San Jose Quick Guide
San Jose is perhaps best known for the late 60s Grammy-award winning song by Dionne Warwick that asks, "Do you know the way to San Jose?" It's actually easy to get there; map it here on YELLOWPAGES.COM.
And did you know that this popular northern California city also has a rich Native American and Early Spanish heritage, and has the distinction of being the oldest civil settlement in the Golden State? San Jose was also the site of California's first state capital.
San Jose is also known for its amenable climate, which features nearly 300 days of sunshine year-round and mild temperatures that contribute to its popularity as a great place to visit, or - even better - a great place to call home.
The city's economy is driven by distribution, food processing, high technology, medical treatment and research, retail, tourism and transportation.
The City of San Jose maintains a Customer Service Call Center at (408) 535-3500; the TTY telephone for the hearing impaired is (408) 294-9337. One call helps San Jose residents navigate the many departments and services available.
