Very funny! Thanks for the share. I'll have to show that map to some folks I know here who totally get the comparison. When you visit there with your family, hopefully everyone has a great time. Some places of note (nothing big but just to keep your eyes peeled if passing through): Santana Row in San Jose is kind of like their version of upscale dining/shopping like the Americana in Manhasset here. (I usually stayed at the Hotel Valencia on Santana Row when I was there- really nice hotel and expensive. Billed to my company at the time of course!) Castro Street in Mountain View is dotted with some nice eateries. The drive down to Santa Cruz along Highway 1 is somewhat scenic- the boardwalk at the Santa Cruz beach itself is kind of Coney Islandish in a way, but it's sort of interesting because of the retro type vibe.
