    Default San Jose to Sacramento CA

    Need advice on which route to take from San Jose CA to Sacramento CA. We will be traveling on a Saturday - late afternoon. Mapquest shows 3 choices: I-680, I-5, and I-80. Any advice? We will be stopping along the way to geocache and prefer routes that do not have multiple stoplights and shopping plazas! Thanks for any help!

    My software says the fastest way from downtown is 880 to 680 to 80. It's 100% freeway (the Benicia-Martinez bridge is a toll bridge) and has no traffic lights. Traffic shouldn't be that much of an issue on Saturday. If you are leaving from elsewhere in SJ, it may need to be modified slightly but the goal is to be on 680 by the time it turns inland near Fremont.
