Home to Facebook and much of the Silicon Valley workforce, Menlo Park has an upbeat charm that you won’t be able to resist when popping into shops downtown or exploring the natural spaces outside (and inside!) the neighborhood.
Suburban, Quaint Downtown, Boutiques, Great Resturaunts, Active Community
Drive or walk from home to Santa Cruz Avenue, Menlo Park’s charming main drag, with its fine dining and luxury boutiques — but, be careful, you won’t be able to help striking up a conversation with a friendly shopkeeper.
Menlo Park runs, bikes, kayaks and hikes — and it’s not shy about it. It’s a town that plays hard during the day and tends to go to bed early.
Dog- and family-friendly, with a penchant for being outside.
This is the kind of community where you smile at your neighbors and stop for a chat when you run into each other at the farmer’s market — a hometown respite amidst the whirlwind of tech craziness.
With median home prices at $2.2 million, Menlo Park has lots of variety for anyone looking to center themselves in the heart of Silicon Valley — from glass-walled modern marvels and quaint country escapes to cottages close to downtown.
Menlo Park is steady and upbeat, like a well-tuned guitar strummed outside for a crowd of friends, and the gorgeous weather means you’ll want to be out and about all year round.
