Nestled between the calm waters of San Francisco Bay and the vastness of the Pacific Ocean is the quiet community of San Carlos. Known for its gently rolling hills and charming downtown area, the “City of Good Living” is just 25 miles away from the legendary San Francisco, making it easy to explore the storied Bay Area before returning to your quiet paradise. But this community has plenty to offer on its own, as you’ll swiftly discover when you check into a San Carlos hotel.
“When one is in San Carlos,” Mark Twain once said, “one visits Laurel Street.” To be fair, he likely did not say those exact words, but we have it on good authority that he would agree with the statement. A walk down this main thoroughfare will let you taste a little of everything San Carlos has to offer. Let sweets made from scratch melt in your mouth at one of the bakeries, or pick the perfect pairing at a wine bar.
Food is life, and for that reason (among others, of course!) many wise wanderers use San Carlos motels to explore the culinary scene of the greater Bay Area. You’re so close to the ocean: embrace the sweet lure of seafood. Book one of our San Carlos rental cars and glide the 15 miles west to Half Moon Bay, a beautiful seaside community set against the gentle curve of the coastline. Delight in fresh fish, lobster, and crab at the harbor, then watch the sky shift through a brilliant kaleidoscope of colors as the sun eases into the sea and the twinkling stars form a glowing tapestry in the heavens.
