Belmont vacation rentals

Discover Belmont on the San Francisco Peninsula

Boasting an enviable setting halfway between San Francisco and San Jose, you could say that Belmont offers the best of both worlds. Whether you want to hang with the hippies and fashionistas in the City by the Bay or work your way through the Asian eateries along the Capital of Silicon Valley's Story Road, you'll find it all within touching distance of Belmont vacation rentals. Be sure to pause a while, though. With its small-town ambiance, swaths of open space, and sweeping views of the San Francisco Valley, Belmont has a charm of its own.

Find resort-style amenities near Belmont

When you've set up home in your Belmont vacation rental, you'll find an array of activities in the surrounding area. The nearby Foster Lagoon, within a 10-minute drive of many rentals, is considered one of the best places in the world to get to grips with windsurfing, although paddle boats and kayaks are available to rent if that's not your thing. This resort-style spot is also home to the Leo Ryan Park Amphitheater, host of the Summer Concert Series, a long-running event that fills the air with live music on Friday nights in July and August.

Belmont is a must-visit in summer

You could book a Belmont vacation rental in the summer months when temperatures in July and August can reach the high 70s _ this time is perfect for heading to nearby Old Downtown San Mateo to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining at the hotbed of ethnic restaurants. With more than 250 sunny days each year, there are plenty of nice days left for spring and fall, both of which can be a great time to indulge in upscale souvenir hunting at nearby Stanford Shopping Center or ice skating at Bridgepointe. Winter, especially January, can bring with it a fair amount of rainy days.

Enjoy the great outdoors in Belmont

While green spaces such as Hidden Canyon and Twin Pines Parks are great for picnics and gentle strolls, if you prefer your landscape just a little more rugged, the surrounding area comes up trumps with numerous open space preserves and off-the-beaten-track hiking trails surrounded by fragrant wildflowers. Serious nature lovers will want to head to Montara Mountain where those who make it all the way to Scarpet Peak will be rewarded with sweeping views of pristine coastal landscapes and the sight of the sun breaking through the gaps in the often fog-bound peninsula coastline.
