Sixt Tips

Like most of California, San Jose was once ruled 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.
