San Jose

City in California

San Jose is a global city, notable as a center of innovation, for its affluence, Mediterranean climate, and extremely high cost of living. San Jose’s location within the booming high tech industry, as a cultural, political, and economic center has earned the city the nickname “Capital of Silicon Valley”.

San Jose is an expensive place to live overall but less expensive than other nearby cities. The median home price is $1M and the median household income is $100k. The cost of living is 59% above the national average and 15% greater than in other California cities. My favorite place in San Jose is Santana Row.
