Because we don't LOL
Within the state, we visit San Francisco (maybe might go to Oakland/Berkeley), Los Angeles, and San Diego, and Anaheim, the last one due to Disneyland being there.

San Jose ranks below Sacramento and above Riverside and San Bernardino.

I first went to Disneyland and Knott's Berry farm in 1963 or 64??, as a child.

I've been to Sacramento, Riverside ( I had family in Hemet ) and San Bernardino as well, so I kind of know of what you speak.


San Diego I haven't been in years..I mean years...1980's. I want to go back...I get close, Palm Springs every couple of years so I really should.

Ok, I've actually heard that there is a really good sushi buffet in San Jose but I haven't been to it. The last decent one I have gone to in the Bay Area was in Hayward. Can't remember the name of it now but I will totally go to San Jose to try the one there.

That, or the vast majority of interesting food and drink establishments are either near Kitsilano or Commercial, both of which are about 15 minutes away from downtown. The densest concentration of Asian food in the entire continent is located 30 minutes south in Richmond. As a contiguous region of population, I would agree the Bay Area including SF and Oakland has quite the significant leg up over the Lower Mainland, but San Jose as an independent urban & metropolitan area is not in the same league of international relevance and QOL as Vancouver.

The poll (and question) would be very different if it was phrased "Bay Area (San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland) CSA vs. Lower Mainland (Vancouver, Sunshine Coast, Fraser Valley)"

Nonsense! San Jose is truly an international cosmopolitan world class global city: Capital of Silicon Valley-high tech capital of the world. What are you talking about? Vast majority of interesting foo and drink establishment is in Dt. SJ..

For a city to be considered a "world class global city" it needs to have some kind of international recognition. San Jose does not. I'm a pretty well-travelled Brit (in fact just spent two weeks in California and Las Vegas) and I couldn't tell you a thing about it other than what the OP has posted on here. It's just not on the radar.
