Bay area city is rich in culture, attractionsHere's a quick question to find out if you're really a savvy Calfornia traveler: True or false, the three largest cities in California are Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco? No cheating, now - we all know it's awfully easy to look this stuff up on the internet.
Time's up. If you answered true, we're sorry to tell you that you just don't know your state as well as you thought you did. The third largest city in California is San Jose - which is, in fact, the 10th largest city in the country. According to the 2000 Census, San Jose has 894,000 residents compared to San Francisco's 876,000.
It should come as no surprise, then, that there is a lot to see and do a city that size. While most people don't automatically think of San Jose as a weekend getaway, it has the shopping, the culture, the hotels, the restaurants and the tourist attractions to make it worth anyone's time to visit.
