Redwood City is located in the Bay Area 25 miles south of San Francisco, and about 27 miles north of San Jose. It is approximately 19 square miles in land area with a mean elevation of 15 feet above sea level. The community combines residential, industrial, and commercial elements in a largely urban environment. The City is easily accessible from Highways 101 and 280, and extends from the San Francisco Bay shoreline to the hillsides of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Today the city is known as the home of several technology companies such as Oracle and Electronic Arts.

In an attempt to revitalize Redwood City’s downtown, city officials decided to look into development. In August 2006, a new 20-screen theatre and various shops opened in a prime downtown location. The theatre complex boasts restaurant and retail space at street level and a 2-level underground parking structure.  In addition to the new 20-screen theatre, major improvements were made to the historical courthouse located on Broadway.

Combined with its reputation as the business and industrial center of the Peninsula, Redwood City is becoming an entertainment destination as well. Theater, movies, music, dance, cultural arts, and more make Redwood City an inviting community for the entire region, and beyond. Learn more about nearby Redwood City schools.
