Lauded as the oldest incorporated city in San Mateo County, Redwood City is located approximately 27 miles (43 km) south of San Francisco and 24 miles (39 km) north of San Jose. Redwood City’s history spans from its earliest habitation by the ancient Ohlone Indians to the present-day home of over 76,000 residents. This area constitutes a diverse, well-developed city that is home to several unique neighborhoods and several companies, both large and small.
Decades after Redwood City became the first incorporated city in San Mateo County in 1868, the United States and German governments conducted a climatological survey prior to World War I. The survey named Redwood City as part of a three-way tie with the Canary Islands and North Africa’s Mediterranean Coast for the title of the world’s best climate. In acknowledgement of this recognition, the western arch on Broadway bears the slogan “Climate Best By Government Test.”
Almost a century after the city received this honor, Redwood City has established itself as the bearer of a different sort of fame. It is now recognized as the home of several major companies, such as Ampex Data Systems Corporation, BigBand Networks, DreamWorks, Electronic Arts, Oracle, Shutterfly, and Evernote.
