"For Work and a Bit of Play"

From the Home Depot and Costco the neighborhood curves north into a more industrial area before terminating in the Mariner’s Point Golf Course where you can take in a few holes on any given day.

Some of the companies in between include, Sansuro Games—a video game company; Quantum Analytics, who provides analytic tools for companies; and Gilead, a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to research on terminal diseases.

That is just a taste of some of the companies that choose Foster City as their home.

There are also a few food and entertainment spots here as well, including The Great American Bistro (in the Hilton) and Mariner’s Point Bar & Grill.

As far as night spots go, the Clubhouse Bistro probably offers the best nightclub experience in this part of the Peninsula and is definitely worth a visit. I only recently came here for the first time and really had a good time—definitely sophisticated adult fun.

This is not really a residential area, but it is the kind of place that you like to have around for visiting business partners (there are a number of hotels here) and just so that you can get out on the town every so often.

"Too commercial, too ordinary"

Nestled towards the northern edge of Foster City, Vintage Park is a flat, ordinarily commercial bayside community. It encompasses about a half dozen, rarely visited business streets stretching from US Route 92 all the way to the San Francisco Bay. For the perspective resident, there are a handful of comfortable living quarters scattered throughout the area. But for the most part, the district is saturated with a number of open-spaced business parks fitted with two-story office buildings and large, employee parking lots.

If you’ve never visited Vintage Park, chances are you never will. It’s only notable perk is the Mariner’s Point Golf Center, which skirts the northern edge of the community. The golfing hub is complete with a driving range, bar and grill and a 9-hole par-3 golf course set along the majestic San Francisco Bay. And just beside it is the long, winding trail which follows the bay’s shoreline.

For the rest of the community, its mostly commercial business. You’ll likely come across mildly attractive office parks, anonymous commercial buildings and large telephone polls blemishing the skyline. If you head towards the southern end of the district, the Bridgepointe Shopping Center provides the community with department store shopping and a Home Depot, a couple restaurants and even an indoor ice rink.
