Redwood City

This city hosts many a tech company, but it’s also starting to get a name for culture.

Although it sits in Silicon Valley, Redwood City is getting a reputation for more than just the technology business. It’s the home of the Fox and Dragon theatres, which are putting on some great shows. The San Mateo County History Museum is set in a beautiful old building and is very insightful. Edgewood Park Natural Preserve tempts hikers with great views and seasonal wildflowers. The Pulgas Water Temple with its Corinthian columns is an idyllic spot for a picnic or a walk.
