Welcome to San Mateo
San Mateo is one of the larger cities on the San Francisco Peninsula. It features a charming and vibrant downtown, two large shopping centers, the county’s largest community college, several hotels, and major attractions such as the San Mateo County Event Center and CuriOdyssey, a fascinating museum for environmental education. Just west of the city lies Crystal Springs Reservoir with miles of open space and trails. The San Mateo Park neighborhood is perhaps the “premier” residential area, with its stately older homes, elegant, wooded traffic roundabouts that were originally created for horse-drawn carriages, and a diverse style of homes including Tudor, Craftsman, Colonial and Spanish. The city’s two largest employers are the San Mateo Medical Center and Franklin Templeton Investments.
