Finally wait it out in the Ramen Dojo line to order the Garlic Pork Ramen topped with corn.

Create a Meetup Group and brush up on those mobile photography skills during weekly walks along the nearby Bay Trail.

Catch up with a friend over craft cocktails at Mortar & Pestle, a must try is the “Land of Milk & Honey”.

Catch a specialty Pop-up or chef inspired Family-style Friday Night Dinner at KitchenTown San Mateo.

Savor a Blue Bottle Latte and a Caramelized Belgian-style Liege Waffle while finally finishing ‘A Man Called Ove‘.

Mark these San Mateo Michelin stars off the ‘must try’ list in 2017. Return to All Spice (at least once) to dive back into ‘Not your mama’s aloo gobi’.


Brave the wind and enjoy a day exploring Coyote Point, bicycle waterside, hike from the beach up to CuriOdyssey or sign up for some Windsurfing lessons at Boardsports.

Meet the Makers just next door at Maker Faire.

Leave the car at home, dust off the bike, stop by the Bay Meadows/ Kaiser Energizer Station and enjoy the commute during Bike to Work Day 2017.

Visit the water feature at Ryder Park on a hot summer day, a throw back to those time we used to run through the sprinkler.

Take a half day on a Monday, pick up the kids and join San Mateo neighbors in Paddock Park for some free, family-friendly fun at Momdays and dad days too from 3-5pm.

Order 2 scoops of Salted Butterscotch ice cream from Tin Pot Creamery at Bay Meadows and enjoy it during a walk through Landing Green Park.

Walkscore.com rates Bay Meadows high on the list for walkable locations to live on the San Francisco Peninsula and for good reason! Why? Because we are steps from shopping (Hillsdale Center), groceries (Whole Foods), parks, a farmer’s market and an easy bike-ride from downtown San Mateo with its burgeoning restaurant scene. San Mateo’s shared Bay Bikes are on-site, so no need to own your own. And Caltrain is a quick stroll from anywhere in the neighborhood.
