A green-belt community of beautiful historic cemeteries and agricultural gardens, Colma encircles a thriving commercial area. The abundance of cemeteries dates back to the 1900's, when land scarcity prompted San Francisco to look elsewhere for internments. Over the years, many developments have emerged to form a charming community and modern city infrastructure tucked away in the gentle rolling hills of the Peninsula. Newcomers will find in Colma, a pleasing combination of small-town amenities and services including restaurants, one of Northern California's largest auto dealerships, shopping districts, a movie theater and a first-rate outlet center. The expanded amenities of neighboring Daly City make life in Colma even more attractive and convenient.
