Tips from locals
Interesting town with a mixture of extremely gentrified and historic areas. Downtown Redwood City is a great time with lots of shopping and dining. Favorite places to go: Gourmet Haus Staudt (German brew house), Coffeebar, FreeWheel Brewing, Milagros, Taqueria El Grullense.
Downtown redwood city (vicinity Broadway and Main Street) is a vibrant, easy to walk area with tons of restaurants, coffee shops, and other things to see and do.
The theater is fine, but the local concerts and activities in the town Square are always a good source of low-key entertainment. There are seasonal celebrations from Oktoberfest to summertime music.
