San Jose, CA Apartments for Rent

You can’t think “San Jose” without thinking “high tech!” This is the heart of Silicon Valley, after all. It is also California’s third-largest city and the 10th largest in the US (based on population). So is it just computers that draw people to apartments in San Jose? No way!

Sure, there are great employers in the area like Cisco, eBay, Adobe, IBM, Qualcomm, Ericsson, Samsung, and Hewlett-Packard. But San Jose is also home to San Jose State University and just a short commute to such intriguing locales as the beachside resort of Santa Cruz or the Golden Gate city of San Francisco.

San Jose residents are happy – yes, the weather is great, the location is fantastic, and there are plenty of fun things to see and do here, but there’s more. San Jose residents have the nation’s highest median income, the city produces more patents than any other in the US, and working here is fun! In 2014, Careerbliss.com listed San Jose as the happiest place to work in the country. Apparently, in addition to high salaries, workers in San Jose also get to enjoy “fun and innovative” work environments.

Most of those happy workers are produced right in the Silicon Valley – not far from San Jose (the capital of Silicon Valley), there’s the University of California-Berkeley, the University of California-Santa Cruz, California State University, San Francisco State University, Stanford University, and others.

The fantastic weather, the strong arts and culture scene, and the Great America theme park are also terrific reasons to rent an apartment in San Jose. As you explore this gorgeous city, be sure to check out the Downtown Historic District, which includes buildings built in several architectural styles. Also, after renting your San Jose apartment, be sure to enjoy the San Jose Museum of Art, Broadway San Jose, and the SAP Center at San Jose – home of the NHL’s San Jose Sharks!
