San Pedro Square is a perfect starting and ending point for your days in downtown San Jose. A few words about our neighbors:
Discover a variety of retailers tucked inside some of downtown’s grandest buildings. From T-shirts to diamond jewelry, and comedy clubs to cozy hideaways, there’s a lot to explore in the Historic District.
Arena/Diridon & Vicinity
This is where urban meets utopian. The hustle and bustle of downtown juxtaposes with the serenity of the Guadalupe River Park and Gardens, a carousel and playground, and the ultimate entertainment venue in the city’s core: the HP Pavilion.
Convention & Cultural District
Make a day of museum and park exploration, hotel pampering, paseo strolling, film screening and performance viewing. The Tech, Children’s Discovery Museum, San Jose Museum of Art plus downtown’s cinema complex, the Center for Performing Arts, and San Jose Repertory Theatre leave visitors wanting for more.
St. James Park & Vicinity
An area of hidden treasures, a walk through St. James Park reveals protected historic architecture, new residences and gems such as a German beerhouse and a clothing store for blue-collar workers. A shaded park with lush, cool grass provides a stunning centerpiece.
SoFA (South First Area) & Vicinity
SoFA defines and refines downtown’s entertainment experience, especially when nightclubs, restaurants, art galleries and the California Theatre light up South First Street. An abundance of dining, stage, music, art, dance and other eclectic offerings await.
