Travel Tips for San Jose

Casual Clothes will do!

by Anthro

Roll-along bags work well. A sling backpack is pretty common too. There are nearly 300 sunny days annually in San Jose. Unless you're here for a convention, business meeting, or other professional reason, I'd go with jeans, T-shirt, shorts, and a light jacket or sweatshirt. Our days aren't excruciatingly hot, so swimsuits are needed only during a few extreme hot days in July or August. If you want to dress up a bit more, I'd go with khakis and a button down or polo shirt. Anything more than that and you might look out of place. We don't dress up for the movies and people usually come as they are. Typical necessities but there's drug stores all over the place for things you may have forgotten at home. A digital or regular camera. If you don't want to look like a tourist... PLEASE... Don't take pictures in the mall! It's a dead give away. towel, swimsuit, sunglasses, hat

Little Kabul .... in Fremont

by Ewingjr98

Little Kabul is a small area of Fremont's Centerville District, about 10 miles from San Jose. Though just a block long, the area hosts some 20 Afghan businesses and the city of Fremont has some 15,000 Afghan immigrants, making it the largest Afghan community in the United States. Little Kabul has a good market called the Maiwand Market as well as a few restaurants, the most famous being the Afghan Kabob House and Salang Pass.

Little Kabul is located along Fremont Ave in Fremont, between Peralta Blvd and Central Ave. There are a few more Afghan places along nearby Thornton Ave.

A Unique Experience

by CaraB about Santana Row

Santana Row shopping area is made up of wonderful places to eat, as well as great clothing and home furnishing stores. And if you need a break...sit in the park and play checkers, or enjoy the live entertainment and evening movies....all outdoors!

I travelled to San Jose via...

by jagr

I travelled to San Jose via the train, but flying there would probably be significantly faster.
Since San Jose is sprawling (it's bigger than San Francisco), driving is the best way. However, a nice way to get to San Francisco from San Jose is via Caltrain, a commuter rail service that runs between the 2 cities, and cities along the route like Palo Alto. The station in San Jose is across from the San Jose Arena.

Sushi mecca

by CCW about Tsugaru

Prices are on the reasonable side. The decor is minimal, bare walls and formica tabletops (although they always have fresh flowers on the tables, a real plus in my book!), so it can get noisy. Weekend dinners are usually crowded, but I've never had to wait more than 20 minutes for a table, and there's usually a spot at the sushi bar if that's your preference.

Note: This neighborhood is a hotbed of good, inexpensive Japanese restaurants. I've tried most of them, and this remains my favorite.

Word of warning: a lot of them close for several days to a week during the Christmas-New Year's period. One New Year's Eve, I went looking for Japanese food in this neighborhood, and ended up driving back to Campbell! Best sushi in San Jose -- and, in my humble opinion, it compares favorably with sushi anywhere else. Portions are generous (no peanut-sized rice balls here!), they're honest about what's in season and how fresh the fish is, and all the side dishes I've tried are good.

Their lunch specials are reasonably priced and substantial, and their dinner combinations are excellent too (my late mother, who was in her 90's, used to love their salmon teriyaki).
