Besides Santana Row and Westfield Mall, you might also want to consider Great Mall in Milpitas. it is a short drive from Santa Clara.

There is Chidren's Museum in San Jose (not sure if mentioned alraedy) but it is a good one. Tech Museum is close by. There is also a fun farm to go to in San Jose called Emma Prusch.

It is an easy day drive to Santa Cruz and the boardwalk there, there is the beah.

Also a day trip possibly to Gilroy Gardens.

Also close to Santa Clars is The Computer Museum in Mountain View - its close to Google corporation.

There is a nice park there by the bay.
