San Jose (meaning St. Joseph in Spanish) or San José is the third-largest city in California and the tenth-largest in the United States. It is located at the southern end of the San Francisco Bay Area, a region commonly referred to as Silicon Valley.
Once a small farming city, San Jose became a magnet for suburban newcomers in new housing developments between the 1960s and 1990s, and is now the most populous city in Northern California and the Western United States north of Los Angeles. Its estimated population by the US Census Bureau as of 2009 is 1,006,892.
