West San Jose is arguably home to San Jose’s most famous landmark, the Winchester Mystery House. Guests can tour the 132-year-old mansion and learn the legend of Sarah Winchester. Marvel in the homes puzzling architecture – doors that open onto nothing, stairs that lead to the ceiling, and most of all the surreptitious number 13 lurking in every beautiful design. A short walk from the mansion, visitors can unwind at Santana Row – a European inspired shopping district and Westfield Valley Fair featuring a luxury-shopping wing.
Drive a little further west and indulge in Japanese culture, cuisine and shopping at Mitsuwa Shopping Center. We may be bias, but our favorite flavors are curated at Santouka, inside their food court.
Visitors will choose from upscale dining at Le Papillon to casual dives such as the Falafel Drive-In featured on the Food Networks Show “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.”
