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.
