This blog is dedicated to sharing why the San Francisco Peninsula is a great place to live! Home to Stanford University and bounded by San Francisco and Silicon Valley/San Jose, the cities along the San Francisco Peninsula offer a wide range of housing opportunities and many vibrant downtowns. With the Bay on one side and the Coastal Mountains on the other, combined with a temperate Mediterranean climate, the San Francisco Peninsula supports a year-round outdoor lifestyle for many. The Pacific Coast is about a 30 minute drive, and the Sierra Nevada mountains are only 3 hours away. So come soak up some California sunshine with me and make this Your Home on the San Francisco Pensinsula!
