San Carlos

The City of Good Living

San Carlos, “The City of Good Living”, aims for a “small town” feel. Its main downtown area is composed mostly of small shops and restaurants. San Carlos was the first city in California to open a charter school (San Carlos Charter Learning Center), and its schools rank consistently well in statewide lists. The city is on the San Francisco Peninsula, about halfway between San Francisco and San Jose. It is a small affluent residential suburb located between Belmont to the north and Redwood City to the south.

San Carlos is home to San Carlos Airport and two museums. Located downtown, the San Carlos History Museum is dedicated to the display of the history of the town from early Native American history to the space age. The Hiller Aviation Museum, a museum specializing in helicopter and aviation history, offers interactive exhibits and more than forty aircraft including a replica of the first aircraft to fly, a spy drone with a 200-foot wingspan, and the nose section of a Boeing 747.

Every May, the town hosts the “Hometown Days” carnival in Burton Park, the city’s largest park. In October, the Chamber of Commerce hosts the San Carlos “Art & Wine Faire”. October 2015 marked the 25th year it has been held. Every Sunday morning, Laurel street is home to a weekly farmer’s market.

Competition is fierce in San Carlos, as it remains a highly desired place to live. With beautiful parks, great schools and a hip downtown, many homebuyers flock to San Carlos. With its charming downtown bungalows in the White Oaks area to the estates that line upper Eaton Avenue and the beautiful Devonshire Canyon hill-top homes, San Carlos is continuing to grow and develop as more residents plan to remodel their properties. It is rumored that it takes more than a year to have home plans approved through the city due to high demand.
