SAP Center - San Jose, CA

Known to its fans as the “Shark Tank,” the SAP Center is the current home of the NHL’s San Jose Sharks and the AHL’s San Jose Barracudas. Since opening in 1993, the indoor arena has seen a variety of sporting events, including figure skating, college hockey, arena football, tennis, wrestling and UFC. Most notably, it hosted three games of the 2016 Stanley Cup Finals. The Shark Tank is also a popular concert venue, with stars like Rihanna, Bon Jovi, Justin Bieber and Elton John all making appearances.

The arena is located just off the Guadalupe Freeway next to scenic Guadalupe River Park. Plenty of parking is available onsite and in the nearby area. Season ticket holders are allowed to pre-purchase parking permits, but otherwise it’s first come, first served. The San Jose Diridon Station is within walking distance, so fans can also access the arena via the Amtrak and ACE networks. Doors to Sharks games open 75 minutes before face-off, and professional cameras, selfie sticks and gifts for performers and athletes should be left at home.

Hungry fans can grab a bite to eat at one of the many concession stands at the SAP Center or walk to one of the restaurants within a half-mile of the arena. A short drive to the other side of State Route 87 in downtown San Jose allows for even more options. Outside food is permitted for Sharks games, but not for concerts. Other popular attractions in the city include the San Jose Museum of Art, the Tech Museum of Innovation, and Santana Row, a shopping district popular with Silicon Valley tycoons.
