San Jose - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

Yes to all. - Sep 2020

Probably for single men yes, for single women the anecdotal evidence is that this is not as fabulous a post. Couples, families, everyone can get into this post if they want to... - Jul 2018

For single men yes, single women just okay. Families yes because it is a really safe place, but costs will kill you to have fun. - Dec 2016

Better for couples and families I think. Singles may find it hard to meet people but speaking Spanish obviously helps. Couples will find plenty of romantic trips to take and families will find tons of quality beaches and swimming pools. - Apr 2014

It can be good for all, I think. - Jun 2013

I think it's a good city for singles & couples. If you have a family of four or more it gets pretty expensive! - Aug 2011

It's a little bit sleepy, but it is a great city for everyone. You will have fun in San Jose. - Feb 2010

We've enjoyed it both as a couple and then as a family (had our first child here). - Jan 2010

It depends on what you like to do. Single men, so I've heard, can be in Paradise..., single women probably won't be far behind, (depending on age and interests - sorry but it's true!). Families with young children will be disappointed that parks are extemely sub-par. If you like the outdoors and can get out to the beach (closest to San Jose being 2 - 21/2 hours away) every weekend, then people of all ages who like the beach can enjoy it. - Jul 2008
