Inspired San Carlos Travel Tips

Discover Silicon Valley: High Tech Meets High Touch

Silicon Valley and surrounding San Mateo County is a short drive from San Francisco. While the area is known for its high tech giants, it is also filled with great outdoor activities, farm fresh dining, art and architectural treasures and some “wow” accommodations. We partnered with Susan Lanier-Graham of Wander With Wonder to show us the […]

Things to Do in Santa Clara and the Silicon Valley

This weekend, travelers will be descending on California’s Bay Area to attend and take part in the festivities around the “big game.” And while most people are familiar with the many attractions of San Francisco – like Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge and the famous cable cars – fewer people are likely to know much […]

Road Trip! Playing Around Pescadero

It was a rare, crystal-clear, northern California morning, and we were driving south along famous Highway One past Pacifica toward the small town of Pescadero. Climbing through Devil’s Slide, we could see the surf crashing on shore as calla lilies bloomed wildly beside the road’s edge. We were in no hurry, and stayed to the […]

San Carlos Hotel & Travel Guide

Nestled between the calm waters of San Francisco Bay and the vastness of the Pacific Ocean is the quiet community of San Carlos. Known for its gently rolling hills and charming downtown area, the “City of Good Living” is just 25 miles away from the legendary San Francisco, making it easy to explore the storied Bay Area before returning to your quiet paradise. But this community has plenty to offer on its own, as you’ll swiftly discover when you check into a San Carlos hotel.

Visiting San Carlos

“When one is in San Carlos,” Mark Twain once said, “one visits Laurel Street.” To be fair, he likely did not say those exact words, but we have it on good authority that he would agree with the statement. A walk down this main thoroughfare will let you taste a little of everything San Carlos has to offer. Let sweets made from scratch melt in your mouth at one of the bakeries, or pick the perfect pairing at a wine bar.

Food is life, and for that reason (among others, of course!) many wise wanderers use San Carlos motels to explore the culinary scene of the greater Bay Area. You’re so close to the ocean: embrace the sweet lure of seafood. Book one of our San Carlos rental cars and glide the 15 miles west to Half Moon Bay, a beautiful seaside community set against the gentle curve of the coastline. Delight in fresh fish, lobster, and crab at the harbor, then watch the sky shift through a brilliant kaleidoscope of colors as the sun eases into the sea and the twinkling stars form a glowing tapestry in the heavens.

Haven’t you put off a trip to Northern California long enough? Travelocity will guide you to your dream stay in the best hotels in San Carlos. But maybe there’s another place you want to visit…a city framed by a striking bridge and enough stories to fill a thousand novels. Has the “City by the Bay” captured your imagination yet? If so, we have San Francisco hotels with your name on them. Trust Travelocity to bridge the chasm between where you are and where you want to be – in this case, the beautiful Bay Area.
