Under 35? Do You Know the Way to San Jose?

Despite high rents and poor public transportation, San Jose has been named one of the best American cities for residents under the age of 35 by Vocative in their “livability index,” checking in at number 26.

In addition to taking in to account the usual factors such as housing costs and public transportation, the index also measures such features as walkability, the number of sunny days, and the percentage of violent crimes per 100,000.

While admitting that San Jose isn’t nearly as “cool” as San Francisco – which was rated number 3 – the report stated, “San Jose ain’t the coolest place around, but the Willow Glen and Santana Row neighborhoods offer walkability and cool shopping, respectively.” What more could you want?
