San Jose Tourist Traps: 3 reviews and 0 photos

This well promoted attraction has been popular for years, even more so now that it has been televised on the Travel Channel. True, there is an interesting bit of history here, but I am not sure the place merits its steep entrance fee of about $25. That's your call.

That being said, I've heard that some visitors were very pleased with the garden area. It is a great climate in San Jose, once home to acres and acres of orchards.

Fun Alternatives: If you are looking for a way to keep the kids entertained, consider the Tech museum downtown. They always have interesting and interactive exhibits. There is an Imax theater there also.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
