San Mateo County/Silicon Valley is the best of the San Francisco Bay Area, with sunshine, 90 miles of Pacific and San Francisco Bay coastline. It is San Francisco’s closest neighbor and home to San Francisco International Airport, yet known for its scenic beauty.  (More than 70% of the land here is dedicated open space and the views are unparalleled.)

The incredible fresh, local produce, seafood, wine and microbrews make it a renowned culinary destination and cultural activities abound, including world-class museums, wineries, galleries, entertainment venues and Stanford University. Nature lovers enjoy tide pooling, whale watching, deep sea fishing, seeing elephant seals at Año Nuevo State Reserve and hiking throughout acres of scenic open space. Sports buffs have choices year ‘round, with the San Francisco Giants, Golden State Warriors, Oakland As and San Jose Sharks a quick mass transit ride away.

San Mateo County/Silicon Valley has the best of everything “California”.
