Despite its location in Silicon Valley, Millbrae is a quiet, family oriented town with comfortable commutes to tech jobs, San Francisco, and San Francisco Airport. It’s only about 15 miles from San Francisco and it’s bordered by San Bruno and Burlingame.
Millbrae is a small city, with a population of around 21,000 people. It got its name from Darius Ogden Mills, who purchased land there in the 1860s. That provided the “Mill” part of the name. “Brae” is a Scottish word for “rolling hills.”
Millbrae is home to the famous Green Hills Country Club, which was designed by architect Dr. Alister MacKenzie.
Millbrae is a family city, with some of the best public schools and some of the most active and interested parents in the Bay Area. Most of Millbrae’s business, though, comes from hotels and tourism, specifically because of its proximity to the airport.
Like San Francisco, Millbrae’s climate is mild. Highs in July typically reach just over 70 degrees and lows in January are in the low 40s. Rain is scarce, with only about 20 inches a year, close to half what the national average is.
The cost of living in Millbrae is high. Median home prices are close to $1.4 million and rentals go for about $4,200 a month.
