San Mateo

San Mateo has it all! A vibrant yet safe and clean downtown, complete with an array of local shops, restaurants, a movie theater and even a performing arts theater. Beautiful Central Park is nestled right on the southwest edge of downtown and features above ground tennis courts, a lighted baseball field, a large playground for children, impressive botanical rose garden, and even a Japanese tea garden and koi pond. Many fun events are located there including the famous music in the park series and firefighter's chili cookoff in the summer. In the winter, holiday spirit is in the air with decorative downtown lights and an Ice Rink with a Christmas Tree in the center of the park.

Charlie Chaplin and other Hollywood legends made efforts to make San Mateo the “Hollywood of the North” and feelings of old Hollywood can be evoked when walking through neighborhoods such as Baywood, Downtown Eastern Addition and Hayward Park.  Situated between the ocean and the bay, the weather in San Mato is ideal. Mild in the winter and warm but not too hot in the summer.  With friendly neighbors and great schools, it’s an ideal place to call home whether your retiring, starting a new family, or beginning a new career.
