What exactly kind of scenery does San Jose actually have, except for dry, brown, low mountains in the distance? I mean, Minneapolis has beautiful parks and gardens with a pearl necklace of lakes, the Grand Rounds, a forested river gorge, and a scenic waterfall...all within city limits.

Your semi correct. The Diablo range to the east during the late spring through fall are brown dry low mountains, to the west is the coast range and those mountains remain green all year round.

Ive never seen someone put down the scenery of Northern California while trying to boost a city that otherwise wouldn't stand out from a scenery perspective.

Milwaukee's lakefront is pretty scenic.

I'm not putting down the scenery of Northern California, but the city of San Jose itself, obviously. Anyone familiar with Minneapolis will know that our parks and scenery are probably the most defining characteristic of the city from a quality of life standpoint.

San Jose for having the best downtown and climate. It also has a decent transportation system, too.

The strength of San Jose is that you don't just get San Jose, you also get easy access to the rest of the Bay Area and its environs. The downside is that you also get the downsides of the rest of the Bay, such as bad commuter traffic and expensive housing (though it's better in SJ than further north).
