San Jose, California, located in the beautiful California bay area, while less-visited than neighboring San Francisco, is nevertheless a popular tourist location for those seeking a well-rounded vacation experience. San Jose is known primarily for its investment in high-tech industries during the Silicon Valley rush of the 90s and early 2000s and represents, for many, the city of the future, with clean streets and high-tech computerized art installations. Despite being a high-tech location, a San Jose airport car rental is necessary if you want to get around the city which sprawls like many California cities. Between a variety of art and science museums, summer festivals, conventions, performance venues and a vibrant Japanese community, there's plenty to do on your trip to San Jose. Book your SJC car rental in advance or go to the San Jose airport information desk to see where you have to go to arrange a rental at or near the airport itself.
The San Jose International Airport (SJC) in California shouldn't be confused for the San Jose Airport at Mindoro, Philippines or the Juan Santamar'a International Airport (SJO) at San Jose, Costa Rica. If you're looking for SJC airport car rentals online, make sure you choose the California portal rather than the Philippines or Costa Rica portals. The airport at San Jose is the smallest Bay Area international airport, despite being attached to the largest metropolitan area in the bay, which combined with its relative proximity to the city and subsequent inability to expand makes it an extremely busy airport to travel through. Travelers may want to visit San Jose through the San Francisco International Airport or Oakland International Airport located just 35 miles to the north, as these airports see travel from more locations. Regardless, with twelve servicing airlines and over twenty-five destinations, all the major San Jose airport car rental companies should be easy to find from the airport. Travelers to San Jose should make a point to see the Tech Museum, located at 201 S. Market St near Park Ave, for an interactive experience of computer technology geared toward young and old minds alike. The museum offers a perfect way for kids to understand the modern day forces shaping all of our lives, from the Internet to computer infrastructure to the human body to exploration. If you want to get out of the high tech San Jose experience, be sure to get a SJC car rental and head out to the Alum Rock Park in the eastern foothills of Silicon Valley. This free, yet well-maintained, natural location is home to miles of hiking and biking trails. Intrepid explorers will be rewarded by finding hot spring baths that have been in use since the 1800s. Finally, one of the most well-known haunted houses in the country, the Winchester Mystery House, can be found at 525 South Winchester Blvd outside of the downtown area. Whether or not you believe it's haunted, Sarah Winchester certainly did and her subsequent madness resulted in a bizarre, twisted maze of staircases and hallways leading nowhere.
