilities for birthday parties and special events for all sizes of groups, from small gatherings of 10 to large groups of 1000.
