Belmont

Belmont is a tranquil community with a high quality of life built primarily on the hills overlooking San Francisco Bay and the coastal range. The small, but busy, downtown has easy access to freeway and rail transportation and is a mix of locally owned stores, shops and bigger outlets. The population of 25,000 primarily works in San Mateo County with only 17 % commuting elsewhere.

Schools are very highly regarded – both private and public institutions have exceptionally high-test scores and several community colleges in the adjacent towns plus scenic Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont itself. (Some of this city’s public schools serve a section of Redwood Shores.)

Belmont has a rich heritage of fine homes from the turn of the twentieth century and enjoys the security of a very low crime rate less than one-fifth the national average.  Many houses sit high enough on the hills to enjoy stunning water views of the San Francisco Bay, and others may take in the Peninsula. Between the sweeping vistas and a lot of classic architecture, Belmont is blessed with an abundance of beauty.

The weather in Belmont, and along the San Francisco Pensinsula generally, is dominated by the Pacific Ocean.  It’s not as cold or windy as San Francisco, but it’s not as warm or dry as San Jose.  Expect more fog, wind, and cooler temps than you’d find in the South Bay or Santa Clara County, but not enough to make someone like Mark Twain quip about the summers being worse that a terrible winter (as he did for San Francisco).
