roadbikeRob saidSome of you guys need to keep in mind that San Jose is a much larger city than both San Francisco and Oakland. I am sure that a central city of almost 1 million in population would offer some interesting things to see and do. San Jose cannot be all that boring. It is now "the city" of northern California as far as population and economic activity is concerned.
San Jose is not really a city - it is a giant suburb of about 1 million. Not really much of a downtown - anywhere.
It is, however, closer to the nude beaches on the coast - which might be warm enough to visit if you are lucky enough to get some nice warm days when you are there (not unheard of in the winter here.) And (though not at all gay) there is excellent hiking in the Pinnacles, and SJ is close to the Monterey/Carmel/17-mile-Drive tourist areas
