Because of its location between major Bay Area thoroughfares, Milpitas is often called the Crossroads of Silicon Valley. The city’s central location allows easy access to nearby cities, but also pristine natural areas, such as the Milpitas Hills and an array of creeks. The region was largely devoted to strawberry, asparagus, apricot and potato cultivation until the postwar boom, when Ford announced it was moving its manufacturing plant there. After the tech boom of the 1980s, the population soared and now numbers over 80,000. Milpitas is home to the largest enclosed shopping mall in northern California, the Great Mall of the Bay Area. It was formerly the Ford Motor Company’s San Jose Assembly Plant.
