5) San Jose, CA
Like San Francisco and Oakland, San Jose saw its rental prices rise once the Silicon Valley companies moved in. San Jose is a still bit more affordable than its neighboring cities—a one-bedroom apartment in the city costs an average of $2,270. If you work in a tech company in Silicon Valley, San Jose is a great place to live because it’s right in the valley. Even if you don’t work in tech, there’s plenty to love about San Jose. If you like quirky attractions, check out the Winchester Mystery House, a gigantic 160-room mansion that’s filled with strange oddities. There’s also the San Jose Museum of Art, which features contemporary California art. The city also has an Egyptian museum and a lovely rose garden. Plus, it’s home to Paramount’s Great America, a theme park that both kids and adults will love.
