Situated just two miles from SFO, Millbrae is easily accessible to San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Those major urban areas, though, are a world apart from the relaxed and suburban atmosphere of Millbrae. The lovely Mediterranean climate, picturesque downtown and local commerce combine to make this one of San Mateo County’s jewels.
Millbrae dates back to the mid-19th century as a Spanish ranch for Darius Mills. Millbrae takes its name from the Mills family, and the Scottish word for rolling hills, “brae.” Today, it’s a flourishing town with local businesses, good schools and safe communities.
The scenic hills provide idyllic natural surroundings for one of the Bay Area’s most accessible towns with BART, CalTrain and SamTrain intersecting near the downtown. From historic estate-sized homes to new developments, Millbrae is a great choice for families as well as commuters.
