San Jose is the third-largest city by population in California, the tenth-largest by population in the United States. San Jose is the largest city within the Bay Area and the largest city in Northern California. Before the arrival of the Spanish, the area around San Jose was inhabited by the Ohlone people.
San Jose was founded on November 29, 1777, as San Jose de Guadalupe, the first civilian town in this area. Now there are more than 6,600 high-tech companies, 250 thousand people who work here every day. Among the largest urban employers well-known companies such as Cisco Systems, IBM, eBay, Adobe, and others. 1/3 of all venture capital funds invest in the companies which are situated in San Jose and Silicon Valley. In addition, I strongly recommend to visit the Science and Technology Museum, astronomical observatory and water park
