The city of Cupertino is situated west of San Jose in Santa Clara County, California. Western portions of Cupertino also extend into the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains giving it ease of access to beautiful natural spaces. With a population of around 60,000 people, it was ranked by Forbes magazine as one of the most well-educated small towns in the United States of America. In addition to that, it's home to a number of corporate headquarters such as Apple Inc. The name of the city dates back to March 25, 1776, when Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza arrived at the arroyo of San Joseph Cupertino, which was a creek named by Anza's cartographer who named it for Saint Joseph of Cupertino. Nonetheless, the land of modern-day Cupertino didn't earn its name until San Francisco lawyer and historian John T. Doyle named his winery "Cupertino." Doyle's winery was located on McClellan Road and, by the 20th century, the area once called the "West Side" had been changed to Cupertino.
