For the longest time, we thought Dionne Warwick was singing "Do you know the way to Santa Fe?" because who, after all, would want to admit being lost en route to San Jose? Then along came the dot.com boom and suddenly San Jose got cool and everyone and his brother was getting lost trying to get there. The cooler it got, the higher its housing prices got.
Now of course things have settled down a bit. Now, we get to admire San Jose for things like great outdoor kitchens, like this one in a home listed at $2.9 million.
