The City of Good Living

San Carlos is known as the City of Good Living. It aims for a “small town” feel. Its main downtown area is composed mostly of small shops and restaurants.

The city is on the San Francisco Peninsula, about halfway between San Francisco and San Jose. The small affluent residential suburb is located between Belmont to the north and Redwood City to the south.

The median home price in mid-2022 is $2.2 million. The price per square foot is $2,200.

Beautiful Parks, Hip Downtown

Competition is fierce in San Carlos, as it remains a highly desired place to live. With beautiful parks 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.

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”. This year will mark the 30th year! Every Sunday morning, Laurel Street is home to a weekly farmer’s market.
