Living in San Jose

At the South end of the CalTrain line, with easy access to Silicon Valley, there’s San Jose, a university town that’s home to tech start ups, a great art scene, and many a righteous burrito. San Jose has a light rail serving downtown and the outlying neighborhoods, plenty of bike routes, and great California weather.

San Jose State University is in the heart of downtown, as is the San Jose Museum of Art. Light rail serves Milpitas, Campbell, and Mountain View, so you can live outside the city center and still be close to transit. San Jose has a newer international airport and it’s a central hub for the Bay Area.
