What Bert Has To Say About San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara Metro Area

This large metro area covers the southern portion of the San Francisco Bay Area and is otherwise known as Santa Clara County, or more informally, as the “Silicon Valley.” Once a quiet agricultural valley of orchards and small towns and anchored by the indistinct processing and shipping point of San Jose, the area has completely transformed over a period of forty years into an economic and technology powerhouse and cultural crossroads between America and Asia.
