Rich in Spanish and Mexican influence and history, Redwood City and the surrounding areas are a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities. Originally a shipping port for lumber in the early days, Redwood City now houses businesses such as Oracle and Dreamworks. Residents here do have a higher cost of living, but in return they have a growing economy with numerous technology companies, an excellent health care system and a quality of life not matched in many areas of the country. Conveniently located restaurants, shopping and transportation to other areas of San Francisco make this city a great place to call home.

Executive chef and owner Manuel Martinez opened La Viga Restaurant, and residents can’t get enough of his take on Latin American/Mexican food.

On the weekends, you can usually find a DJ or band playing music.

History

Located 27 miles south of San Francisco, Redwood City’s first residents were the Ohlone Native Americans. In 1776, the Spanish arrived under the command of Colonel Juan Bautista de Anza. Spain controlled the California area until Mexico gained independence from Spain in 1822, after which time California became a Mexican territory. After California became the 31st U.S. State, Redwood City became the county seat of San Mateo County in 1856. The wharf district of the city provided needed transportation to the lumber industry during the early history of Redwood City, and this harbor still plays a large role in the economics of the city.

In downtown Redwood City, visitors can find the San Mateo County History Museum, located in the town square. Here you can explore the history of the Ohlone people and the logging community from the city’s early history, sit in the judge’s chair in the courtroom and stroll through ever-changing historical exhibits, including the archival and three-dimensional collections.

Each December the city hosts its Annual Children’s Festival and Fireworks Show in downtown Redwood City. Family-friendly events such as a Christmas tree lighting ceremony, ice sculpture demonstrations, a children’s parade and a fantastic fireworks display all set the tone for a fun, holiday outing.

The Fourth of July festival has been going strong for over 75 years, and each year thousands of residents and visitors come to the city for the spectacular festivities. The invitation-only parade, the largest Fourth of July parade in Northern California, brings in competitors from around the state, who vie for the cash prizes that are awarded to place winners.

In early October, Cañada College hosts the Arts and Olive Festival. Over 80 vendors from the olive industry come together in Redwood City to raise money for the college’s scholarship fund. Attendees can sample wonderful olive-themed foods and learn about the history of olives in the area. Children will love the face painting and crafts available, and everyone will enjoy the live music found throughout the festival area.
