At Berryessa Optometry, our passion for San Jose is just as clear as the quality vision and healthy eyes we work to provide to our patients!
San Jose holds the title of being the largest city in the Bay Area, as well as the largest city in Northern California. As the beating heart of the thriving high-tech enterprise, San Jose was nicknamed “Capital of Silicon Valley”. Our global city has many popular attractions for locals and tourists alike.
For family fun, the nearby Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose tops our list of favorite destinations. This interactive site allows kids to explore the amazing properties of the world around us. They can create unique artwork in the Art Loft, dig in the Kids’ Garden, excavate replica mammoth fossils, and get lost in a wonderland of floating bubbles. After uncovering the marvels of science, families can get to know the animal kingdom at the Happy Hollow Park and Zoo, located conveniently near Berryessa Optometry in San Jose, CA.
When the sun beats down, cool off with some outdoor thrills at Raging Waters San Jose. This premier water park in San Jose offers 23-acres of water attractions. Majestic views of Lake Cunningham and the San Jose Foothills can be viewed from the heights of this action-packed site. Be sure to leave time for the massive Wave Pool and Bombs Away, where adventurous visitors fall vertically from a trap door. Specialized areas for little kids are also featured. When you prepare for a day at this open-air park, it’s important to come equipped with protective sunglasses.
