Why isn't san Jose a tourist destination when it's the largest city in the bay area?
Is it because it's more like a giant suburb rather then a city in the way it's super spread out

What in San Jose would attract tourists over San Francisco? It's no on the Bay. It has a non-vibrant downtown. You have to drive between pretty much every destination. There are some nice places to go in and around San Jose, but overall if I were a tourist I would much prefer SF, Santa Cruz, Monterrey.....

It's pretty darn boring. That might be one factor.

I'd attribute it to reputation which is largely a product of history and location.

San Francisco has a much richer history, more tourist attractions, liveliness, liberalism, quirkiness, and is all around more interesting than SJ. It's also bounded on 3 sides by the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay giving it a unique geographical setting.

As you said it is very spread out. It also doesn't have a central arts or cultural area like more established cities like NYC or SF.
