With its roughly 126,000 residents, Santa Clara ranks ninth in population of all San Francisco Bay Area cities. Santa Clara sits between San Jose and Sunnyvale, sharing the same name with the county in which it is located, Santa Clara County.

Originally named after the eighth mission in California, Mission Santa Clara de Asis, the city’s origin dates back to the late 18th century. Throughout its history, Santa Clara largely contributed to local agriculture with many successful fruit orchards.

In the mid-20th century, Santa Clara’s population multiplied with the advent of the semiconductor. Silicon Valley, as the area became known, grew around Santa Clara. Many major tech companies are now headquartered in Santa Clara, including Intel, Texas Instruments and Applied Materials. With its proximity to San Francisco, the NFL 49er’s home field, Levi’s Stadium, is located in Santa Clara as well.
