Welcome to San Mateo
From San Francisco Bay to the east to the mountains along the Crystal Springs reservoir to the west, San Mateo is a celebration of diversity. One of the largest cities on the Peninsula, San Mateo is a great place to live and work. Multiple retail areas, including downtown San Mateo with scores of restaurants, shops, a movie complex, and parks of all sizes and features make the city comfortable and convenient.
San Mateo’s diversity is represented by its various neighborhoods: woodsy San Mateo Park, Highlands in the hills, Shoreview by the bay, and close-to-downtown Baywood are just a few. San Mateo is also home to large corporations as well as mom-and-pop businesses. This city offers something for everyone.
