Santa Clara is located in the center of Silicon Valley, just 45 miles southeast of San Francisco. Because Santa Clara is so centrally located, you can easily access almost any part of California. Oakland is a 50-minute drive and San Jose is a short 15-minute drive. Awesome public transportation options, like Amtrak and CalTrain, make shopping, dining, and traveling so much more enjoyable too!
The business climate is also great (you're close to almost every major tech company in the U.S.) but the geography is better. The ocean and mountains are nearby, as is wine country, the redwood forests, and San Francisco. If the outdoors aren't your thing, just stick around town and enjoy the citywide wi-fi.
