There are numerous universities in the city with San Jose University, San Jose City College at the forefront and a number of students fluctuates around 50,000. San Jose is a multinational city that brings about numerous dating possibilities. Below are some, in our opinion, interesting proposals for not only the first date in San Jose.


Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph, San Jose, CA

Proximity to the airport was not without influence on the architecture. Downtown area is under the final approach corridor to the airport. Therefore, we do not find here magnificent skyscrapers and building height is limited to about 300 feet. Despite the fact that citizens complain about the architectural style of the building, you will still find here some interesting and worth seeing objects during your date in San Jose. If this is your first romantic visit to the city you should necessarily see Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph, Downtown Historic District, Plaza de César Chávez, the Hotel Sainte Claire, and the De Anza Hotel, which due to the architectural and historical significance are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It is worth to see the Winchester Mystery House – an unfinished residence of Sarah Winchester, the widow of William Winchester, widely regarded as haunted and famous for its unusual architectural features which was to protect against ghosts.

Another important festival, which is hosted by the city, is the San Jose Jazz Festival.
