Foster City is described by many as a unique city. Living here, you wouldn’t suspect that it’s built on a landfill. It is located just north of Silicon Valley and San Francisco is just a short train ride away. It has over 16 miles of lagoon canals and plenty of water activities. It’s beautiful, clean, well-maintained, and family-friendly.
During a visit, it’s hard not to get the feeling that this is a city that truly cares about family, community, and youth development. People generally move to Foster City to either start a family (and the families are central to the community) or work for the many Silicon Valley companies.
