A beautiful place near Silicon Valley, San Mateo County is expensive but has remarkable features. Places like Woodside, Portola Valley, Hillsborough and Atherton have 80% of the wealth, and 5% of the crime. Excellent police departments on top of problems.

I grew up here. This place has something for everyone. The weather is some of the most moderate in the world. There are hills, forests, streams, the ocean, a bay, suburbia and San Francisco right next to it.

a really nice drive from the Peninsula to the Pacific Coast. Costco to stock up and gas up, then a scenic drive to the coast for relaxation, sights and scenery. Lots of places to stop along the way, north and south.

Absolutely gorgeous area. 280/92, 92/35. You can't go wrong. There is a nice vista point at the top of 92 at 35. Looks out over Crystal Springs Reservoir and the 280 area. Great area for a local road trip.

Highway 84 is just part of the peninsula area. In general, the peninsula is the area that is on the western side of San Francisco bay. It is the land area that separates San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean. On the northern area is San Francisco and on the southern side is Santa Clara County. Many people live here... More

Home of SFO, the SF airport. The area between SF and San Jose near the Ocean side. Ringed by the Bay and the Ocean. Now part of the expanding "Silicon Valley" area.
