San Mateo County
San Mateo County/Silicon Valley is the gateway to San Francisco, home of San Francisco International Airport and many technology and biotech firms. It's graced with both scenic beauty and the excitement of a cosmopolitan community. Come live in and explore the land between the bay and the ocean and discover for yourself its charm and natural beauty.
Hillsdale Mall is the all-encompassing shopping area for San Mateo. The directory includes large department (Nordstrom, Macy’s), small boutique (Lucky Brand Jeans), high end (Coach) and low end (H&M) stores. Adding a notch to the upscale: Michael Kors will open a store here in September 2012. Avoid driving near the mall during Christmas unless you want to raise your blood pressure. San Mateo also has an outdoor shopping center, Bridgepointe which includes anchor tenants like Target, Sports Authority, Old Navy, Marshalls and more.
