San Carlos

A classic small town suburb of San Francisco, San Carlos offers an increasingly high standard of living with picturesque weather, a fine school district, and a savvy and sophisticated downtown on Laurel Avenue. San Carlos also offers an ideal commute location in between San Francisco and San Jose, with easy freeway connections and Caltrain access nearby. Early in its History, the City of San Carlos adopted the motto "City of Good Living." That phrase stuck and is still used today. With an ideal climate, charming neighborhoods, a thriving business/industrial district and a small airport with an adjoining museum and commercial area, San Carlos continually attracts new residents and businesses.

The emphasis on family living amidst genteel neighborly settings defines the community. The schools, parks, and recreation programs are particularly attractive for raising youngsters, while the vibrant downtown scene evokes San Francisco's Marina District with its chic upscale restaurants, wine bars, and cafes. Similar to Burlingame, San Carlos is able to achieve semi-urban amenities with its dynamic downtown, yet within a safe small-town suburban ambiance. Geographically, there is a wonderful diversity inherent to the area. Some fabulous family neighborhoods, such as White Oaks, are known for flat walkability and community interaction. Further up in the hills, such as on Crestview Drive, spectacular vistas of the Bay and San Francisco create executive estate settings. Other locales, such as Devonshire Canyon, create the feeling of rustic privacy amidst Tahoe-like nature. With its endearing sunshine and proximity to world class entities such as Oracle, Gilead Sciences, Google, and Stanford, it's no wonder San Carlos has become one of the Peninsula's most in-demand locations.
