Wellness in Woodside

Woodside is the perfect place to get away from it all and immerse yourself in nature. This small town of about 5,000 residents, incorporated into San Mateo County, offers a distinctly rural feel, much different from its Silicon Valley neighbors. Many of the elites in the tech and business world have chosen to make this their home, though—which is why Woodside is one of the wealthiest communities in the country. And it’s easy to see why: The natural beauty of the area is something to behold. Enjoy myriad trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding that take you through breathtaking redwood forests. Quaint and quiet downtown Woodside has only a handful of eateries, but they are worth a visit—one is even Michelin-starred. And no visit would be complete without a peek inside the Woodside Store, a California Historical Landmark.
