Description

The San Jose Municipal Rose Garden is one of the best rose gardens in the world. In fact, it draws thousands of visitors from all over the world each year.

What began in a one-time prune orchard now contains over 4,000 rose bushes representing 189 varieties. In addition to the rose garden, there's also a big grass area with a natural redwood amphitheater, a reflecting pool, and a two-tiered fountain.

The best time to visit the 5 1/2 acre rose garden is in early May when the roses reach their height of bloom and fragrance.

While my kids enjoyed eating lunch surrounded by the redwoods, they enjoyed running through the rose garden smelling the roses and playing hide-and-seek even more. Be sure to bring pennies to toss into the fountain. Who knows? Maybe your wish that they'll fall asleep early that night will come true.
