Palo Alto

The birthplace of Silicon Valley is a California dream.

  • Tech
  • Golf
  • Nature
  • Bicycling
  • College

Palo Alto is known as the birthplace of Silicon Valley and that unique heritage is proudly on display, with the Computer History Museum just down the street from Google’s world headquarters and countless other tech companies all over town. The restaurant scene rivals that of nearby San Francisco, with many small, independent eateries serving up some of the best food in the Bay Area.

Residents have access to dozens of options for outdoor recreation, including the gorgeous hiking and biking trails through the surrounding nature preserves, several golf courses, and easy access to San Francisco Bay. Bicycling is a popular mode of transportation around Palo Alto, with many bike-friendly routes around the city.

Palo Alto is famous as the home of Stanford University, and the campus is one of the most dominant landmarks in the area. City residents enjoy many perks from living so close to this major college, particularly the academic community, sporting events, and art exhibits. The art scene extends off-campus to places like the Allied Arts Guild, Palo Alto Art Center, and Cantor Arts Center. Parents will find plenty of activities for young children too, such as the Palo Alto Community Theatre and the Junior Museum & Zoo.
