Metroblogging City #53: San Jose!


Please join me in welcoming our 53rd Metroblogging City–San Jose, California! It’s pretty odd that it’s taken SJ so long to be represented here on our blog-network, being the home of Silicon Valley and the birthplace of many things tech, but I say better late than never! This is also our 5th Metroblog in the great state of California!

Here are some interesting facts about San Jose, courtesy of Wikipedia:

San Jose is the third-largest city in California, and the tenth-largest in the United States. It is the county seat of Santa Clara County. For the past several years, it has held the title of The Safest Big City in America. San Jose is located in Silicon Valley, at the south end of the San Francisco Bay. With a population of 912,332 San Jose is the largest city in Northern California. Once a small farming city, by 1950 San Jose was a magnet for suburban newcomers in new housing developments (1960s to the 1990s) and became a large thriving urban center of Northern California.

Stop on by and say “Hi!”
