San Francisco, California

While in the Bay Area, you might as well plan a day or two to take in San Francisco. San Francisco is one of those cities that need no introduction; like Hollywood and New York, this city already enjoys international renown for everything from sightseeing to shopping to entertainment. Popular San Francisco attractions include fine museums, theaters and destination neighborhoods like Chinatown and Union Square, and Fisherman's Wharf. One sure way to see the sights is to book a double-decker bus tour of the city, or cruise out to Alcatraz or over to see charming Sausalito and the giant redwoods of Muir Woods. Other favorite day trips can include a drive up to award-winning wineries in Napa and Sonoma.

Getting There

It’s easy to find your way to San Jose with three international airports within the Bay Area to choose from. 3.9 miles from downtown San Jose, the San Jose International Airport is the best kept secret for traveling to San Jose. The recent $1.3 billion modernization has made SJC one of the greatest, most convenient and most contemporary airports for visitors and includes such high-tech perks as free high-speed wireless Internet throughout and power outlets built into 25 percent of the seats.

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
