Earlier this year, San Jose made the list of “35 Best Cities for People 35 and Under.” And it’s small wonder that this area is attractive, with its prime location in Silicon Valley and entertainment options.
Let’s explore what makes San Jose an ideal city for people under age 35.
Tech Employment Options
Last week, we discussed how nearby Sunnyvale ranked #2 in the nation for jobs. San Jose shares the same tech appeal, and Forbes cites the area as “the capital of Silicon Valley.”
For professionals under the age of 35, the nation’s cutting-edge technology hub is automatically appealing for those who are starting or continuing their careers.
Shopping, Dining, and Entertainment
San Jose offers an array of diverse entertainment options, from its plethora of shopping centers and outdoor spaces ideal for relaxing.
Walkability is important to young professionals, especially since many people in San Jose tend to walk or bike to work and around the area.

It’s Appealing as a Fit City
Alongside San Francisco, San Jose made the top 10 in the 2015 American Fitness Index. The report primarily cited the city’s abundance of farmers’ markets, low percentage of people who smoke cigarettes, and high percentage of commuters who bike or walk to work.
