San Jose Airport Guide

As you’d imagine of a city in Silicon Valley, one of the main attractions is the Tech Museum which has many of the technological advances of the last fifty years on display in an array of machinery, interactive exhibits and demonstrations. It’s definitely one for geeks! On a macabre note, the Winchester Mystery House is a fascinating experience. Built by the heiress to the Winchester rifles fortune, the woman was so concerned about the ghosts of those killed with the rifles; she embarked on a never ending building program on her house. The result is a maze of rooms with a somewhat edgy feel to them – some have even reported seeing ghosts now that construction has finished.

Route 87 leaves from the airport gates and will take you into San Jose by hire car in under ten minutes.

San Jose Airport Parking

There’s quite a lot of parking at San Jose but it does get busy, so allow time to have to drive around. There are the usual long and short term sections as well as an economy lot accessed by shuttle. You can park and recharge electric cars at the airport and also wait free of charge in the cell phone lot. Mobility impaired drivers have their own section but it’s charged at the same rate as other users.

San Jose Airport Flight Information

San Jose International Airport’s only international flight is to Guadalajara in Mexico so if you want to travel to San Jose from Europe or the UK, you’ll need to make a connection at possibly Chicago or Atlanta depending on which fits your schedule or budget best.

Hotels Near San Jose Airport

Try the Silicon Valley Hotel, a mile from the airport. This pretty hotel will set you back $45 a night. The Valley Park at $65 a night is a little more special and again isn’t far from the airport or the city centre.
