Central San Jose
sits right next to the heart of downtown San Jose,
just west of Highway 87 and immediately south of San Jose International Airport. This neighborhood encompasses living options that range from new high-rise condos
for rent to small bungalows, with a smattering of classic Victorian and Craftsman-style dwellings as well.
The Guadalupe River runs right through Central San Jose, giving residents a respite from city life when they visit the three-mile-long park along its banks, culminating in a large regional park at the north end of the neighborhood. Local families take their kids there to enjoy playgrounds, a carousel and the Children's Discovery Museum. After a day in the park, stop by Henry's Hi-Life for the best barbecue in all of San Jose.
