Incorporated in 1925, residential and agricultural development accelerated in the 1940s and 1950s with the introduction of electronics plants and the arrival of Varian Technologies (now Agilent Technologies), one of the first high tech companies in the Silicon Valley. San Carlos today has grown into a prosperous community situated between the San Francisco Bay on the east, the Santa Cruz mountains to the west, Belmont to the north, and San Mateo to the south.
San Carlos is known as the “City of Good Living” and for good reason! Nestled between Redwood City and Belmont, the city offers its residents all that comes with living in the greater Bay Area while maintaining a small-town feel. The city also features a mix of high-tech businesses, a charming downtown and warm and friendly residents.
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”. Enjoy Burton Park, take a hike at the Pulgas Ridge Reserve, or bike along the San Francisco Bay Trail.
