San Bruno

Once a stop on the road between San Jose and San Francisco and then home to the legendary Tanforan horse racing track, San Bruno came into its own following World War II, when a combination of population growth fed large-scale expansion of the city’s western hills. Today, San Bruno is once again on the rise as homebuyers discover this vibrant, diverse and conveniently located city offering myriad housing options ranging from turn-of-the-century cottages to mid-century subdivisions, all the way up to gleaming new condominium buildings. Downtown features mom-and-pop shops and restaurants, plus the Bay Area’s only casino, the venerable Artichoke Joe’s, and BART whisks riders to San Francisco’s Financial District in 20 minutes. Further west, rolling hills offer plenty of protected open space — and an easy freeway commute to Silicon Valley.
