Sunday morning, Downtown Campbell shuts down it’s main street for a wonderful farmers market. Meet up with friends to walk along and pick-up some goodies to take home with you. Downtown also has one of the last great used books stores, an olive oil and balsamic vinegar shop with tastings, a map for a historic Campbell walk and/or a hike along the Los Gatos Creek trail. All this is within a 1.2 mile of the DoubleTree Hotel.

Winchester Mystery House:
Sarah Winchester was a true woman of independence, drive, and courage who lives on in legend as a grieving widow who continuously built (and built and built) onto her initially small, two-story farmhouse to appease the spirits of those killed by the guns manufactured by her husband’s firearms company.
Today you can tour through 110 of the 160 rooms of Sarah’s stately mansion, known around the world as the Winchester Mystery House, and see the bizarre attributes that give the mansion its name; a window built into the floor, stairs leading to ceilings, doors that open onto blank walls, a seeming obsession with the numeral “13,” cobweb motifs, etc. Highlights of the 65-minute tour include the “$25,000 Room,” hayloft, Sarah’s bedroom, Séance room, Morning room, Grand Ballroom, Venetian dining room, “Hall of Fires” and guest reception area, among many other destinations.
