Things to do on Santana Row

NORTH YARD HOUSE, 4 minute walk

Try one of the more than 100 brews on tap, or choose from a rotating monthly “chalkboard series” of some of the most unique and complex beers. An extensive street food–esque menu, and original artwork.  300 Santana Row, Suite 101, 408-241-9273, yardhouse.com

SOUTH WINCHESTER MYSTERY HOUSE, 5 minute walk

Like most Queen Anne Victorian mansions, this one features gold-plated chandeliers, imported Tiffany glass windows, and exotic wood floors. But doors that go nowhere, switch- back staircases, labyrinth-like hallways, secret passageways, and upside-down columns? It’s all part of the eccentrically bizarre design of a beautiful 160-room former residence that has had visitors scratching their heads for the past eight decades. 525 S. Winchester Boulevard, 408-247-2101, winchestermysteryhouse.com

EAST MUNICIPAL ROSE GARDEN, 34 minute walk

After a day full of shopping on Santana Row, unwind like a local in this five-and-a-half-acre public garden. A natural grass stage offers a raised view of the more than 4,000 rose shrubs and 189 varieties of roses, with something always in bloom so there’s a year- round kaleidoscope of reds, pinks, and purples. Naglee & Dana Avenue, 408-794-7275, sanjoseca.gov

WEST YEGANEH BAKERY, 11 minute walk

Go for the namesake homemade wheat flatbread; stay for the fresh juices, like cucumber and watermelon. This traditional Iranian café features familiar ingredients composed in unique ways, like beef tongue and chicken jambon, plus savory yet refreshing desserts, like carrot juice floats and saffron ice cream. 3275 Stevens Creek Boulevard, 408-666-1229, yeganehbakery.com
