The Lanes neighborhood was coined for its unique configuration of small lanes that connect into two ‘hidden’ parks. Its tree-lined streets, charming homes and walking access to amenities make it one of San Mateo’s most sought-after areas. The Lanes’ excellent Walk Score® of 87 out of 100 highlights the neighborhood’s convenience. The neighborhood offers two “hidden” parks and a short distance to Hillsdale Mall, Caltrain, a public library and Laurel Elementary. Hillsdale Mall offers over 100 shops and restaurants including Nordstrom, Williams-Sonoma and Paul Martin’s American Grill. Nearby Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe’s and Safeway make shopping for necessities simple.

One of the largest cities on the San Francisco Peninsula, San Mateo boasts many options for recreation as well as a revitalized downtown, with a large movie theater, restaurants, and bars. Spanish explorers first came to present-day San Mateo on a 1776 scouting trip and named the creek they slept beside San Mateo Creek. In 1863, the railroad arrived in San Mateo, leading some wealthy San Franciscans to build summer and weekend homes in the area.

The city is home to the Hillsdale Shopping Center and a number of parks -- including Central Park and the Coyote Point Recreation Area. The CuriOdyssey museum at Coyote Point offers science and wildlife exhibits for children and adults, some of which feature live animals. For a breathtakingly beautiful jog, hike, or bicycling outing, locals head to the Sawyer Camp Trail at the Crystal Springs Reservoir.
