Today, Woodside is among the wealthiest small towns in the United States. The intentionally small business district includes: a few restaurants; a grocery store; a saloon; a hardware and horse tackstore; an art gallery and picture framing store; a home and garden store; a cleaner; and a post office. Outside of the business district are the Stillheart Institute educational event center, Skywood Trading Post, the Mountain Terrace event center, and restaurants including the Michelin starred Village Pub, and Buck’s of Woodside restaurant, known among Silicon Valley entrepreneurs as the location where many VC investment deals have been signed.
Horses are part of the local culture. Numerous residents keep horses, and the town government maintains a network of horse trails. Some resident’s homes are even considered farms. The town is also popular among local cyclists and draws them in large numbers on weekends. The most popular road cycling routes include Old La Honda Road, King’s Mountain Road, Cañada Road, Southgate Drive, Skyline Boulevard and Highway 84. The Tour of California bicycle race includes several roads along and adjacent to CA-84 and Skyline Boulevard.
