One Location That’s Close to Everything, Including Relaxation. One Marina enjoys an ideal location. Just 25 miles south of San Francisco, and 27 miles north of San Jose, Redwood City is, literally and figuratively, in the center of the Bay Area. To get to San Jose or San Francisco for work or play, there’s easy freeway access, a CalTrain station located conveniently downtown, numerous SamTrans bus routes, even a connection to BART not far away. One Marina is so central that it’s also easy to reach Half Moon Bay, Monterey, Carmel, the East Bay and Wine Country – all the places you want to go when you have a little free time.
