San Jose Map CA

Let me warn you that there is more than one San Jose: San Jose, California and San Jose, Costa Rica. This entry is about San Jose, California. San Jose is overshadowed by the legendary status of both Los Angeles and San Francisco, but it is actually the 10th largest city in the United States with a population of nearly 1 million. Even though it is somewhat bigger than San Francisco, they are part of the same extended metro area (the Greater San Francisco Bay Area) and San Francisco is somewhat more famous because of it`s the central focal point of the Bay area, and it`s longer history as a major city. Some people break this area down into the San Francisco Bay Area, and the San Jose/Silicon Valley area rather than counting them as a single metro area. But together they make up an urban area of 7.5 million people, the sixth largest metropolis in the USA.

Until the 1950s San Jose and the Santa Clara Valley was a mostly undeveloped agricultural area, but development rapidly accelerated after that. And as the valley became a technology center that attracted business and workers from elsewhere, the area became rapidly more urbanized.

Like the San Francisco Bay Area in general, San Jose`s climate is subtropical. Though it receives less rain because of its location inland and partially surrounded by mountains. Summers are warm and dry, and winters are mild with highs in the range of 15-20 degrees (59 to 68 F). Though winter lows are in the range of 5 to 8 degrees (40 to 46.5 F). It is an all around pleasant place to live.

Here`s a San Jose map for your reference.
