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.

Downtown 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.
