Downtown San Jose is the central business district of San Jose, California, is located in Santa Clara County, and is part of Silicon Valley in the Bay Area. It is the largest urban center in Silicon Valley. Downtown is one of the largest tech clusters in Silicon Valley, as well as the cultural and political center of San Jose. The downtown area was typical of a small, agriculture-based city of under 100,000 residents but as the city rapidly expanded into outlying areas, the downtown area entered a period of decline. In the 1980s, mayor Tom McEnery, whose family owned several buildings downtown, initiated significant gentrification in the area. It is home to Adobe World Headquarters, BEA Systems HQ, and numerous facilities and offices of major tech companies, including Amazon, Lab126, and soon Google.

San Jose, the capital of Silicon Valley, is known for its unbeatable weather, incredible hiking trails, and safe suburban neighborhoods. Thanks to the tech boom, though, the cost of living is considerably higher than that of other cities in the golden state. Even so, it’s still more affordable than San Francisco.


Many middle-aged people in the area are lifelong residents, but younger generations are opting to become part of the mass exodus from the Bay Area that has been going on for the past several years. While it’s not as bustling as places like LA and SF, San Jose offers gems of its own. The rich history, cultural diversity, and easy access to surrounding cities, beaches, and California landmarks make it a suitable place for families to settle down or young professionals to start their careers.
