San Mateo’s mild climate and freshwater creek made it an ideal location for its first inhabitants, the Ohlone Indians, and later for an outpost of the Spanish mission already established on the Peninsula. In the early 19th century, the land was part of two large Mexican ranchos. By the 1850s, wealthy San Franciscans were building grand summer and weekend homes in the city. San Mateo has steadily grown to become one of the largest suburbs of San Francisco. Its unique natural attractions include Coyote Point Park, a rock peninsula which juts out into the Bay, and San Mateo Beach. Situated at the crossroad of three major freeways, San Mateo offers convenient access and an exciting mix of neighborhoods, shopping and restaurants.
