Start your holiday with windsurfing in Coyote Point Park, then dive into the world of science at CuriOdyssey, an experiential learning centre (not to mention a great pun). Exercising and using your brain sure can work up an appetite. Lucky for you, there’s a ton of restaurants around the main thoroughfare, El Camino Real; try tacos, ramen, yoghurt, hot dogs and more. Once you've had your fill, you can catch a nap at your San Mateo accommodation. When you wake up, take a leisurely walk through the Japanese Tea Garden—yes, holidays in San Mateo could give you that "aha" moment you’ve been waiting for. Then get some fresh air at the San Mateo Arboretum, where breathing just seems easier.
San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is just 12 km from most hotels in San Mateo, and getting to your lodging by public transit, taxi or one of our car hire options is simple. In town, walking and biking is the most effective way to hop from one site to the next, while taxis and buses can help with longer distances. When the big city calls to you, just book accommodation in San Francisco and hop on the Caltrain.
As the Silicon Valley techies might say, it’s time to go into stealth mode on your next holiday. Wotif’s awesome deals may not put you in the Three Commas Club (that’s for billionaires), but they will save you enough cash to buy an extra round for the brogrammers at the bar.
Hotels in San Mateo start at AU$147 per night. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
