Weather and Climate

Like much of coastal California, San Mateo has a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and cool summers, where temperatures are moderated throughout the year by ocean breezes. Summers in San Mateo tend to be dry with cool winds and fog — an effect of the Santa Cruz Mountains which stand between the city and the Pacific — and winters usually have more rainfall. Like most of the Bay Area, San Mateo County has different microclimates as a result of varying elevation levels and weather influences from the ocean, which means that certain areas are noticeably sunnier on a regular basis, whereas others tend to receive much more rainfall. The average humidity level in San Mateo is 73%, and humidity levels are often highest during January at about 80%.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

A smaller Bay Area city, San Mateo sits nestled between the Santa Cruz Mountains and San Francisco Bay and augments its ideal location with many memorable parks, an active downtown area, and popular museums.

At Coyote Point, a large coastal park and one of the city’s most prominent destinations, visitors gaze north for breathtaking views of the Golden Gate City and can spend an entire day at CuriOdyssey, an interactive science museum with wildlife and environmental exhibits. Just outside of town to the south, the historic landmark Filioli is a 654-acre country estate encompassing a Georgian Revival mansion, pristine Italian gardens, an orchard, and nature trails.

Downtown San Mateo features more than 800 restaurants, bars, and shops — plus historic buildings and local street art largely influenced by the city’s Spanish and Japanese roots — making it one of the most vibrant business districts among suburban towns in the Bay Area. Families praise San Mateo Central Park, known for its Japanese Garden with a pond and tea house, as well as an ice skating rink and a miniature train. Other in-town getaways for outdoors enthusiasts include Seal Point Park for bayfront windsurfing, Mariners Point Golf Center for a short course along the coast, and Laurelwood Park for picturesque picnic spots and trails leading to Sugarloaf Mountain. Sawyer Camp Trail — a paved, six-mile-long path along Crystal Springs Reservoir — begins just on the west edge of town and makes scenic hiking and biking as convenient as ever.

Transportation

As part of the Bay Area, San Mateo offers many public transportation options. The San Mateo County Transit District (SamTrans) provides bus service through San Mateo and surrounding cities in the county, and the Oakland-based AC Transit bus service provides routes across San Francisco Bay to Alameda County via the San Mateo Bridge.
