They don’t call San Carlos “The City of Good Living” for nothing. San Carlos is a pleasant, little city in the middle of the Peninsula halfway between San Francisco and San Jose. It has a small-town vibe with an impressively active downtown full of shops and restaurants. Neighbors are friendly and schools are well-ranked. What more could you ask for when looking for your new home for sale?
For such a small locale, residents and visitors are never at a loss when it comes to things to do in San Carlos. Museums capture the storied history of the town as it continues to modernize and grow by way of population and appeal. And popular Laurel Street drives community engagement with the weekly farmer’s market and a variety of restaurants ranging in cuisine. Even the parks get in on the action with sponsored Music in the Park events being held in San Carlos Burton Park throughout the summer.
San Carlos students are educated through schools in the public San Carlos School District, private, non-public, or charter schools from kindergarten to middle school. These schools consistently rank well among California institutions. And with the closing of San Carlos’s only high school decades ago, high school students attend Carlmont in neighboring Belmont or Redwood City’s Sequoia High School.
Although there are plenty of shops and dining options here in downtown San Carlos, it’s still a mostly suburban, residential city. Public transportation needs can be met by Caltrain and SamTrans to get around and out of town to nearby cities for work or additional play.
