Business Profile and Climate
Redwood City, California sits just 25 miles south of San
Francisco and 25 miles north of San Jose, right in the middle
of all the action. As the oldest bayside city in San Mateo
County, incorporated in 1867 and the County Seat since 1856,
historic Redwood City is a vibrant Community with a unique
combination of dynamic residential, commercial, high tech
and service industries.
Our one-of-a-kind waterfront city
strikes a balance between quaint and current. As the only
deep water port in the south
bay, the city pays homage to its past in the look and feel
of its distinct Downtown, while keeping an eye on its exciting
future as the Silicon Valley moves north and people migrate
south to enjoy the benefits of this unique community. San
Mateo County has the second-highest income per capita in
the Bay Area, and consistently falls in the top five in
per capita income in the state of California.
Home to the
Oracle Corporation and other high technology companies,
Redwood City also boasts a yacht harbor, world-class
accommodations and first class entertainment and dining.
Redwood City was made for strolling! The pedestrian-friendly,
tree-lined streets of the Downtown are home to a growing
number of fine eating establishments, and a dynamic mix
of shops to fit every consumer mood. With six lots conveniently
situated downtown, parking is plentiful. Downtown is easily
accessed locally, and by public transportation, highway,
rail and airport.
