    Settle into the scenic Bay Area

    Redwood City enjoys a prime Bay Area location just to the north of Palo Alto, making it convenient for business travelers visiting local tech businesses in Silicon Valley or Stanford University. The cities of San Francisco and San Jose are both less than an hour’s drive away, making fabulous sightseeing a possibility from any Redwood City vacation rental. With numerous local parks, a vibrant live music scene, farmers’ market, and historic downtown, there’s also plenty to explore within Redwood City itself.

    Enjoy Redwood City’s live music

    From your Redwood City vacation rental, explore the area’s historic downtown by following the Redwood City Path of History walking tour. This is also a very family-friendly city with more than 20 public parks to explore and enjoy. The city plays host to many free live music events over the summer months, including Music in the Park in Stafford Park, Sounds of the Shores in Marlin Park, and Music in the Square in the city’s Courthouse Square. Add to this Redwood City’s many restaurants, lively bars, new theater complex, and historic 1929 Fox Theater, and there are plenty of reasons to head downtown.

    Explore Redwood City’s history

    Downtown Redwood City is home to several 19th- and early 20th-century buildings, including the San Mateo County History Museum, where you can delve into the city’s roots. History buffs will also enjoy the Filoli House and Gardens, in neighboring Woodside. It offers a fascinating glimpse into the life of the wealthy Californian family who built it more than 100 years ago. Take a guided tour around the house or simply wander the colorful, flower-filled gardens to enjoy a picnic, or take afternoon tea on the neatly manicured lawns. If you’re staying at your Redwood City vacation rental with kids, you can delight them with a visit to California’s Great America theme park in Santa Clara, just a 20-minute drive away.

    Redwood City through the seasons

    Like most of the Bay Area, Redwood City enjoys warm, dry summers and cool, wet winters. July is the warmest month, with temperatures usually hovering around the 70s, but occasionally getting as high as the low 100s – the perfect weather to enjoy Redwood City’s live music events. If you’d prefer milder temperatures, fall and spring are great times to visit, providing ideal weather for sightseeing. Winters can get cold, but are usually relatively mild, and snow flurries are very rare.
