      Redwood City, CA - A City By The Bay

      Having lived in the northern California community of Redwood City for thirty years I can tell you that the city is centrally located near the port cities such as San Francisco, Oakland and the military community of Alameda. The city has a wonderful historic district to offer its guest to inspect. The people and community are very friendly and offer a warm welcome to all.

      The wonderful weather in Redwood City gives a breath of the ocean as it is all around you. Redwood City has just the perfect location to enjoy great weather.

      The community embraces the atmosphere of an active community. If you want to enjoy some fabulous shopping then Redwood City is the place to be. The abundance of shopping malls and places to eat are a real treat for all to enjoy. There are excellent bargains in the real estate market. The community is really beginning to be seen for the diamond it truly is.

      The central location of this community is excellent for people looking to enjoy a wide combination of the diverse locations to have fun. A person can be at the beach in 30 minutes or skiing in the Nevada mountain range 3 hours later.
