Experience Access to the Best of the Bay Area All Summer for Less

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- If you're looking to avoid the crowds and hassles at the usual summer destinations, San Jose is offering great deals that give you access to the best of the city as well as Monterey and Bay area attractions for less moolah.

"San Jose is a best kept secret, and worth a look this summer if you're tired of the usual places and crowds," said Bill Sherry, CEO of Team San Jose, which runs the San Jose Convention & Visitors Bureau. "As the 10th largest city in the U.S., we offer the sophisticated hotels, attractions and amenities you would expect from a big city, but with the charm of a smaller town. As the Capital of Silicon Valley, we're a major meetings destination, so on weekends, leisure travelers get lower hotel rates than higher traffic destinations nearby. We've got top-notch family and cultural attractions, wineries, shopping and so much more right here, but you can also use as a jumping point to Monterey and San Francisco day trips."

From discount and free events, to hotel offers, wine and dinning events and shopping destinations, San Jose's got a lot of fun to offer this summer without damaging your wallet.
