Local Lifestyle


Redwood City is a magnet for professionals who work remotely in San Francisco or Silicon Valley. As such, the city has a high concentration of technology workers and their young families. But it’s just as appealing of a place to call home for retirees, artists, entrepreneurs, and anyone who wants to savor a balanced, exceptional lifestyle. The town’s Courtyard Square is where Redwood City’s action is at. You might bump into your neighbors here at Redwood City’s ongoing events like Friday nights’ “Music in the Square.”

Dining, Shopping & Entertainment


Redwood City’s understated elegance is reflected in its assortment of restaurants, both those it possesses and the eateries nearby. One of the choicest spots in the area is the sleek and intimate
Ranzan. This authentic Japanese venue specializes in Omotenashi and features a rotating menu aligned with Japan’s seasons. Sushi Shin may be small in size, but it’s huge on flavor, while Freewheeling Brewing Company is the place in town to cheer your friends and family with locally-crafted beers.

Selby’s is another Peninsula hotspot. Located a short distance away in Atherton, the swank spot offers dishes ranging from roasted chestnut soup with braised apples and candied pepitas to butter-poached Maine lobster with potato risotto. Linger over a glass of wine and dessert. Their limoncello mousse with Huckleberry jam and Sicilian pistachios raises the bar on our understanding of spectacular.
