Orientation and Maps
(San Jose, California (CA), USA)
Often given the title of Silicon Valley's capital city, San Jose is regularly overlooked and really does deserve a visit. The city of San Jose has grown dramatically in recent years and has now become the third-biggest city in the whole of California, with a population of around 900,000 residents. A true metropolis in every sense of the word, San Jose can be found at the meeting point of the US-87 highway and the I-280 interstate.
Many people choose to fly into the city each year and arrive at the Norman Y Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC), which is located on the northwestern side of the city. The airport stands off the US-87 highway and has become the region's main air transport hub.
