Sixt Tips back to top

Like most of California, San Jose was taken over by the Spanish. Before their arrival the region was inhabited by the Ohlone people. San Jose has come a long way from its original agricultural roots and has transformed itself into a booming tech and cultural center. Rather spread out, when you rent a car in San Jose, CA, you get to take in its sights with more ease and at your own pace. Make stops at fantastic museums or head a bit further out for shopping along Santana Row. You can also drive and park up at the many trail heads in and around San Jose to begin a hike along the Guadalupe River or into the foothills.
